Learn about YouTube Premium trials and promotions

YouTube Premium amplifies your video and music experience with exclusive features, behind-the-scenes experiences, and more. If you’re new to YouTube Premium or YouTube Music Premium, you may be eligible to sign up for a trial membership. Learn more below.

How trials work

  • When you sign up for a trial, you'll enjoy the same membership benefits as a YouTube Premium or YouTube Music Premium member.
  • During signup, you’ll be asked for a payment method to keep on file. You may see an authorization charge appear on your account, which allows us to confirm that your payment method is valid. This charge won’t be processed, and will disappear within 1-14 days.
  • When your trial ends, we’ll automatically renew your membership using the payment method on file. You’ll be charged the current membership price on a recurring monthly basis unless you cancel before the end of the trial.
  • If you cancel your membership during a trial, you’ll lose access to your Premium benefits at the end of your trial period.
Note: If you do not meet the above eligibility criteria, your trial request will fail.
