Start your favorite podcast on the subway during your morning commute, switch to the web on your laptop as you take a break at work, and end your day by watching on your smart TV at home. Don’t miss a moment of your favorite content, regardless of the devices you move between.
To help you keep track of all the awesomeness YouTube Premium has to offer, we've rolled out badges that showcase your achievements on the platform for members 18 years and older. Located on the Your Premium benefits page, it's like a trophy cabinet just for you, highlighting your Premium milestones and how you've embraced all those exclusive features.
With YouTube Premium, we're on a mission to keep the fun going with new features and exclusive benefits that help you dive deeper into the content you love across all of YouTube. Stay tuned, because there's more exciting stuff coming your way!
