There are many reasons to use YouTube Premium. It is true that one of the strongest features for many users is not having to deal with advertising. However, there are many more features that make this paid model very attractive. Even so, if nothing has aroused your interest so far, know that fresh news has just arrived on this platform. So Google has now implemented a higher bitrate for 1080p videos, SharePlay support for iOS and much more.
There are new reasons to use YouTube Premium!
If you’re thinking of using YouTube Premium then you’ve chosen the best time to do so. In fact, there are many news.
Add videos to the playback queue on smartphones and tablets
True, this function was already available in the version for computers. However, the app for mobile devices was lacking. Now that has changed and it is now possible for us to add videos to our queue on mobile devices.
Higher bitrate for 1080p videos
The YouTube app on iOS is getting a new video quality setting that lets you watch content at an improved bitrate. The feature is only available for Full HD 1080p videos. By the way, Google says that the improved version guarantees extra sharp playback for videos that have a lot of detail and movement, such as videos of sports or games. The new configuration will be available to users in the coming weeks.
However, the revelation made on Google’s blog says that the higher bitrate option is also coming soon to the web version of YouTube as an experiment.
SharePlay para iOS
YouTube Premium subscribers on iOS can now watch videos together using SharePlay on Apple’s FaceTime app. The video streaming service already supports a similar option on Android, which is possible through the Live Sharing option of the Google Meet application. Now it is possible that for this to happen all users must have a Premium account.
Resume playback across devices
Meanwhile, YouTube Premium now syncs playback across multiple devices, so you can jump back to the video that was streaming and pick it up on another. This functionality is not exclusive to mobile platforms, it is available on the web, Android, and iOS.
Automatic offline downloads for recommended videos
YouTube Premium lets you store videos on your smartphone, so you can watch them even when you don’t have an active network connection. Now a new function called smart downloads has been added. It will automatically download recommended videos to your device for offline viewing. The feature works when connected to a Wi-Fi network.
However, YouTube recommendations are personalized based on your viewing history. So these automatic downloads are based on the same algorithm.
In fact, these are very positive aspects for anyone who wants to subscribe to YouTube Premium and I was still undecided whether to do so.
