Is YouTube Premium Worth It? 6 reasons why you should Buy

Free Google Play Music and More at Just Rs.32 or $3 per user

Is YouTube Premium Subscription worth It? What are the benefits? What are the costs? Here we explain everything you need to know about YouTube Premium.

Before we get into why we should pay for YouTube Premium, we need to give you the ultimate trick to save on the subscription and get the most out of it. If you have decided to get YouTube premium, just go for the YouTube Premium Family membership. The Family membership lets you share the subscription among 6 Google Accounts. Which means 6 members can get Ad free YouTube and there can be 6 separate Google Play Music accounts. You can either add family members or your can have a group of 6 close friends and split the subscription cost. Take note that you can only change family groups once every 12 months.

Here’s a quick comparison table on how much does YouTube premium costs in India and in the US.

The 6 Benefits of YouTube Premium Subscription

Ad free YouTube is just so delicious

Delicious? yeah, if YouTube was a Chocolate, those ads in the middle are like peppers mixed in between. Irritatingly spoiling taste at each bite. YouTube without ads, is just pure choco delicacy that melts in the mouth. Seriously? Food Analogy!. Why not?

Lately YouTube has become more annoying with ads at the Start of the video, Middle of the Video, End of the Video and in some cases you can see yellow strips all over the seek bar, just like lines in the middle of a highway.

YouTube premium frees all these shackles and lets anyone enjoy videos as smooth as cutting a cheese bar with a hot knife.

Without ads, there are no more need for pauses, skips, waits and interruptions. Watching YouTube without ads stands out especially when watching videos on big TV screens with FireTV stick or Chromecast. And you no more have to hover your finger on the skip button, especially when watching videos with your family.

Google Play Music is free with YouTube Premium

When you pay for YouTube premium, you don’t have to pay for Google Play Music. That’s just a jackpot. Take one family plan, add 5 of your family members or friends, and each one of you will have your own Google Play Music Subscription for free. How cool is that?!

You get 40 million songs to stream, you can upload 50,000 songs from your computer and stream them from anywhere on any device and personally I have found Google Play Music to be far richer in collections, far smoother in user experience and far more functional than Amazon Prime Music, Apple Music or even Spotify.

Note: If you or any of the 6 members in the family group have an individual Google Play Music Subscription already, it is recommended to cancel that subscription before subscribing to YouTube premium.

YouTube Music Premium is free

YouTube Music is just like Google Play Music, but in this case for videos. You can save playlist of music videos and enjoy them ad free. You have separate app for this and that’s the YouTube Music App.

You can play videos in background with phone locked

Switch between apps, and let the video keep playing in the background. I usually listen to News and Debates on YouTube. With background play, I no longer have to keep my Smartphone Screen glowing all the time. I can just lock my phone and listen to reviews, debates and news just like an audio podcast.

I can send a quick message, have a quick chat, punch someone on Twitter (only on Twitter), Write an email and always switch back to YouTube without any stutter and continue from where I left.

Download Videos offline for Commute

You can download Full HD 1080p videos when you are online and view them offline when you are on your commute or where network reception is poor or WiFi is unavailable. These offline videos are available offline for up to 30 days.

YouTube Originals – Awesome Shows and Movies are free

You get access to full library of YouTube Originals Series and Movies. Here’s the full list of YouTube Original Series and Movies.

Verdict

Just Buy. YouTube Premium is totally worth it. Have peace of mind. Give yourself a gift. Choose YouTube Family Plan, as it maximizes savings.

YouTube Premium – Free Trial – 3 Months

If you are a new user, you can get up to 3 months free trial, of the individual plan. Later you can switch to family membership if you wish.
