Google may introduce a family plan for its music service tomorrow

Matching one of Apple Music's best features

Google Play Music may be about to catch up on one of Apple Music's best selling points. According to Android Police, Google will announce a $14.99 per month family plan tomorrow that allows six people to stream music from separate accounts. That's identical to Apple Music's family plan, which was introduced when the service launched in June. Of course, there's a lot more that goes into choosing a streaming service than just price, but lowering the price this dramatically can make Google Play Music into a legitimate option for families that otherwise would have written it off. It also gives Google an edge on Spotify, which still charges $5 per additional user. The new plan is expected to be announced tomorrow during Google's event.
