Here’s how much a YouTube Music subscription costs in the Philippines

MANILA, Philippines – Google Philippines formally launched YouTube Music and YouTube Premium in the country on Thursday, November 14.

YouTube Music – which is free – allows users to stream songs and watch videos of their favorite artists via an app. YouTube Music Premium, meanwhile, lets users listen to the same things even if the app is running in the background, offline and ad-free.

What might just set YouTube Music Premium apart from most streaming platforms is the streaming platform’s wealth of covers, remixes, and live performances that may have never been released officially.

The app also allows users to search for songs even if you only know parts of its lyrics through text or voice search. YouTube Premium and YouTube Music Premium users can also switch seamlessly between listen to a song and watching its music video.

Google Play Music subscribers get the YouTube Music Premium subscription by default. New users can also subscribe and get a month free.

A YouTube Premium subscription, meanwhile, includes a YouTube Music Premium subscription and allows users to watch YouTube videos in the background, sans ads, and even offline.

A YouTube Family Plan allows 5 family members living within the same household to share a plan for much less. Students can also avail of discounted rates.
