Part 1: How Much is YouTube Music?

YouTube Music currently offers two services - YouTube Free and YouTube Premium. YouTube Free is an ad-supported version, which means that not only will you be distracted by ads, but you won't be able to download your favorite music from YouTube Music. YouTube Premium is the ad-free version of YouTube Music. In other words, when you become a YouTube Premium subscriber, you will have the right to reject ads and download your favorite songs on YouTube Music for offline playback.

Of course, this all comes at a price, and YouTube Music offers 3 subscription options. You can choose to pay $10.99 per month or pay $16.99 per month for the home version to become a YouTube Music Premium subscriber. If you want to download your favorite videos from YouTube in addition to downloading YouTube Music, you can choose to pay $11.9 per month, $119.9 per year or every Pay $22.99 a month for Home Edition to become a YouTube Premium subscriber.
