With so many streaming services on the market — Netflix, Hulu, Disney+, Spotify, Apple Music, Audible and more — it can be hard to keep up with all the options. YouTube Premium is a paid membership that offers an ad-free and enhanced experience across the Google-owned video and music platforms.
YouTube Premium comes with access to YouTube Music Premium, which includes ad-free listening, a 35 million song catalog and offline music playback. It also comes with picture-in-picture viewing on mobile, meaning you can watch a video while doing other things on your phone, like checking notifications or texting. YouTube Premium also allows you to save videos for offline watching later, which is especially useful for long plane flights or commutes that send you through areas with spotty cell service.
A YouTube Premium subscription removes ads on both the main YouTube app and on videos watched in mobile apps and Roku. That means you’ll see fewer pre-roll and in-video ads, which can be frustrating to viewers. YouTube Premium subscribers also get access to series and unreleased movies from influencers like Lilly Singh, Rooster Teeth and more.
If you aren’t a huge YouTube consumer or already subscribe to a video streaming service, like Netflix, Hulu, Disney+ or Spotify, then the extra features may not be worth it for you. YouTube Premium is only worth it for people who are fans of the platform’s original content, want to avoid ads and would use YouTube Music Premium regularly. YouTube Premium is $7 a month for individuals, but students can get it for just $7 if they verify their student status once a year. يوتيوب بريميوم
