Google Introduces 'Family Group' To Share Calendars, Photos, Reminders And More
Google is obviously adding family-friendly functionality in its products, nowadays. In fact, the search giant is currently introducing a “Family Group” feature in order to share calendars, photos, reminders, notes and more. This feature will add up to the list of newly released upgrades that Google wants to achieve before this year ends.
How Does Family Group Works?
Google's new Family Group feature supports up to six people, with one person designated as the “manager.” This Google user is being able to create and manage accounts for those under 13 years old and set payment methods. Aside from that, he/she can also decide what Google services each family member have access to. On the other hand, the “parent” accounts can approve Google Play Store purchase requests, as well as change other settings, especially content restriction.
Aside from calendars, photos, reminders and notes, there are a lot more inclusions in this new wide-range trait. According to 9to5Google, services included in the Family Group are Google Play Family Library, Play Music family plan and YouTube TV.
In addition to that, all users who are enrolled in Google Photos will see a new family group selection in the sharing menu. This option will allow them to easily access photos and videos and send it eventually to other members of the group. Family functionality in Calendar, as well as in Keep, are similar with shared events, notes, reminders and other lists.
According to ZDNet, today's announcement follows the Google Family Link feature last month. It is a new upgrade for parental control application on Android device. Family features for Google Calendar, Keep, and Photos are rolling out starting today in Australia, Brazil, Canada, France, Germany, Ireland, Italy, Japan, Mexico, New Zealand, Russia, Spain, United Kingdom, and the United States. Until then, users can start by creating a family group.
