YouTube premium does away with advertisements? Not sure if there's a family plan but they will prompt you to try trial during the video.

You've been arrested? Law Society of Singapore can provide referrals.
You want an International School job? School website or http://www.ISS.edu
Your rugrat needs a School? Avoid for profit schools
You need Tax advice? Ask a CPA
You ran away without doing NS? Shame on you!

Look for an alternative to both. They're out there.

Use a free vpn > subscribe to Youtube premium India ( pay in INR ) > S$ 2.3x per month

Use as per normal without the VPN

If you use apple devices when listening to music, I definitely suggest giving Apple Music a go. I experienced the same dilemma a few years ago, but was deciding between Apple Music and Spotify premium because YouTube premium did not exist then. After trying the free trial of each service I finally picked Apple Music because of its user friendly interface as well as its HUGE catalogue of songs- over 60 million, compared to Spotify’s 50. However, only Spotify has podcasts integrated into the app, so if this is important for you, Spotify may be the right choice. But then again, if you are listening on an Apple device, the device will already have the podcast app pre-installed, so there will be virtually no difference between using Spotify and podcasts. My pick? Apple Music for sure.

LOBSTER07, You might be better off buying an English dictionary to learn how to spell. This is not a place for childish, immature texting. Use the whole keyboard so at least people here will "maybe" give you a little face.

Since you’re using an android, Spotify will probably be a better option. They have a ton of curated playlists and podcasts, YouTube music is not as reputable.
