If you’re on the YouTube Premium Family Plan, you should have received an email.

This will detail how much your monthly costs will increase by.

In the US, bills are increasing by $5 per month.

That’s an increase from $17.99 per month to $22.99 per month.

However, there is no change in the pricing for single users ($11.99) and students ($6.99).

For Brits, the price increase is weaker – only increasing by £2 per month.

It goes from £17.99 to £19.99 per month.

Prices are also rising in Canada, Argentina, Turkey, Japan, Indonesia and Brazil.

The price increase is effective from November 21, and Google should give you a timely warning.

Remember: the main YouTube app is still free – the price change only affects premium subscriptions.

What is YouTube Premium?

YouTube Premium is a special paid version of the video streaming app.

It has many advantages, but the main one is that you can watch YouTube without being interrupted by ads.

“YouTube Premium lets you watch millions of videos uninterrupted by ads before and during a video, including video overlay ads,” Google said.

“You will also not see third-party banner ads and search ads.”

It also gives you the option to download YouTube videos for offline viewing.

You can also play videos on your smartphone in the background (or with picture-in-picture) while using other apps.

You can access YouTube Music Premium, which is Google’s rival to Spotify and Apple Music.

Plus, you can watch YouTube Originals as soon as they’re released, at no additional cost.

With the YouTube Premium Family Plan, five people in a family can share a single subscription at a higher price.

But it’s still cheaper than having multiple family members buy their own individual subscriptions.
