Update 6/13: According to a Google spokeswoman, YouTube is not currently offering anything similar to what is shown in the screenshot, and the company is unsure of the offer’s original source.
Article at first:
Google has decided to reward devoted fans by giving subscribers to YouTube Premium who have been paying for more than six years a free year of subscription.
one user this evening reported receiving a Time to celebrate prompt in YouTube Music for Android after having a YouTube Premium subscription for 2222 days (or precisely 3,199,680 minutes). That equals slightly over six years and one month. We’ve only found one report of this so far, but several claim they’re also getting close to it, complete with an on-screen rain of gifts and confetti. The availability of this deal will be determined at that time.
We appreciate all of your wonderful help. We recently made a little change to your account for you:
Without advertisements, offline, and in the background, YouTube and YouTube Music Free for 12 months. On us, that is!
This is a $119.99 value according to the yearly Premium plan unveiled in January. Your next billing date is changed as a result of the prompt.
The premium YouTube membership would have been initiated by the Redditor in early May 2016, when it first became available internationally after becoming live in the United States in late 2015. The service was then known as YouTube Red, then in June 2018 it changed its name to YouTube Premium.
A monthly subscription to YouTube Premium costs costs $11.99 and includes ad-free and background playback, offline downloads, Music Premium, and early access to some features.
some and raised have an intriguing point to make concerning how the Members since date (see the steps below) does not represent their first Google Play Music subscription. That date does not account for years of prior paid consumption, merely the (very recent) switch to YouTube Music. YouTube is undoubtedly highlighting its Premium service with this campaign, but little forbearance would have been nice.
