Google has a big day coming tomorrow, with two Nexus phones, a new Chromecast (with possibly an audio-extender version as well) and Spotify partnership. But Google has their own music service and that’s about to get a bump with a family plan according to Android Police.
The rumour is that Google will follow in the footsteps of both Spotify and Apple with a family option to listen to music on Google Play for US$14.99 a month – which will include unlimited streaming for up to six family members from their own account, meaning you won’t have strange titles showing up in your playlists.we’ll have to wait and see how much it works out to in Australia.
Of course with Google’s last music service – YouTube Music Key – still yet to launch outside the US, there’s always the possibility the Family Plan may stay US-only for a time. But, with Google Play All Access available in Australia, we do have hopes it may make its way here soon.
We’re ready for this, but it’s still just a rumour until Google makes it official, which Android Police think will happen at Google’s event tomorrow morning. Chris will be there to ask all the difficult questions about availability and we hope to have answers as soon as possible if this is announced.
Would you use a ‘Family’ plan for Google Play Music or do you prefer other services?
