O Google One, paid cloud storage service, is offering a free gift in Brazil and some other countries: subscribers get three months free of charge YouTube Premium. That way, eligible customers will be able to watch videos without ads on mobile, computer and TV; in addition to downloading them to watch offline on your smartphone.
The promotion appeared to users in Brazil, Italy and Spain, according to reports on twitter. Reader Felipe Avelar warned us that, when opening the YouTube app, Google One subscribers see the warning “Check out YouTube Premium” and a “3 months free” button.
“The three free months of YouTube Premium have been available to Google One subscribers in Brazil since last week,” explains the company in a statement to the Tecnoblog. “Users eligible for the offer will be able to receive a message through different channels (YouTube and Google One app or email) to access the promotion.”
At rules are the same for all countries:
- the free three months of YouTube Premium are available for those who subscribe to Google One by December 31, 2019;
- the offer may be redeemed by January 31, 2020;
- after the trial period, you will be charged $ 20.90 per month if you don’t cancel.
Offer does not apply to those who have tried YouTube Premium
It is worth noting that the offer is not for everyone: if you subscribe or already signed YouTube Premium, YouTube Music Premium, or Google Play Music, you will not be entitled to the three free months. The same goes for those tested one of these services but did not subscribe.
“To access the benefit, you must be a Google One subscriber and meet the eligible promotion requirements (not a YouTube Premium subscriber and have not yet redeemed your free period),” says Google in a statement.
You can check if the offer is available to you on the Google One Benefits tab, the Android app or the web interface. Google also notifies users via email.
Google One starts at $ 6.99 a month on the 100 GB plan, and has options for up to 30 TB of cloud storage. Customers can share the space with up to five family members; one person will not be able to see the files of others. Support via chat, phone or email.
In turn, YouTube Premium removes ads from videos on your computer, TV and mobile. It allows you to download content to watch offline on your smartphone, in addition to listening to the audio in the background. The subscription also guarantees early access to YouTube Originals series.
Google has already made this promotion in the USA in 2018, offering three months of YouTube Premium to One customers. They also received a six month subscription to the newspaper The Washington Post.
Thanks, Felipe Avelar!
