Apple generously gives new Apple Music subscribers a three-month free trial before demanding its monthly fee, and now Google is beating it.

For a limited time, the company is offering four months of free access to Play Music and YouTube Red for new customers.

Apple Music shares a lot in common with Google Play Music. Both services cost the same. Both offer the same family plan. Both have similar catalogs. And both support Android and iOS. Apple Music does have better exclusives, but Play Music comes with YouTube Red.

Now you’ll have more time to evaluate which option is best for you. New customers signing up to Play Music and YouTube Red can use the services — without limits — for four months without handing over a penny.

After that, an individual subscription is priced at $9.99, but you can cancel at any time during the trial if you’d rather not pay.

The trial is available to new customers only, so you can’t take advantage of it if you’re already a subscriber. However, if you’re a former customer who’s cancelled their subscription, you should be able to enjoy it, according to Phandroid.

We don’t know how long this promotion will last, so grab it while you can.
