(Rolling Out Now) Family Library Is Official Allows Google Play Purchase Sharing W/ Up To Six Members

Over the past months we’ve seen everything but the actual product roll out and that product is Family Library and good news everybody it’s here! The Play Store will now allow users to share eligible apps, games, movies, TV shows, or books with up to six people, also there’s a number of controls to manage sharing. When you buy an eligible app, game, movie, TV show, or book in the Play Store, you can now share it with your family—across devices—with no additional sign-up fee.

Eligible Google Play listings will feature a Family Library toggle right under the install button. It allows family members to keep purchases private within their own personal library. Switching the toggle on will make Android apps available on the devices of up to six family members, while movies, TV shows, and books will be made available on iOS and the web.

Music as of now is functioning differently as it’s still recommending that you sign up for the Play Music family plan.

Anything bought after July 2nd is automatically shared and anything before is up to the dev.

Starting today, Family Library will be rolling out over the next few days and will be available in Australia, Brazil, Canada, France, Germany, Ireland, Italy, Japan, Mexico, New Zealand, the United Kingdom and the United States. To get started, sign up in Google Play, invite your family members, and start sharing what you love!
