If you’re a YouTube Premium or YouTube Music Premium member, you may be interested in adding family members to your membership. With a family plan, you can share your membership with up to 5 other members in your household. Here’s how to do it:

Before you start, keep in mind that whoever sets up the family plan will be the family manager. This person will be the only one who can purchase a family plan or make membership decisions for the family. The family manager must be 18 years or older, while the 5 other members of the household must be 13 years or older and live at the same residential address as the family manager. Members can only change family groups once every 12 months.

If you already have a family plan with another YouTube or Google product, such as YouTube TV, that’s the same family group you’ll have for YouTube Premium. If not, you’ll need to set up a family plan by visiting and clicking the family plan link, then clicking “Try it free.”

If you already have a Premium membership on your own and want to upgrade to a family plan, visit and click “Manage memberships,” then select “Upgrade” next to “Family memberships.”

Once you’ve set up a family plan, you can perform a number of other tasks as the family manager, including adding and removing family members. Just visit the Memberships page and click “Manage memberships,” then “Edit” next to “Family sharing settings.”

If you need more information on what you can do as a family manager or member, check out the Help Center article linked in the description of the video. And if you need help at any time, contact the membership support team, also linked in the description.

With a family plan, you can share the benefits of YouTube Premium or YouTube Music Premium with your loved ones. Give it a try!
