It’s been a while since the introduction of YouTube’s premium ad-free service, YouTube Premium. It gives you a whole new experience of watching videos on this platform by removing ads and offering you access to YouTube Originals. The subscription also allows you to listen to YouTube Music ad-free together with Google Play Music service.
Priced at $11.99 every month, it’s not a dull deal at the end of the day. Because you would get access to two streaming services, YouTube videos without any ads and YouTube Originals. But, if you have a family behind you who also want to access those benefits, you can go for a plan which would share your YouTube Premium service with them.
Just like Spotify or Amazon subscription, you can share the YouTube Premium subscription with your family as well. This family plan which costs $8 every month from your pockets will let you share it with up to 5 family members. It means, if you’d upgrade your current plan to the YouTube family plan, six family members will be able to enjoy similar benefits eventually.
How to share YouTube Premium with family?
Let us now have a look at how you can upgrade your YouTube Premium subscription plan.
Firstly, log into YouTube and navigate to youtube.com/premium.
Now click Manage.
Followed by Manage Membership and then Upgrade.
You will have to click Upgrade once again to confirm.
In another shortcut way, you can log on to youtube.com/premium/family and click Get Family Plan to upgrade.
After you confirm, you will be charged the fee to upgrade to YouTube Premium service.
Now, the next major step would be to invite members of the house to the family group. To add new members, they should be at least 13 years of age and must own a Google account.
To add a new member in the family group, navigate to your paid memberships page and select the action overflow button near the YouTube Premium and choose Family Sharing Settings. You can do this alternatively by logging on to families.google.com.
You will have to click on the plus sign to add a new member. When you add a new member to your family group, they will have to accept the invitation before it expires in 14 days.
You must note that after adding the family members, you will be able to make changes in the group only once in 12 months.
