Google now lets you share movie & app purchases with your family

28 Jul 2016 | Rasmus Larsen |

Google is introducing “Google Play Family Library”, a way to share movies, TV shows, books and apps with family. It will roll over to 12 countries over the next few days – with more to follow.

Share content with your family

So, you bought the latest Star Wars movie from Google’s digital movie store and want to share it with the whole family so they can watch it on their TVs, phones, tablets, and PCs, too. Until now there has been no easy and obvious way to do that on Google Play.

Two years after Apple launched its version of Family Sharing, Google is finally introducing the same feature called Google Play Family Library. In essence, it is a way to share “an eligible app, game, movie, TV show, or book in the Play Store“ with up to six family members. Music is not included.

All shared content can be enjoyed on Android devices. TV shows, movies and books can also be enjoyed on iOS devices and the web. Google says that you get granular controls over what to share so you can keep certain items private, if you so wish.

You can set up one credit card for all family purchases or let family members buy content with their personal card. For the young ones you will have the “option to approve each of their purchases”, says Google.

Family Library will roll out over the next few days in Australia, Brazil, Canada, France, Germany, Ireland, Italy, Japan, Mexico, New Zealand, the United Kingdom and the United States. To get started go here.
