YouTube Premium & music streaming limits

As a YouTube Premium member, you can only stream music-related videos on one device at a time. This limitation can apply to any video on YouTube that's categorized as music, such as a music video or certain videos with music playing in the background. If you're streaming music-related videos and you begin streaming a second music-related video from another device, you'll see an error message on the first device. The second video will continue playing.

We recommend having separate individual YouTube accounts to avoid this issue. If several members of your family would like to join YouTube Premium, you can sign up for a YouTube Premium family plan. All family members included in your family plan will get access to YouTube Premium.
