YouTube is now following in the steps of other youth-oriented platforms by offering special discounts to students.
Those who are eligible get to save money on the world’s biggest streaming-platform’s services including YouTube Premium and YouTube Music.
Google initially launched the YouTube Music and YouTube Premium back in May. The company renamed YouTube Red to Premium and Google Play Music to YouTube Music.
Now students can access ad-free videos, our new music streaming service, @YouTubeMusic, and a library of YouTube Originals for only $5.99/month! Introducing the YouTube Premium student plan: https://t.co/JvqQxYQwGI. pic.twitter.com/27iYYamObP

As of now, YouTube Premium usually costs $11.99/month and YouTube Music Premium costs $9.99/month. However, students in the U.S. can now get the servicers for $6.99 and $4.99 respectively.
P.S- YouTube Music Premium subscription gets you ad-free music, the option to listen in the background, and music downloads. A YouTube Premium subscription gets you all of the above, plus ad-free video, the option to play in the background, and video downloads.
We wonder if this will bring in a wave of subscribers to the services or will students stick to the regular YouTube application.
