Google Offers Free Three-Month Trial of YouTube Red Through July 4

YouTube Red is a paid membership that gives you an enhanced, uninterrupted experience across YouTube, YouTube Music, and YouTube Gaming.

YouTube Red benefits:

  • Ad-free videos: Watch videos without interruptions
  • Save offline: Save videos and songs on your mobile device to watch offline
  • Background play: Keep videos or music playing when using other apps or when your screen’s off
  • Audio mode: Listen to audio only on the YouTube Music app
  • Google Play Music Subscription (when available in your country) is included at no additional cost

Once the free trial is finished, subscribers will cough up $9.99 per month to continue. The YouTube Red trail membership can be cancelled at any time.
