Google’s letting you share your Play Store purchases with your family


Google launched a new feature today called Google Play Family Library that lets you share your Play Store purchases with up to five other family members.


It’s a good move for users, even though Google is playing catch up here – Apple’s been allowing this for about two years – but right now, only people in the US are eligible to use it.

A wider rollout to Australia, Brazil, Canada, France, Germany, Ireland, Italy, Japan, Mexico, New Zealand, and the United Kingdom will follow.
