A YouTube Premium family plan now costs $22.99 per month after a price increase, as reported by 9to5Google. The family tier offers benefits such as ad-free viewing and background playback for you and up to five other people, and it now costs $5 more per month.

The price change is already in effect for new subscribers, which means you can no longer sign up for the previous price of $17.99. For current subscribers, “This change will take place during your next billing cycle beginning on or after November 21, 2022,” YouTube said in an email shared by 9to5Google. However, if as a former Google Play Music subscriber you had a grandfather at a lower price, you’ll pay that lower rate until your April billing date, according to an email sent to a roadside staff member.

Google did not immediately respond to a request for comment. The cost of an individual YouTube Premium subscription remains unchanged at $11.99 per month.
