Apple’s long-awaited streaming service debuted earlier this year, with the arrival of Apple Music. First announced at WWDC, we’ve subsequently seen things go live, and soon they’ll be expanding to other platforms, with an Android app in the works. As part of its subscription options, Apple did something a little different with its family plan, offering up to six users access for less than the price of two individual memberships. Now it sounds like Google could be about to steal a page from Apple’s playbook, with word that Google Play Music is about to pick up a family plan of its own.

Tomorrow’s set to bring us new Nexus phones, Android 6.0 Marshmallow, and maybe even a new Chromecast, and now the rumor mill claims that we’ll also be hearing about this new Play Music family account option. Just like Apple, Google’s expected to charge a household $15 a month for access. Individual accounts should stay at the same $10/month rate.

A shameless attempt to copy Apple? Perhaps. Then again, Apple hardly invented the streaming-radio family plan – Spotify has had its own option since last fall – but it’s hard to deny the extent to which Google’s tipped to mirror Apple’s pricing.

Check back with Pocketnow tomorrow for coverage of all Google’s announcements, from hardware, to services like Google Play Music – and maybe even a few surprises. Things get started at 9am Pacific, 12pm Eastern.
