YouTube Premium, the paid service by YouTube that allows its users ad free video viewing and few original shows, is all set to come to India. There will be two versions of the app – an ad supported free version and a premium version with a subscription cost.
The subscription cost of YouTube Premium stands at around $10 per month in USA. The same app costs around $13 per month if your download the app from an iOS app.
YouTube Red was launched in October 2015 to watch ad free video on the platform and some original shows. But this service was rebranded as YouTube Premium by Google. Apart from this, the video platform also launched YouTube Music to compete with other music apps such as Spotify and Apple Music to help users stream music and music videos from the YouTube app.
Interestingly, YouTube Red was a rechristened name for Music Key launched in 2014. Earlier, the music platform by YouTube – YouTube Music – was slated to release in India on May 22.
