YouTube Premium

YouTube Premium

So after trying YouTube Premium for almost a month, I have my final verdict. The only real benefit is where you can play stuff in the background on phones, but you can do that with other services such as SoundCloud or Spotify so I don’t get the point in that. The other so called, “benefit” they claimed was exclusive shows but the only one which was remotely interesting was Vsauce’s Mind Field, the rest are cringeworthy at best and I’m surprised why people are even paying for YouTube Premium. “Is there anything else!?”, you scream at me in the street, scaring my dog. No ads, that’s the only other thing, which you can get for free with AdBlock. Final verdict is that YouTube Premium is a waste of time and money, if YouTube added more features, maybe it would be worth it. As it currently stands, just no. Don’t waste your money.

Trying YouTube Premium

So, I don’t have much to do with my life so I decided to try YouTube Premium for a month since it’s free and to see if it’s actually worth it. I will be studying how different it is from regular YouTube and if I like any of the features. After the month is over and I’ve lost the “benefits” I will be making another blog post about how the experience was different and I will be either recommending it or not recommending it based on my experience.
