What is the real cost of YouTube Premium in India? What about the benefits?
YouTube Premium, in my opinion, is a better option than some of the other audio streaming apps in the market just because of the benefits a user gets. Users can not only use YouTube Music app for free, but also watch ad-free videos on YouTube app.
YouTube Music app allows you to download songs, watch videos, offer lyrics and other features. One essentially gets unlimited, ad-free access to over 80 million official songs and other content. It even supports Picture-in-Picture (PiP) mode, so one will be able to watch content on YouTube even after closing the app or doing other things on the phone. The price of YouTube Premium subscription is Rs 129 per month in India.
