Tired of waiting to skip ads in YouTube? Wish you could save YouTube videos and music offline or keep playing when your mobile screen turns off? YouTube Red might be the subscription for you — and it includes a Google Play Music subscription for the same price as Play Music alone.
YouTube Red eliminates some of YouTube’s major annoyances: Ad interruptions, the requirement to be online, and music and videos stopping when you open other apps or your screen turns off on your phone. With your subscription, videos won’t include any ads (whether pre-roll, banner ads, in-video text-overlay ads, or others). You’ll be able to save videos or playlists offline for up to 30 days on YouTube for Android or iOS, and background play will also work only on the Android or iOS mobile app.
The service costs $US9.99 a month and starts October 28 in the US. However, it also includes a Google Play Music subscription (unlimited ad-free music streaming), which costs $US9.99 anyway. So it’s a no-brainer if you’re interested in a Play Music subscription. And if you’re already a Google Play Music subscriber, you’ll get YouTube Red for free (sweet!).
