The service provides ad-free access to content across the service, as well as access to premium YouTube Originals programming produced in collaboration with the site's creators, downloading videos and background playback of videos on mobile devices, and access to the YouTube Music music streaming service. The service was originally launched in November as Music Key , offering only advertisement-free streaming of music videos from participating labels on YouTube and Google Play Music. YouTube announced the rebranding of the service as YouTube Premium on May 17, , alongside the return of a separate, YouTube Music subscription service. The service was first unveiled in November as Music Key, serving as a collaboration between YouTube and Google Play Music , and meant to succeed the former's own subscription service. Music Key offered ad-free playback of music videos from participating labels hosted on YouTube, as well as background and offline playback of music videos on mobile devices from within the YouTube app. The service also included access to Google Play Music All Access, which provides ad-free audio streaming of a library of music.
Common troubleshooting steps
1. YouTube is so much better without the ads
Check YouTube Premium availability in your location
Make sure your YouTube Premium membership has not expired. If you recently lost access to YouTube Premium and re-subscribed, it will take a few hours for saved videos to show once you've re-subscribed. If you're watching a YouTube video embedded on a website, make sure you're not blocking YouTube cookies. Sometimes you may see an info card or annotation in a video, which might look like an ad.
Please read the rules before posting. Never give out personal information ; employees will never ask for your login credentials! YouTube is showing ads even though I have premium self. I paid for Google play music ages ago and it came with YouTube red and now premium. I haven't had ads in forever, but I'm logged into my account on my mobile app and I'm seeing ads. Better be gone or I'm cancelling my membership. I found a way for it to fix its self, pause your subscription and then resume it it will take a day but it will fix its self. Was about to turn on some music to sleep and I'm greeted by a fucking horror movie ad.
