How to Add (and Remove) YouTube Premium Family Members
A YouTube Premium subscription can be shared with up to 5 other family members, but requires a slightly more expensive family subscription to add more.
YouTubePremium can be shared by an entire family, with some limitations, and it’s fairly easy to add and remove members from the streaming plan. Whether the cost is shared or just one person pays, it’s nice to be able to squeeze more value out of a subscription by inviting others to join and share the benefits.
YouTube Premium has been around for a while, although it was originally focused on music videos and known as Music Key when it launched in 2014. Google has evolved its subscription services to YouTube Music and YouTube Red, the latter allowing ad-free streaming of videos beyond music and access to YouTube Originals. YouTube Premium replaces YouTube Red and includes YouTube Music, which is still available separately.
Almost every member of a family can find something interesting on YouTube and that is why it is very useful that Google allows sharing a YouTube Premium subscription with up to five other family members. To add a new person to a YouTube Premium plan, the person paying for the plan, known as the family manager, must send an invitation. Before this is possible, however, a YouTube Premium family subscription is required, which costs a bit more than an individual subscription. A user can upgrade by clicking on their profile picture and then Purchases and Membershipsand Get a family plan.
