Youtube Music Premium, Limitless Music
YouTube Music Premium is the cheapest subscription offered by YouTube, at $9.99 per month per user or $14.99/month for a family with up to 6 members. It allows you to access a catalog of music without ads resulting from agreements between Google and the copyright holders, as well as YouTube’s large catalog of music including concerts, covers, and all kinds of remixes on the Google’s owned website.
Like its rivals Deezer, Spotify and Apple Music, YouTube Music is able to automatically generate playlists based on certain topics, or suggest songs and artists to discover according to the user’s mood.
Another advantage over the classic YouTube application, YouTube Music Premium allows you to play music in the background and download songs to listen to offline.
Youtube Premium, Exclusive Content & Ad-free
Formerly known as YouTube Red, YouTube Premium is a premium subscription that covers every aspect of the video service. It is sold at 11.99$ per month (17.99$ for families).
This subscription includes YouTube Music Premium, and adds the playback of commercial-free video on YouTube (from the classic application or the browser), the downloading of video from the classic application and access to exclusive original content produced by YouTube.
- Ad-free videos: Watch all Youtube videos without being uninterrupted by ads.
- Download videos on your PC or Mobile that you can watch offline•

YouTube Premium vs YouTube Music Premium, WHICH SUBSCRIPTION TO CHOOSE?
The choice of subscription will of course depend on the subscription and the usage you make of YouTube. If you use YouTube exclusively to listen to music, and nothing else, the YouTube Music Premium subscription will be enough and will allow you to use the dedicated application that promotes music playback.
On the other hand, if you regularly use YouTube to watch video content, like the one on our channel, the YouTube Premium subscription appears much more interesting. For an extra 2 euros per month, you can get rid of YouTube ads for good. Downloading video and streaming it in the background is a real bonus. If you want to choose between the two, we recommend YouTube Premium because of its content-to-price balance.
