Google simplifies sharing notes, calendars and photos with family

Google Brings Family Features to You Tube TV Calendar Keep and ​Google Families makes it easy to share calendars, photos, and reminders

The search giant already allows users to share music and other content from Google Play with "Google Play Music family plan" and "Google Play Family Library" respectively but it has now made family sharing easier for YouTube TV, Calendar, Photos, and Keep with the introduction of "family group". Make sure you know what you're getting into before joining someone's family group-you can only change your family group membership once every 12 months.

Over there you'll see that family groups are now supported for YouTube TV, Google Calendar, Google Keep, and Google Photos, alongside Google Play Music (which includes YouTube Red) and the Play Store.

Because constantly swapping passwords and usernames can be a pain, (if not also a security risk) Google is adding new ways for families to share with each other while still staying logged-on to their own private Google Accounts.

And while shared Google Calendars are nothing new, now a "Family" calendar will automatically be created once you've set up a family group.

Google Photos. Google announced the awesome new sharing functionality coming to Google Photos last week. A new "Family group" option will appear when you go to share a photo or album, so you can get those images and videos to multiple people in a few taps rather than sending them individually. In case the feature is not yet available for your region you can try sideloading an API.

You can find out more at the Google Families website.

Further the addition of family groups to the Calendar app means that there is a separate calendar that lists all the activities that are planned by your family group.
