Google announced Google Play Family Library during the Google I/O event this May and it seems that the new service will start rolling out this month. The service allows users to share apps, movies and other content with up to 6 family members.

Google will allow users to share content like movies and apps that they purchase through the Play Store with up to six family members, according to Gizmodo. The content can be shared across Android devices, Google’s websites and even Google Play apps on iOS.

The service is quite similar to Apple’s iCloud Family Sharing platform. Google’s service will support sharing books and videos, just like Apple’s service. There will be some restrictions on the service, as shared videos will be streamed only on one device at a time.

Google’s Play Family Library will allow users to create a family group and share a single payment method, so that parents can restrict purchases by demanding download approval.

The new service doesn’t allow users to share music, as Google already has a dedicated family plan for its music streaming service which costs $14.99 per month and it’s called Play Music All Access. The service was released last December and it allows users to share music with other users.

Google Play Family Library will start rolling out this month and the service will be initially available to some countries, including Australia, Brazil, Canada, France, Germany, Japan, the UK, and the US. The service is expected to expand to other countries soon.
