YouTube recently announced its brand new subscription feature called YouTube Red. YouTube Red is basically the same old YouTube, but YouTube Red has been loaded with lots of cool new feature that most of us always wanted with YouTube. Please keep in mind, that YouTube Red is a paid feature and comes with a mandatory monthly subscription fee.
YouTube has always been my personal go to place for entertainment, music, movies and other online content. I follow lots of other fellow YouTubers, who constantly provide high quality content related to their niche. Since the early days of YouTube, the company has come a long way and has been able to provide the users with lots of cool new features.
YouTube Red is one of the biggest changes that Google has brought to the table. With the release of this service, YouTube promises to provide better user experience for its users and also for the content creators.
In this article we will look into 5 best YouTube Red Features that we love.
5 YouTube Red Features You Will Love
1. YouTube Red is Ad-Free.
This is the first and the best feature of YouTube Red, at least for the users. You will now be able to watch all of your favorite videos and shows without having to skip or face any ads.
YouTube has always been concerned with the user experience. Google generates most of its income from advertising and it has until now done a really good job in maintaining balance between ads and the experience.
With the introduction of YouTube Red, gone are the days where you were required to wait 5 seconds to Skip and AD or in some cases sit through the whole ad.
By paying $10 a month you can enjoy ad-free YouTube. So what about YouTubers who make money from YouTube Ads?? Well, Google claims that this will also help them make more money, but that’s yet to see.
2. Minimize The YouTube App(while listening to the audio)
You must have tried minimizing the YouTube app but without any luck, the video just pauses. YouTube Red finally brings that function to YouTube. With YouTube Red, every time you press the home button to minimize the app, you will still be able to listen the audio from the video.
3. Offline Download
Red allows its users to download the video and watch them later offline. If you want to watch any good YouTube videos, you can simply download the video and watch them offline later.
4. YouTube Music
YouTube Music is another huge feature Google has brought to the table. YouTube music might be another competitor to Spotify, Pandora, Apple Music(according to Google). Personally, they have a long way to go when it comes to provide music to its audience.
When you search for music artists or songs in YouTube Music, the app strips down the search results to only the ones that are closely related to the artist or music. This means you will not see any random music videos.
5. Exclusive Content From YouTubers(YouTube Red Originals)
Exclusive content from your Favorite YouTubers will only be provided to the subscribers of YouTube Red. Some of the on-board content creators are :
- Paul Logan
- Prank Academy
- Rooster Teeth
And Much More.
If you are in a dilemma as to whether or not to get the subscription, I would say it is really a good investment.
