What You Need To Know About YouTube Red, Music and Premium Services

People has been asking what's the difference between YouTube Red, YouTube Music and YouTube Premium. Well, this is as confusing as any Google service can get. That's the main reason I am writing this article.

Few weeks ago, Google launched YouTube Music and YouTube Premium. They both has almost the same features but Youtube music is a music streaming service just like Google Play music, while YouTube Premium is also a music streaming service with additional ad-free streaming experience.

Google on its own likes giving too many different names for too many services, making them very confusing. Here's all what you need to know about YouTube Music, Youtube Red and YouTube Premium.

YouTube Music

YouTube Music is a competitor to Spotify or Apple Music. Users can sign up, stream music, or watch music videos on YouTube, all within the app. There are two different plans. A free, ad-supported plan, and a $9.99 (AU$11.99, £9.99) plan for those who want background playback, and the ability to download music without ads.

YouTube Red is now YouTube Premium

Remember YouTube Red? It's no more. The ad-free YouTube service is now called YouTube Premium.

What is YouTube Premium?

YouTube Premium on the other hand includes everything you can find in YouTube Music subscription, which includes but not limited to an ad-free YouTube experience and access to YouTube Original content. You also gain the ability to download YouTube videos for offline viewing.

YouTube Premium is priced a little higher than YouTube Music, starting from $11.99 (AU$14.99, £11.99) per month.

Google Play Music

When you sign up for YouTube Music or YouTube Premium, you automatically have access to Google Play Music and all its full features.

Unfortunately, your music library and playlists remain separate in the two services. Hopefully, Google is working toward merging the two and we'll be able to move forward with one solution.
