In a bid to establish a strong foothold in the online content-streaming segment against its competitors like Netflix and Spotify, Google has offered a three-month free trial of YouTube Premium to students in the US.

The deal essentially works by having students sign up for the $6.99 per month plan which also includes YouTube Premium Music, that will allow users to use the services for free for three months.

“Attention: Students, for a limited time, new members can enjoy three months of the #YouTubeMusic Premium or @YouTubePremium student plan in select territories, on us. Let us know what you’re playing to get #BacktoSchool,” YouTube Music announced on Thursday.
