Google announces Play Music family plan, $14.99 per month for up to 6 people
Alongside the brand new Nexus 5X and Nexus 6P, Google today announced a new pricing tier for Play Music All Access. Instead of paying full price for multiple accounts, family members will now be able to join a single Family Plan that costs $14.99 per month. Up to six family members can join a single Family Plan, allowing them to stream unlimited music anytime, on any device, for a much lower monthly fee.
In its current form, a single Play Music All Access subscription costs $9.99 per month, making it quite the expensive service for multiple users. But now with this new pricing tier, even having two users on the same Family Plan will save $5 per month. This is certainly a long overdue feature, and we’re sure many fans of the service will be happy to sign up.
For comparison, Spotify’s family plan costs $29.99 per month for just five users, while Apple Music’s family plan costs the exact same as Google’s plan. This makes Play Music All Access a much more attractive music streaming service when comparing to other platforms.
Google says the new family pricing will roll out later this year. We’ll be sure to let you know when we get our hands on the details!
