What To Know When Canceling Your YouTube Music Premium Subscription
YouTube Music Premium is a popular music streaming platform thanks to its many features, including auto-generated playlists, an advanced music recommendation algorithm, and more, but if you no longer wish to pay for these features, you can cancel your subscription. However, before you do, there are a few important points you should know.
When canceling, you can stop your paid subscription, but you can’t cancel YouTube Music completely. Once you’re no longer paying for premium features, you will still have access to YouTube Music, but you will have to listen to ads to access your music. If you want to delete the free account permanently, you will have to delete your corresponding YouTube account, which is an inconvenience if you enjoy streaming videos on the platform.
It’s important to note that once you’re no longer paying for the premium subscription, you don’t have to access YouTube Music if you don’t want to, so unless there is a good reason to delete the account, simply canceling the paid service should suffice.
Additionally, the platform won’t issue you a refund for your subscription unless there is a service issue within the billing period that you’re requesting the refund. Google’s refund policy allows you to cancel at any time, and once you do, it will automatically stop the payment auto-renewal, and you will not receive any further charges.
You will have access to all of your Premium benefits until the end of the billing cycle, at which time it will automatically switch to the free membership tier. For more information, click here.
