Moving From One YouTube Family Plan to Another – All You Need to Know
Are you a member of YouTube’s Family Plan, but looking to switch to another plan? Here’s what you need to know about moving within the Family Plan while your current option is still active.
What is the Family Plan?
The Family Plan is a subscription option offered by YouTube that allows up to six people to share one account while each person still gets their own individual experience. You can also share your Google Play Music, YouTube Music and YouTube Premium services with your family.
Steps to Transfer From an Active Plan
If you’re looking to switch plans you can easily do so. Here’s what you need to do:
- Sign out of the current plan: The first step is to sign out of the current plan. To do this, go to the Linked Accounts page in the Menu and click on “Sign out of family“.
- Create a new plan: Once the current plan is signed out, you can then create a new account for the new plan. This can be done through your Google account.
- Invite family members: Once the new plan is set up, you can then invite your family members to join the new plan. You can do this by simply sending out an invite link that they can accept.
Moving to another family plan while the current plan is active is easy to do. All you need to do is sign out of the current plan, create a new one, and invite your family members to join the new plan. Once this is complete, you can enjoy your new plan with your family!
1. How can I initiate a move from one family plan to another on YouTube?
To initiate a move from one family plan to another on YouTube, you’ll need to transfer the subscription ownership to another YouTube account. To do this, go to your Account page and toggle the Family setting option to “Grant access to Family”. Then enter the new owner’s Google account credentials to transfer the subscription ownership. Once the transfer is complete, the new owner will have access to your subscriptions.
4. What precautions should I take when moving from one family plan to another on YouTube?
To ensure that data, subscriptions, and settings are transferred correctly when moving from one family plan to another, be sure to follow the instructions provided by YouTube. First, you will need to be logged in to your new family plan and select the ‘switch’ button. YouTube will then provide instructions on how to move your account information. Make sure to follow the instructions closely and take note of any warning messages given. You should also make sure to review the additional pricing information and terms of service associated with your new family plan, as they may differ from your previous one. Last but not least, do not forget to inform other members of your family plan of the change.
3. Can I still access my account data after moving to a new family plan on YouTube?
Yes, you can still access your account data after moving to a new family plan on YouTube. Your account data and settings will stay the same, so you can log into your account as you normally would. However, your account will switch to the new family plan’s settings, including parental controls, which may limit your access to certain features of YouTube.
2. What happens to my data if I move from one family plan to another on YouTube?
When you move from one family plan to another on YouTube, any private or restricted data associated with your previous family plan will be deleted and you will no longer have access to it. However, if you share content or YouTube videos among the members of the different family plans, those items will still be accessible to all members, regardless of their family plan.
