How to Remove or Hide Ads on YouTube Music

YouTube Music, which can be linked with YouTube for free full music playback, is very convenient and has many users. Even if you only use the free version, you can listen to YouTube Music to your heart's content. However, in the free version of YouTube Music, ads are displayed between songs while they are playing. When an advertisement comes in, the music playback will also stop temporarily, which is annoying. So this time, this article will introduce how to remove or hide ads on YouTube Music. With the methods below, even free users can enjoy YouTube Music without ads.

Remove or Hide Ads on YouTube Music

Part 1: How often and why you see ads

Various advertisements are displayed on YouTube, but when listening to music using the YouTube Music free version, a "pre-roll advertisement" that is displayed mainly between songs will appear. When listening to very long songs (such as at concerts where one song exceeds 30 minutes), there are also occasional "mid-roll ads" that appear during playback. Long advertisements (1 minute, 30 seconds, etc.) can be skipped in 5 seconds.

It goes without saying that since it's free to use, ads also benefit YouTube itself, which is part of YouTube Music's revenue stream for uploading songs. Viewers can also enjoy music for free thanks to advertisements.

Part 2: How to get rid of ads on YouTube Music

There's only one straightforward way to get rid of ads on YouTube Music, get a YouTube Music Premium membership, and the ads will disappear.

If you use YouTube Music all the time, we recommend either the paid YouTube Music Premium or YouTube Premium memberships. Membership gives you the following features:

- Hide ads on all devices.

- You can temporarily save your favorite songs and videos offline.

- background playback

- Change sound quality or picture quality.
