Google announced that it would be adding a family plan to Play Music All Access back at the company’s September event, and since then we haven’t really heard too many details regarding the new pricing tier. That’s changing today, as Google has just announced that residents in the U.S., U.K., Canada, Australia, France and Germany will be able to sign up for the Google Play Music family plan “in the coming days.” So, it may not be available yet, but at least we know it will be in a few days’ time.
The family plan will get you a total of up to six subscriptions to Play Music All Access for $14.99 per month. This means your whole family will be able to enjoy ad-free, unlimited access to Play Music’s vast library of songs and artists. Family members can stream simultaneously on any device. This $14.99 price point also gives U.S. residents access to YouTube Red, Google’s advertisement-free version of YouTube. So to clarify, all six family members get access to unlimited, ad-free music streaming and YouTube Red for just $14.99 per month. Not a bad deal!
The family plan will be available to all of the countries listed above in the coming days, and Google says more regions will be added in the future. Will you be signing up for a Play Music family plan? Be sure to speak up in the comments!
