Use a family payment method on Google Play

- Family members can use the family payment method to make purchases on Google Play or in-app purchases.
- The family manager is responsible for any purchases made by their family members using the family payment method.
- The family manager gets an email receipt each time a family member makes a purchase.
- The family manager can turn on purchase approvals to require family members to get their approval to make certain purchases.
