      They are onto me about me paying Indian currency on an Aussie account… Hopefully they don't block my account. Jumped on chat to get the link 😬

          Jumped off chat, no luck for Indian currency VPN paying users. If you are paying in AUD you'll be eligible no issues. Tried my luck trying to get a free coupon but no love… Glad everyone else has been successful… I still have an older model sitting in the cupboard from the free Spotify ones lol

      As many ozb's have said in the past, they will be throwing these things at your door step like phone books in the not so distant future! Looks like that day is here! The data they gather is money in the bank. Big Brother is watching! HA enjoy the "free" stuff!!!

      But I am a true ozb, so kind of upset i'm not eligible…. Oh the conflict!

        Considering these have a hard killswitch for the microphone; they can be just used for casting music if you so wish.

        • +7 votes

          Still the algorithm is profiling data from the music you choose. People who like these songs have watched the voice on tv, often live in parents basement, enjoy pc games and sex toys and have been known to and troll ozbargan website.

            They've nailed me.

        •  

          I wouldn't trust their "hard kill switch". I got the free Spotify one for my mum as a bday pressy. Took it around & demoed it. Didn't have Spotify setup so started free YouTube music. Damn thing wouldnt respond stop playing commands & kept restarting play. Got it to stop after rerunning the start then stop commands.

          Didn't want happening again so turned mic off. Everytime we would chat near it it would play a "microphone is disabled, please reactive to continue" message.
          Throw in Google's history like when google maps cars "accidentally" accessed & took all shared documents from unsecured wifis.
          Or deleting your history only deletes it from your view & not their servers. And when you turn airplane mode on on android, instead of the 30ish data points it collects every few seconds, it collects over 100 just to make sure they know everything you are doing at that point.

      Worked for me. Cheers guv.

      Thanks OP and thanks @R3XNebular. It worked after using your direct link.

      Ordered and on it's way.

      Smart Ozbargainers sign up to Russian/Indian YouTube Premium Family for like $1/month. Paid for a year upfront.

      Was great for me, I had to do none of the minimal set up and no having to pay it every month.

        I am just a monthly subscriber, never saw this family option come up on ozbargain. How do you set that up?

        •  

          Use classifieds
          This is selling/splitting a family subscription - you'll have no trouble filling one up.

          The details should be on the deal, original deal is here

          Basically just needs a VPN, an Indian address (use any) and a credit card to set up.

          As a member, I just PayPal'd the funds over to someone who already set it up.

          Worth it for the peace of mind of not having your Google account wiped from the face of the internet if you ask me. Keep in mind when they ban you for ToS violations it is the entire Google account, not just the single service.

    Those who got the offer, do you have a google home or mini already? I have one. Maybe they are only targeting people who don't have one on their account.

      I have several Google Homes but still got the offer. I've been an AU Google Play Music subscriber for a while though.

    •  

      Yeah, I got the offer and have 4 currently (keep getting them for free).

    •  

      I didn't get the offer as I've signed up via VPN as an Indian subscriber. I also have Google One subscription and managed to get a free Google home mini a free months ago as a part of an offer they had, so maybe that's also a factor playing into who is being targeted with this offer.

          Be located in Canada, France, Great Britain, Ireland, Spain, Italy, Austria, Denmark, Netherlands, Norway, Sweden, or Japan.

          Ummm… Australia wasn't listed, but ok then. She asked me to try the direct link, but that said I wasn't eligible. She said she would escalate the issue and they'll email me back.

    I take it that it wouldn't work if you were on trial right?

    •  

      It just worked for me, and I'm on a 90 day play music trial, and I've already cancelled my subscription.
