Google is giving away one year of YouTube Premium for free to Fi Unlimited Plus subscribers

If you're subscribed to Google Fi's Unlimited Plus plan, you can now enjoy an added benefit in addition to unlimited data: a free year of YouTube Premium.

Starting today, new and existing members enrolled in Google Fi's Premium plan won't have to pay the $119.99 annual fee for one year of the increasingly popular service, explains Patrick Siebold, Google's global PR lead for Stadia, AR and Project Starline . The Verge in an email.

Even better? If you opt for the family plan, you won't need to share the service with others, as each person will get their own YouTube Premium subscription.

"Wireless consumers are increasingly choosing unlimited plans to satisfy a growing appetite for media, games and other high-bandwidth applications," Sebold claims in the email. "Now, we're offering a simple, single subscription to Fi that provides connectivity, cloud storage and entertainment for the whole family."

There's of course a slight "catch," if you want to call it that: Google Fi's Unlimited Plus plan is the most expensive at $65/month for a single person or $40/month for a family of four to six. From . Yet a free year of YouTube Premium, which comes bundled with access to YouTube Music Premium and YouTube Kids, offline downloads and listening, and more, could potentially balance things out.

It seems to be one of the many new perks Google has been rolling out lately to entice people to buy its services and products. Last year, for example, the company announced that Google Fi customers could get $5 off their monthly plan by purchasing a then-new Pixel Pass subscription.

In some ways, Pixel Pass is similar to Apple's iPhone upgrade program and Apple One bundle of services. Members can pay for their Pixel phone in monthly installments and get an upgrade after two years, for example. They can get YouTube Premium, 200GB of Google One cloud storage, Google Play Pass, YouTube Music Premium and more for free.
