The Play Music family plan that we heard about back in September has finally become a reality. You can subscribe in the next few days for $14.99 a month, and that will include you and up to five additional family members. The plan will be available in the US, Canada, UK, Australia, France, and Germany at launch with more coming soon.
The family plan grants the exact same benefits as individual subscriptions, including no ads and unlimited access to the 35 million song library. This also naturally now carries with it the benefits of YouTube Red, a potentially big difference maker for families with kids that binge YouTube content.
The family plan gives Play Music parity with Apple Music at $14.99 and launches them ahead of Spotify, which has stuck with a $5 surcharge per extra user.
For music and YouTube fans with a family, the Play Music family plan just became a no brainer.
