YouTube Premium sees its first major price hike in selected countries. The company directly informs subscribers in an email about its family plan subscription going up by 23%. From November 21, 2022, you’ll have to pay $22.99 each month rather than the good old $17.99 for the Premium. If you subscribe via the App Store, the price jumps to $29.99 per month.

YouTube has not yet hiked the price of Premium for individual accounts, and it still costs $11.99 per month in the US. The family plan that allows up to six accounts to use the same subscription now shows the updated price on YouTube’s website. The email also says that the original YouTube Red family subscribers paying $14.99 per month will also see this $22.99/ month price hike, but not until April 2023.
