Need to know
• YouTube rolled out student plans in India
• YouTube Music costs ₹59/month, YouTube Premium is ₹79/month
• All students from accredited colleges are eligible

YouTube Premium and YouTube Music have made their appearance earlier this year, and Google decided to roll out a student plan for the the Premium featured one, just before the summer break. College students can subscribe to YouTube Music for just ₹59 a month ($0.85) and YouTube Premium for just ₹79 a month ($1.15).

Making a revision, the regular YouTube Music subscription costs ₹99 ($1.45), with YouTube Premium at ₹129 ($1.85). YouTube Music gives you ad-free access to YouTube’s music catalog, along with background play. YouTube Premium has the same benefits, but you also get ad-free playback on all YouTube videos, as well as access to YouTube Originals and background playback for videos. Considering the minor difference in cost, you’re better off subscribing to YouTube Premium.

YouTube says that the student plan is available to “full-time students from accredited colleges or universities” in India, with eligible students able to subscribe for up to four years.

If you’re already an existing subscriber to YouTube Music or YouTube Premium, you’ll first have to let the current billing cycle run out before you can register for the student membership. Interested? Sign up for the YouTube Premium student plan and the YouTube Music student plan.
