YouTube has good news and bad news for its users


The vast majority of YouTube users watch YouTube videos for free (and also see ads along the way). But for those who want a premium, ad-free experience, Google’s video platform also offers a paid subscription.

The paid version of YouTube already includes quite a few advantages. And lately, the platform wanted to beef up this paid version with a new advantage: 4K resolution.

Currently, even if you don’t have a YouTube Premium subscription, you can watch videos in 4K, when that resolution is available. However, YouTube ran a test in which the ability to watch 4K videos became exclusive to YouTube Premium subscribers.

This elicited many negative reactions. Eventually, YouTube decided to end the test. The project was therefore abandoned.

The news was confirmed by the Google platform on its Twitter account. “We have completely disabled this experience. Viewers should now be able to access 4K quality resolutions without a Premium subscription”we read in this publication.

That was the good news, announced by YouTube a few days ago. The bad news concerns users of the paid offer, who should be prepared for an increase in the price of this subscription.

An increase in the price of the YouTube Premium family subscription?

It is possible that YouTube wanted to add new advantages reserved for premium subscribers of its platform, in anticipation of a future price increase. Indeed, it seems that it is preparing an increase in the YouTube Premium family subscription.

In any case, this is indicated by many media as well as users who have relayed the information on social networks. According to the TechCrunch site, in several countries, YouTube would have sent e-mails to its Premium subscribers to announce an increase in the price of this subscription. The article mentions the United States, the United Kingdom, Canada and Argentina.

In the USA, the price of the family subscription would go from 17.99 dollars per month to 22.99 dollars per month. For the moment, France is not mentioned. But it looks like YouTube Premium is planning to raise that price globally.

In any case, if the price of the YouTube Premium subscription also increased in France, we should expect an increase in the same proportions. As a reminder, when you subscribe to this subscription, you have the possibility of sharing it with a maximum of 5 members of your family (in the same household).
