Premium memberships & travel
It's a paid-for subscription service that essentially allowed people to watch ad-free YouTube videos, among other things. Here's what you need to know about YouTube Premium, including how it works. YouTube Premium is a paid membership, available in certain countries, that gives you an ad-free, feature-rich offline viewing , and enhanced experience across many of Google's video and music services, like YouTube , YouTube Music , YouTube Gaming , and YouTube Kids. At it's core, YouTube Premium is about removing advertisements. Since Google-owned YouTube makes a lot of its money from ads, it can't really remove them without making you pay up. It also said this goes toward helping artists make money. By allowing the viewer to pay, flitting between videos will no longer require waiting around for ads to finish. That applies to anywhere the paid-for account is signed in. So, if you're logging in on a smart television, you'll be able to watch videos instantly, without interruptions.
