YouTube Premium Subscription Costs Rising in These Select Contries

Published

on


YouTube Premium customers will now pay more in some countries, as per the announcement by the company. Users in Europe, Asia-Pacific, and South America will now experience a corresponding rise compared to those in the US who were first affected by the move. It was anticipated that Google would eventually expand its YouTube premium pricing to other regions after announcing a hike in July for US customers. Germany, Poland, Argentina, Australia, Austria, Chile, and Turkey will see an increase in price starting on November 1st for YouTube premium. Predictably, YouTube premium and YouTube music premium plans for individuals, families, and students are affected by this.

It is notable that this is the first time that the price of a YouTube premium individual has increased in Australia. Earlier, in Australia, the president was around $16.99. Remarkably, the corporation states that customers at reduced cost are limited to doing so for an extra 3 months; maybe they want to raise the cost of the premium subscription in every area. During the subsequent building cycle, those who currently have a YouTube premium subscription will begin to see the new cost. This information was obtained through email, and YouTube stated that serious consideration went into their choice. However, the pricing was altered in order to maintain Premium’s improvements and to help artists and creators who post their videos on YouTube.

Google’s Search Engine Deals with Samsung, Apple: A Monopoly in the Making?

Along with the launch of new app features, YouTube is currently prohibiting ad blockers globally. Aside from allowing offline downloads,  YouTube Premium also brings in audio-only video playback. One can also co-watch through Google Meet, test features in advance, and enjoy 1080p premium streaming quality. Always remember that downloading YouTube Premium directly from the website is less expensive than doing it through the iOS app store.

Samsung Messages App Crashing! Here’s How to Fix It

Published

By


Samsung users are facing an inconvenient crashing issue occurring on their native Messages app. Now Samsung is announcing the fix has arrived to avoid the app crashing issue. Let’s take a closer look at the constantly crashing issue and a new fix. 

The Galaxy users are claiming that, in the past 12 hours, their native Message application has been constantly crashing, which is quite irritating. A reason behind the fuss appears in a recent update to the Google Meet app, which conflicts with Samsung’s Messages app. We’re not sure why, but uninstalling or disabling Meet will stop messages from crashing.

However, recently on Reddit and Samsung’s official forums, users have claimed constant crashes for the Samsung Messages app. There seems to be a crashing bug while trying to enter conversations within a health app. Force-closing the app, clearing the cache, restarting the phone, and even entering the phone in Safe Mode don’t fix the issue. 

A moderator in Samsung’s forums confirmed this temporary workaround and also said that “Samsung is aware of the concern and is working towards resolving the matter.”

Finally, regarding this issue, Samsung has officially informed its users that this unwanted issue is about to settle down since Google has issued an update for the Google Meet app, which will stop Samsung’s Messages app from crashing continuously. 

If you are also going through inconvenient crashing issues, you can easily settle them by downloading the latest Google Meet update available in the Google Play Store. It will fix the crashing issues.
