Our family is considering moving from Spotify to YouTube Premium. How works the electronic check-in every 30 days to check the address?

Hi Patrick,

What check do you mean?

How the family plan works
  • A YouTube family plan allows you to share your YouTube paid membership with up to 5 other family members—ages 13 and up—living 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 with the same people. Learn more about family groups on Google.

Hi Cathal,
thanks a lot for yoir answer. 

I mean this:

" Household location
Household location requirements
To be eligible to share a YouTube family plan, all family members must live at the same residential address as the family manager. This will be confirmed by electronic check-ins every 30 days." 

 How does this 'electronic check-in' work in detail? 

Thanks a lot!

Hi, I still don't understand how this electronic check in works.  Where is the check in part?  Do I have to click on a link every 30 days?

Also, how does this work for kids over 13?  They won't have any payment info on their device so I don't think they would even have an address tied to their account/device.
