AdvertisementYouTube Premium, the subscription-based version of the world's most popular video-sharing platform, has recently announced exciting updates that will enhance the viewing experience. These new features include higher video quality, SharePlay compatibility, synchronized playback, and additional improvements. With these upgrades, YouTube Premium continues to position itself as a premium destination for high-quality video content.
Now, let’s dive into these features and explore how they can enhance your viewing experience.
Enhanced video quality on iOS
YouTube Premium members using iOS devices can now access an upgraded bitrate version of 1080p HD video quality. Additionally, YouTube is conducting an experiment that will bring this enhanced video quality setting to the Web in the near future. The enhanced bitrate version of 1080p is designed to provide users with crisper, more defined visuals, especially for videos that have a lot of detail and motion.
Queuing on phones and tablets
YouTube Queuing is a feature that enables Premium subscribers to take charge of their viewing experience by allowing them to queue up videos on their mobile devices. With this feature, users have the power to decide which video they want to play next, giving them complete control over their watchlist.
Watch YouTube together on Android and iOS
YouTube Premium subscribers can now host Google Meet sessions on Android devices, allowing both Premium and free users to watch videos together. In the near future, this feature will also be accessible for FaceTime users on iOS via SharePlay. This means that no matter where your friends and family are, you can enjoy YouTube content with them in real-time.
Resume YouTube across devices
YouTube Premium users can now seamlessly pick up where they left off on a video, even when switching between different devices such as Android, iOS, and Web. This new feature ensures a smooth and uninterrupted viewing experience for users, no matter what device they are using.
Enjoy YouTube offline with Premium
YouTube Premium subscribers can now benefit from Smart Downloads, a feature that automatically adds recommended videos to their library while connected to Wi-Fi. This means that users can enjoy their favorite videos offline without the need for constant searching, all while discovering new content. With Smart Downloads, Premium members can watch YouTube on-the-go without worrying about internet connectivity.
In the upcoming weeks, YouTube Premium users can expect to access the new features, which will add to the existing range of benefits that go beyond ad-free viewing. These include access to YouTube Music Premium, offline downloads, and background play, allowing users to watch videos with a locked screen.
