In this world of technology, Google has become at the forefront of digital services, offering many products to cater to our online needs. Among the services, Google One is great for unlimited cloud storage, and YouTube Premium is best for enjoying ad-free video streaming.
As they become more popular, there are rumors about a bundle combining both services. But is YouTube Premium included with Google One?
Follow this post to know for sure.
Does Google One Include YouTube Premium?
No, there isn’t any Google One premium package that includes a YouTube Premium subscription. But there was an extended 3-month free trial on YouTube Premium with the Google One package for a limited time. However, the offer expired in the US on January 31, 2022.
However, there are two premium services of Google; Google Fi and the Pixel Pass, which includes both Google One and YouTube Premium services. I’ve briefly discussed both of these services in the following section. Read along as it might interest you.
Google One is the premium storage version of Google, where you can store and access your files, photos, and videos. You get huge storage space with a Google One membership, including other benefits like access to Google experts or sharing storage with up to 5 family members.
On the other hand, YouTube Premium is a premium service specifically for YouTube.
You get ad-free videos, offline downloads, background video playback, and YouTube Music if you buy a YouTube premium subscription.
However, you don’t get YouTube Premium access if you buy a Google One plan. And if you buy YouTube Premium, you don’t get Google One storage either. But sometimes, Google gives you an extended free trial on YouTube Premium with a Google One subscription plan for promotion.
Where Can You Get Both Google One & YouTube Premium?
Though you don’t get Google One if you buy YouTube Premium, some services include both subscriptions. If you buy the Google Fi Unlimited Plus package or the Pixel Pass, you get one year of YouTube Premium and 100 GB of Google One.
Google Fi is a virtual network operator (MVNO) service for your mobile that gives you calls, texts, and unlimited data on over 200+ destinations. It has three packages available at this moment:
- Simply Unlimited- $50 + taxes & fees/month per person.
- Unlimited Plus- $65 + taxes & fees/month per person.
- Flexible -$20 + taxes & fees/month per person.
Only the Unlimited Plus package comes with one year of YouTube Premium in the United States and 100 GB of Google One. But the Simply Unlimited and Flexible packages don’t include Google One & YouTube Premium.
Another Google service that provides both Google One & YouTube Premium is the Pixel Pass. Pixel Pass is a subscription service with all the necessary Google premium services, including a new Pixel phone.
With Pixel Pass, you get:
- A Pixel phone every two years.
- 200 GB Google One storage.
- YouTube and YouTube Music Premium.
- Google Play Pass.
Unlike the Google Fi subscription, you will get 200 GB of Google One storage and YouTube Premium if you buy any Pixel Pass subscriptions.
Google Fi and Pixel Pass are the services where you can get both Google One and YouTube Premium in one place. However, I recommend you get the Pixel Pass because you will get an actual device in this service.
What is the Google One YouTube Premium family plan?
There is no such thing as Google One YouTube Premium family plan. Google One family plan and the YouTube Premium family plan are two separate subscription plans of Google One, and YouTube Premium made for your family members. You can share your account with up to 5 people in the same region on both plans.
Is YouTube Premium free with Google One?
No, YouTube Premium isn’t free with Google One. But you can enjoy a YouTube premium trial for 3 months instead of one if your region permits. Now (until 31st August 2023), this offer is available only in the UK.
Can I get YouTube Premium for free?
No, you can only get one month of YouTube Premium free trial per Google account. There isn’t any way to make YouTube Premium free for a lifetime.
Long story short, you won’t get YouTube Premium if you buy Google One or vice versa. But if you buy the Google Fi Unlimited Plus package or any Google Pixel Pass, you can enjoy these two Google services together.
But you should get a Pixel Pass because it will give you a new Pixel phone every two years.
