      Google Play Music

      Ive been using iTunes match making service for a couple of years but am thinking of moving from iPhone to android.

      There are 4 of us with apple iPhones in the house at the moment. With iTunes we can download or stream music from our own uploaded library all at the same time.

      As we look to move away from apple we are considering moving to google play music. Is there a way we can all listen to the music at the same time from one Google account similar to the way iTunes works?

      Pretty much yes to that,
      I use Google play on an iPad, iPhone, PC and Samsung Galaxy Mega 6.3 using the same google account and also use to play on TV via Chromecast.

      Also, Google offer a way to transfer your itunes library over to Google play

      We have 1 library for the house, will I need 4 separate google music accounts in case we all want to listen to a different device if out and about at the same time.

      Won't this lead to them all having the same contacts and each will be able to see the others search history on all the devices too?
      I use android and know you can sync multiple google accounts on each phone/device but can you have Google music syncing to a group account whilst still having a separate account syncing search and contacts, etc?
