Google Play Music Family plans go live in UK, USA, and more

Google Play Music Family plans are here! They will not go live everywhere at first, but at least some of us will be able to test the feature already. The Family Music plan is up for UK, USA, Australia, Germany, France and Canada and it will let account holders share their preferred music with up to five family members. And it all costs $15 a month. Google Play Music Family was announced earlier this year and it has been a pretty popular and hyped notion for many. The Family plan will work on Android, iOS, and the Web version. When you pay for this service, Google will also give you access to YouTube Red (this feature is only available in the US at the moment). The Play Music app has an already updated changelog in the Play store: Google Play Music family plan allows up to six family members to: Access Google Play Music across Android, iOS and the web Listen on their own accounts at the same time Enjoy personalized experiences Note: The Google Play Music family plan can only be purchased on your Android device. The plan is to bring Google Play Music Family plans to more countries in the near future. Give the app a look below if you are eager to share your music with the family.

YouTube Red goes live today! Watch videos with no more pesky ads!

The age of ad-free videos and music is upon us as YouTube Red goes live starting today! When you open your YouTube app or page today, you will see a new logo for the Red feature and you may get bombarded with some ads prompting you to try it out… by buying it, of course.       The irony of it all is that, in order to escape 15-second pre-roll ads or click to escape banners, you will have to sit through one about YouTube Red anyway. The feature is allowed on any platform where you log in and it requires you to pay $9.99 per month to be ad-free. That’s not all you get for this money though, as you will also get offline caching that lets you view videos offline, plus some exclusive content from popular YouTubers that you will not be able to see elsewhere (at least not legally – lets be honest, we all know how the Internet works already).     You can get a subscription by paying up to Red directly or if you already have a Play Music subscription already available. The price for each feature is the same, and if you buy one sub, you get the other for free. You can also get a 1 month free trial of YouTube Red if you want to be sure about what you are getting before signing up your money for it. You can give it a look at the source link below.   Source: YouTube […]

YouTube Red – the final YouTube experience you ever needed

YouTube Red is finally upon us and a new life without ads has finally become a reality. Well, technically, the service goes live on October 28th, but we already know all the details. When you agree to a $9.99 monthly fee you will never have to see another ad on YouTube again; plus you get other nice perks to go with it.       Why is YouTube Red special?   This feature will stop streaming ads on ALL videos, including offline and playback viewing. Users who agree to this option will no longer see any banners, pre or mid-roll ads or text overlay ads on the videos they see. When it comes to embedded promotions on a channel the situation is different, as Google doesn’t have anything to do with them, meaning you will still see those. This feature will be available everywhere you log into your account to watch videos. This comes along with a new YouTube Music app that is siphoning some nice stuff for the Red.     What is most interesting and helpful about YouTube Red is the fact that it is linked with Play Music. If you pay a monthly Red subscription, you also get unlimited Play Music streaming and if you are already subscribed to Play Music you also get Red for free. This allows you to pay $10 for both apps in their subscription mode, which is a decent deal from Google.   It all starts in the US on October 28th, when new users […]
