I've posted feedback to Google.  Will see what their response this.  Hope they don't say it doesn't work because I have a Google Apps account.

Argh, I hate how they leave google apps out of everything, they need to create a filter that says it's a business account or personal account, if marked personal then treat it as a standard gmail account.

That's why the wife and I have both types of accounts. Standard Google accounts are the main accounts for everything android, but Google Apps accounts for important stuff/work/etc.




Keep calm, and carry on posting.

Yes that would be a good idea if we knew that from the start, for me to swap to a standard gmail account now I would have to re-purchase all my apps etc.
I don't see anyway of transferring purchases from a google apps account to a gmail account.

Yeah, went live for me last night, so set up the family.

 

Google Music Family Plan is $20 a month, does anyone know if the Music family plan still extends to Youtube Red? 

 

*Edit* So I subscribed to the Music Plan which says Youtube Red is included in the subscription, but in the Youtube app it says I am only eligible for the trial? I'm confused.

Yup same here, it's just when you go into Youtube and check settings, it still says 'Get Youtube Red'.

 

So not sure where to get from there.

Quick update on this, contacted Google (both Youtube and Play helpdesks)and they couldn't figure out why it hadn't activated.

 

Long story short, we decided I would cancel (they'd refund me my first sub) give it a day and then resubscribe. It worked!
