YouTube is reportedly currently running a test for its new subscription tier in Europe, which is a cheaper option compared to its standard subscription tier YouTube Premium. This one is called Premium Lite and it provides an ad-free viewing experience, but without the other features from YouTube Premium.
To elaborate Premium Lite’s functionality, it is a good offer for those who want to enjoy videos on YouTube without ad interruption, but aren’t interested in offline downloads or background playback.
As confirmed by a YouTube spokesperson, Premium Lite’s subscription is priced at €6.99 a month in Europe. YouTube Premium, on the other hand, costs around €11.99/£11.99 per month. Apart from offering ad-free viewing, YouTube Premium provides ad-free YouTube Music listening, background playback, and offline downloads.
