A YouTube Premium family plan now costs $22.99 per month after a price increase, as reported by 9to5Google. The family tier offers benefits such as ad-free viewing and background playback for you and up to five other people, and it now costs $5 more per month.
The price change is already in effect for new subscribers, which means you can no longer sign up for the previous price of $17.99. For current subscribers, “This change will take place during your next billing cycle beginning on or after November 21, 2022,” YouTube said in an email shared by 9to5Google. However, as a former Google Play Music subscriber, if you had a grandfather at a lower price, you’ll pay that lower rate until your April billing date, according to an email sent to a roadside staff member.
Google did not immediately respond to a request for comment. The cost of an individual YouTube Premium subscription remains unchanged at $11.99 per month.
