According to Gizmodo, Google will allow now its users to share books, apps, TV shows and movies purchased from the Play Store via Google's family plan.

The account manager will be able to decide who are the other family members allowed to access content. The administrator of the account will also be able to hide certain things from children.
In addition, the manager will be responsible for any purchases made through the account and for this reason he will be required to input a credit card. The common family account could be used by any of those family members to download already purchased content free of charge.
