How to Setup YouTube Premium Family Plan

If more than one person in your circle wants to use YouTube Premium, YouTube Premium Family Plan is a great option. While the premium costs $12 per account, the Family plan for six people only costs $18. So YouTube Premium costs just $3 per account in Family plan. Here’s how to set up YouTube Premium Family Plan and maintain a family group. So let’s begin.

How YouTube Premium Family Plan Works
Before subscribing to the Family plan, let me give a glimpse of how the Family Plan works. First, you have to purchase or upgrade to the YouTube Premium Family Plan from one of the 6 YouTube accounts. This will be the main account and only that account owner will be able to manage the subscription. Then you have to add the remaining 5 accounts to the Google Family Group. Once added, all the people in your family group will get access to YouTube Premium.

How to Setup YouTube Premium Family Plan
You can subscribe to YouTube Premium from both the YouTube website on your desktop or even the YouTube app on your phone. We got both of them covered. Let’s start with the desktop web.

FAQs
1. Can you add anyone to your Family Group?

Yes, you can add anyone to your Family group. They cannot be in any other YouTube Family plan though. Everyone can have only one family group and each group can entertain up to six accounts. Also, they have to accept your invitation to join the YouTube family group plan.

2. Unable to add people to the Google Family Group?

If a user leaves another Family Group, then you cannot add that user for the next 14 days.

3. Can I upgrade from the standard YouTube Premium Plan to YouTube Premium Family Plan?

Yes, you can upgrade from YouTube Premium to the YouTube Premium Family plan. Follow the same steps as above. However, you won’t get the first month free. But, you don’t have to pay the full Family Plan price either. Instead, you pay the upgrade cost. For example, if your YouTube Premium subscription ends in one week, YouTube will only charge the upgrade cost for that week. They follow a pro-rata basis.

Sharing YouTube With Family
Along with sharing YouTube Premium, you get a few more advantages with your Family Group. All your family members can share a calendar on Google Calendar, notes on Google Keep, etc. With the premium plan, everyone in the group gets to watch ad-free videos, access YouTube Music, and download videos from YouTube.
