Dropbox Family is now available for everyone, and it's one hell of a bad deal

Dropbox Family is now available for everyone, and it's one hell of a bad deal

Not too long ago, Dropbox introduced a whole slew of new features to its subscribers without raising its prices: there's its own password manager, the extra secure Dropbox Vault, and the option to back up select folders outside Dropbox from your computer. The company also announced a Family plan that would let up to six people share a single 2TB account, and today, this new tier is available to everyone. It costs $16.99 a month, which is just $7 more than a one-user Dropbox Plus subscription.

Amazon Music Unlimited family plan is available in the U.S.

There are multiple layers to Amazon's Prime subscription model, from full access to video to just Kindle. All of these pricing tiers offer a lot of choice on how you get your media from Amazon's ecosystem, which is pretty great. Music Unlimited was added to this list a month ago, offering what Prime Music did already, but with a whole lot more content. An additional family plan was announced for those interested, allowing up to six people to access the vast selection of music. Well, now that new plan is available in the US.

Hands-On With Google Play Music's Family Plan – Trusting Relatives With Shared Music And Shared Payment Methods

Hands-On With Google Play Music's Family Plan – Trusting Relatives With Shared Music And Shared Payment Methods

Google announced family plans for Play Music (and YouTube Red) back in September alongside this year's Nexus lineup. The very competitively priced group subscription was made official yesterday and can be activated through the Play Music app. As it turns out, this isn't just a regular standalone subscription, but it's actually part of Google's new Family Groups that will ultimately bring app and media sharing to the Play Store.

Yes, sharing your music subscription means you're also sharing a credit card.

A pair of APK Teardowns from both the store and Play services gave away most of the details about how this system will eventually work.

Play Music v6.1 Adds Auto-Offline Music Caching, Prepares For Family Plans And Android Wear With Speakers [APK Teardown + Download]

With all of the activity surrounding YouTube Red, including a brand new YouTube Music app, it seems like a good time for a Play Music update. Version 6.1 just landed and aside from a mysterious new "Auto-offline" feature and a bit of cleanup in the Settings screen, it looks like a pretty typical bug fix release. However, the teardown tells a different story. It looks like this version also brings support for the recently announced family plans and Android Wear speaker support. As usual, we've also got a download link at the bottom if you can't wait for the apk to roll out to your account.

T-Mobile Brings Unlimited Data To Family Plans, Starting At $100 For Two People

T-Mobile Brings Unlimited Data To Family Plans, Starting At $100 For Two People

T-Mobile's unlimited talk, text, and data plan is the big carrier option to beat at $80 a month. But so far it's only been available to individual customers - if you have four people and you want four lines of unlimited data, you need four different accounts. Starting tomorrow, December 10th, unlimited data will be available for families as well. The cheapest option is unlimited talk, text, and data on two lines for $100 a month, a $60 savings over the old structure.

Family

Expanding your cell phone family is similarly thrifty, at least in the realm of big bucket data. Each additional line with unlimited everything costs an extra $40, up to ten separate lines.

T-Mobile Expands Its Family Plan To 10 Lines, Will Double Data For People Who Add Tablets

T-Mobile Expands Its Family Plan To 10 Lines, Will Double Data For People Who Add Tablets

Not content to fire back at the competition with just one volley, the company has continued its barrage with two new announcements. For starters, it's opening up family plans from a limit of five to up to ten lines. For most of us, that inherently means we're going to have to look outside of our immediate families to hit the max. It's time to get grandma a smartphone, call up that cheap uncle, and bring in a couple of college-bound cousins. Each additional line adds $10 per month after the second subscriber, and each person gets their own dedicated amount of data.

Sprint Announces Family Share Pack Offering 20GB Of Shared Data For $100 Per Month Through 2015, Available August 22nd

Sprint has heard your regular complaints about its slow network, your jabs at its decision to cram an r into the word family, and your steady insistence that it just isn't good enough to compete. Now the company is trying to turn that around with a bargain that, on paper at least, makes for a good deal. It's rolling out a new family plan called the Family Share Pack offering 20GB of shared data plus 2GB per device for just $100 a month. The offer supports up to ten lines and will be available starting August 22nd.
