How to upgrade to the YouTube Premium family plan

The YouTube Premium family plan costs miserably $ 6 more than a standard user’s subscription, and yet the family plan is useful for 6 family members. So if your family members or even friends want to get YouTube Premium, opting for a family plan is a no-brainer. Not only that, you get a completely ad-free YouTube experience, background playback, YouTube Music, and a Google Play Music subscription as well.

To clear things up, getting a standard YouTube Premium subscription costs you $ 12 / month and getting a the family plan will only cost $ 18 / mo for up to 6 users. With that being said, here’s how you can upgrade to a family plan and add or remove people.

Anyway, you will have to pay a month to start your subscription to the family plan and only then will you get a free month. To update, go to YouTube Premium Family Account Page Y click “Try it free”.

A pop-up window will open and ask you to complete the payment. Make the payment by card, GPay or any other available payment method.

It will show you a slide of all the features that you will get with subscribing to the Family Plan. Click Continue. and finally “Understood“. Your subscription is now active. The key takeaway is that YouTube only charges on a pro-rata basis. If you are upgrading from a standard YouTube Premium subscription to a family plan in the last week of your billing cycle, you will only be charged for the week and not for the entire month.
