Learn about YouTube family plans

Get a YouTube family plan to share a YouTube paid membership with up to 5 other members of your household.

How the family plan works

  • A YouTube family plan allows you to share your YouTube paid membership with up to 5 family members who live in the same household (residential address).
  • As the account holder, or family manager, you'll create a Google family group. You can invite family members to the group to share your YouTube Premium, YouTube Music Premium, or YouTube TV membership with them.
  • As a family member, you can use your own Google Account to access the YouTube paid membership. Your viewing and listening preferences are all your own—you'll continue to see your personal library, subscriptions, and recommendations. These preferences won't be shared across accounts.
  • Sharing your YouTube Premium, YouTube Music Premium, or YouTube TV membership as part of a family group also lets you share other Google services. Learn more about family groups on Google.
Note: Family plans are currently not available in Belarus, Iceland, Israel, Slovenia, South Korea, or Venezuela.
