Google to offer shared Play Music Family accounts, rumor indicates

Google Play Music

Streaming music seems to have become the next great thing, with many companies offering free streaming with ads and monthly unlimited plans. There is already Spotify, Pandora, Apple Music, and of course Google’s Play Music. Some of those offer a family plan for a discounted rate between multiple users. Google’s plan doesn’t include that, yet.

According to the latest rumors from Android Police, tomorrow Google will announce a new plan for consumers who want to save some cash by partnering up on a streaming service. Google’s All Access plan will allow six family members to stream unlimited music all for just $14.99 a month. All users will be able to sign in to their own Google account for the service, so no need for sharing precious account details.

This is definitely strategic pricing because Google’s biggest competitor, Apple, has their streaming service priced the exact same: six family members for $14.99 a month. To give a perspective at how good of a deal that is, Spotify charges $14.99 a month for just two people. Every time you add a user on Spotify, the price continues to climb

Tomorrow is expected to be quite a big day for Google, as they are expected to debut their two new smartphones, the LG-made Nexus 5X and Huawei-made Nexus 6P. To top that off, Google is expected to announce the new Chromecast. Our very own Derrick will be in San Francisco for the event, so keep your eye out.
