A YouTube Premium subscription runs $12 per month. 5 people will pay $60 per month for this service. However, they only need to spend $30 per month if they set up a YouTube family plan. What is the YouTube family plan? This post introduces it to you.

What Is YouTube Family?

Have you ever subscribed to YouTube Premium for free ads? If you set up a YouTube family plan, you can share this paid membership with 5 family members who live under one roof.

Apart from YouTube Premium, you can also share other memberships like YouTube Music Premium, or YouTube TV memberships, and even Google services.

Tip: Do you need a YouTube downloader? If yes, MiniTool uTube Downloader is a good choice.

However, note that there is no need to buy that YouTube family plan if you are a member of the Google Family Group now. Because some features of the YouTube family plan overlap with Google Family Group.

How Does the YouTube Family Plan Work?

Family Manager

When you purchase the YouTube family service and create a YouTube family group, you will become the family manager – the account holder. However, there are some requirements for being a family manager:

  1. Be at least 18 years old (or the appropriate age in your country/region).
  2. Have a Google account.
  3. Live in a country/region where YouTube Premium or YouTube Music Premium is available.
  4. Not belong to another family group.
  5. Register without using a G Suite account.

Then, you can invite family members to the group to share your YouTube paid membership with them. Certainly, you have the right to remove the invited family members.

Family Member

If you were invited to the YouTube family group and have set up a Google account, you will become a YouTube family member. However, there are also some requirements for being a family member:

  1. Have a Google account.
  2. Live under the same roof as the family manager.
  3. Not belong to another family group.

As a YouTube family member, your privacy will not be exposed to other family members and your viewing and listening preferences are still your own.

Note: Family members can only change family groups once every 12 months.
