If you subscribe to Google Fi’s Unlimited Plus plan, you can now enjoy an added bonus in addition to unlimited data: a year of free YouTube Premium.
Starting today, Patrick Seybold, Global PR Lead for New and Google Stadia, AR and Project Starline, told the Verge in an email.
better? If you choose a family plan, you don’t have to share the service with others, since each person gets their own subscription to YouTube Premium.
“The growing number of wireless consumers choosing unlimited plans is driving increased demand for media, gaming and other high-bandwidth applications on the move,” Seybold said in an email. “Now we offer a simple, single Fi subscription that provides connectivity, cloud storage, and entertainment for the entire home.”
Of course, if you and I want to call it that: Google Fi’s Unlimited Plus plan is the most Expensive, ranging from $65 a month for one person or $40 a month for a family of up to four to six people. However, a free year of YouTube Premium (which bundles YouTube Music Premium with access to YouTube Kids, offline downloads and listening, and more) might balance things out.
This is just one of many new features Google seems to have been rolling out perks lately to entice people to buy their services and products. Last year, for example, the company announced that Google Fi subscribers would get $5 off a month when they purchased a then-new Pixel Pass subscription.
In some ways, Pixel Pass is similar to Apple’s iPhone Upgrade Program and Apple One service bundles. For example, subscribers can buy a Pixel phone in monthly installments and get upgrades after two years. They also get free access to YouTube Premium, 200GB of Google One cloud storage, Google Play Pass, YouTube Music Premium, and more.
