Rarely do YouTube videos not begin with an advertisement. For a $9.99 monthly fee YouTube Red members will now be able to stream videos ad-free, save videos and songs to mobile devices and play videos while using other apps.
Members will also receive a Google Play Music subscription free of charge.
Background save will allow users to save videos to their mobile devices to watch while offline. This will be especially useful for long commutes and trips. The number of video and audio files that can be saved is determined by the amount of free space available on the device being used. Videos will remain saved for 30 days. This feature is available only on Android and iOS apps.
For those looking to test the new service, a one-month free trial is available.
