Formerly it was knows as Youtube Red.The service now is bundled with YouTube Music Premium and also offers some other perks as well.Also includes access to You Tube Originals – exclusive shows.It has been launched since two years.However have not gained much popularity .The relentless sign up pop ups certainly didn’t help. But there are other things to look at even, in favor of subscribing.Here,we will see everything related to Youtube Premium-its pros,cons,ups and down.
What is Youtube Premium?
YouTube is the largest video-sharing platform on the web,provides free content to millions of users. But then So, why is there a premium version and what does it offer?Youtube Premium is a paid You Tube service.It is ad-less service launched in May 18, 2016.
For just a few dollars each month, YouTube Premium removes ads from all videos, allows you to save videos for offline viewing, and also grants you access to YouTube Music Premium and You Tube Originals. It’s the best YouTube experience you can get.
What services it provide ?
- Ad-free streaming
- Revenue for content creators
- Download videos offline
- Background Play
- Youtube music premium
- Youtube Originals.
No ad-breaks on any content on any device logged into your Premium account.Many of us use ad blockers on our PCs, but advertisements are much harder to escape on mobile. With the implementation of double pre-roll and unskipabble ads, Premium’s ad-free experience is pretty much a necessity for anyone that spends a significant amount of time on the platform.Watching your favorite creators on the big screen of your TV when casting or using the smart TV app is also a lot more pleasant without constant interruptions. The experience is truly ad-free too.Also,you get no trailers for YouTube originals or anything of the sort.
For the creators,YouTube Premium has another great advantage which is not mentioned enough: revenue sharing. A Premium subscription supports the YouTubers you love because You Tube shares a portion of the revenue for every view they receive from subscribers. This supposedly also includes demonetized videos too.
Download videos Offline
You can download videos for later offline viewing.
You can listen to long videos, podcasts and also the music with your screen locked.A very helpful feature,we guess!Background play allows videos and music to keep playing in the background, even when you open other apps or turn the screen off on your mobile device.
YouTube Music Premium
Ad-free access to the dedicated music app and its catalog of millions of songs.The access to Premium Music included in your subscription is underrated to say the least. The service has a huge catalog of songs. Even if some weren’t available as song files, I could still listen to the music videos with my screen locked.The variety of genres and artists would please even the most snobby music fans. For them, a Premium subscription could be worth it for the tunes alone. It only costs $2 more per month than Spotify Prremium with additional YouTube perks to boot.
Ad-free Originals and also access to exclusive Premium content.
YouTube Premium costs $12/month, and you can cancel or change your plan at any time. However, YouTube now has a second, more affordable option you can check out called YouTube Music Premium.
For $10/month, you can just subscribe to YouTube Music. But that monthly fee gives you full access to the YouTube Music app, including ad-free music, the ability to listen to music in the background, and the option of downloading your music. It’s essentially YouTube’s version of a Spotify Premium subscription.
That’s good but spending the extra $2 each month for all of that and the additional features for YouTube is a far better value. It makes the most sense to not bother with YouTube Music Premium and just go for the full YouTube Premium package.
However,if you subscribe to YouTube Music but decide you want to upgrade to YouTube Premium later on, you can make that change at any time.
