Google launches Play Music Family Plan

Yesterday was filled with goodies from Google, from new Nexus devices to new Chromecast devices, there was just about something for everyone, including music lovers. Google announced a new Play Music Family Plan, allowing for several different accounts to be on the same plan.

For $14.99 a month, the Play Music Family Plan allows for six accounts to share one plan. This will be available sometime later this year.

Unfortunately, that is all the details we have about the Google Play Music Family Plan (my, what a mouthful!). Currently, one account can have 10 devices linked to a Play Music subscription, with 5 of those being smartphones. To delete a device off an account is easy, but you can only remove 4 devices in a year. How the new Play Music Family Plan will affect these current restrictions is unclear, but we’ll be sure to keep an eye out to let you know.

For most people, the above won’t affect them much, as its unlikely they go through that many devices. However, some people may already share their Play Music subscription with others, so the details of how the Family Plan will affect that will be something to keep an eye out for.

  • Did they really “launch” it if it’s being released next year? Sorry in advance for being critical of your word choice.

      Agreed. I just checked now to see if there was an actual launch date set and got excited when I saw the headline. It’s rather misleading, even if unintentionally so.
