Google has announced the launch of YouTube Red; a subscription service that lets you enjoy videos across all of YouTube without ads, while also letting you save videos to watch offline on your phone or tablet and play videos in the background, all for $9.99 a month (Android Subscribers) or $12.99 (iOS Subscribers).
Besides that, Google claims that starting early next year, YouTube Red will get even better with member-only access to new, original shows and movies from some of YouTube’s biggest creators.
Your membership will extend across devices and anywhere you sign into YouTube, including the recently launched Gaming app and a brand new YouTube Music app that will be available soon. And as a special bonus – YouTube Red works with Google Play Music, so subscribe to one and automatically get access to the other.
And don’t worry! The free, ad-supported version of YouTube we all know and love isn’t going anywhere. You’ll still be able to enjoy YouTube, along with the YouTube Kids, Gaming and Music apps free of charge.
According to Google, with YouTube Red, you’ll be able to support the people who make your favorite videos while watching what you want, when you want, on any device you want, uninterrupted.
Viewers in the U.S. can try YouTube Red for free with a one month trial on October 28 and YouTube Music will be coming soon.
