Late to the party, Google confirmed today that it will finally introduce a family plan “later this year” for its tediously named streaming service, Google Play Music All Access. The plan will cost subscribers $15 per month for up to six users.

The service, which first launched in 2013, is priced competitively alongside Apple Music, but undercuts SpotifyRdio, and Tidal‘s family pricing structures. Amazon Prime Music, Microsoft’s Groove Music Pass, and Pandora, meanwhile, do not offer family plans.

Here’s how Google Play Music’s family plan compares to those of Apple, Spotify, Tidal, and more.

Correction 4:30 p.m. PT: Rhapsody’s pricing structure mirrors Spotify’s, not Google’s.
