Google extends free trial for Google Play Music and YouTube Red to 4 months

New, 16 comments

Google has offered pretty generous trials for its Google Play Music / YouTube Red services in the past, including up to 90 days for just $1, but this 4th of July weekend the deal became even sweeter. First spotted by 9to5Google, the free trial for the $9.99 a month unlimited music streaming service and ad-free YouTube experience has expanded to four months for new subscribers.

Getting unlimited streaming music and no ads on YouTube for a third of a year without having to pay anything is really one of the best deals in streaming. Since Google acquired Songza in 2014, the company's music service has offered formidable competition to Spotify and other competitors with topical playlists and decent music discovery. The subscription may even be worth it if you're someone who just doesn't want to see ads on YouTube, so if you've been thinking about it, there's never been a better time to sign up.
