Unexpectedly, effective on or after November 21st, the cost of a YouTube Premium family plan will increase from $17.99 to $22.99 per month (depending on your billing cycle).

Additionally, their current $14.99 monthly payment will raise to $22.99; however, this change won’t take effect until April of the following year, and members will be notified 30 days in advance.

Outside of the US, similar price rises have been reported in the UK, Canada, Argentina, Turkey, and, so far, Japan. For anyone who subscribes through the Apple App Store, the worst bargain is that the monthly fee will rise to $29.99.

There is no need to panic if you have the YouTube Premium basic plan because the cost is at $11.99 right now. By choosing to subscribe annually, you can save some money by paying only $119.99 (which works out to $10 per month). Students that qualify only have to pay $6.99 a month.


With a YouTube Premium subscription, you may watch videos without interruption from commercials, use background play, download and save videos for later offline viewing, and get ad-free access to YouTube Music. As long as all six account owners share the same residential address, the family plan allows up to six YouTube accounts to be linked to the subscription.
