Google offering three months worth of free YouTube Premium to some UK users

If you’re a Google One user in the UK then you may be able to grab three months access to YouTube Premium right now entirely for free. As reported by 9to5Google, the Mountain View firm are once again offering Google One subscribers an extended free trial of their YouTube Premium (formerly YouTube Red) service. YouTube Premium lets you watch YouTube Originals shows, offers ad-free viewing of YouTube videos and also has bundled-in access to YouTube Music, which replaced Google Play Music recently.

YouTube Premium typically costs £11.99 a month, which means this promo saves Google One subscribers almost £36.

After the three month trial period is up users will be charged the full monthly fee.

And those eligible for the promotion have plenty of time to take advantage of it, with the offer running for over a year.

To see if you’re eligible head to the Google One app on your iOS or Android device and then click on the Benefits section.

If you are you should see a message that says: “Get 3 months of YouTube Premium free.

“Google One members can now get YouTube and YouTube Music ad-free. Activate by 1/31/22, £11.99/month once trial ends.”

It appears the offer isn’t available to all subscribers, with deals sometimes getting served up randomly.

Google One is a subscription service offered by the Mountain View firm that gives members extra cloud storage.

All Google users get 15GB of storage for services such as Gmail and Google Drive for free.

But Google One offers additional storage, with UK users able to get up to 2TB of storage and US users able to get a whopping 30TB.

And that’s not the only benefit to having a Google One plan.

Recently Express.co.uk reported that Google was notifying users about changes coming into effect later this year.

The search engine giant has revealed that Gmail, Google Drive and Google Photos users risk seeing their content deleted unless they follow new rules.

In an e-mail sent out last month Google said: “We are writing to let you know that we recently announced new storage policies for Google Accounts using Gmail, Google Drive (including Google Docs, Sheets, Slides, Drawings, Forms, and Jamboard files) and/or Google Photos that bring us in line with industry practices”.

The change impacts accounts that have not been used for two years or a user exceeds their storage limit for two years.

This new policy comes into effect on June 1 2021. However, Google One members who are within their storage quota will not be impacted by this new inactive policy.
