A member from resetera first revealed about the YouTube Premium Lite plan.
As per a report from The Verge, YouTube is currently testing the premium lite plan in six countries that are Belgium, Finland, Norway, Denmark, Netherlands, Sweden, and Luxembourg.
Who can choose Premium Lite Plan?
The lite plan is best for those who want to get an ad-free video viewing experience on YouTube but don’t want to get other benefits. For example, the YouTube premium plan offers offline downloading, Free YouTube Music Premium subscription, and background playback of videos. These offers are not available in the lite plan.
If you analyze the price of the Premium lite plan, then it costs 60 percent of the current premium plan price. However, it offers only a quarter of its benefits.
YouTube team has said, currently, the plan is in the testing phase and its price may vary depends on audience feedback.
