Google yesterday highlighted the new benefits that are rolling out to YouTube Premium subscribers. Google also revealed that there are now 80 million Premium members and trialers.
- YouTube is expanding queuing to phones and tablets, giving you complete control over what you’re watching.
- Through Meet Live Sharing on Android devices, Premium members can host Google Meet sessions where all attendees, regardless of whether they are Premium or free users, can watch YouTube videos together. In the coming weeks, YouTube will be rolling out this experience for FaceTime users on iOS via SharePlay.
- On Android, iOS and Web, Premium members can continue watching YouTube videos wherever they previously left off even as they switch between devices, allowing you to jump back in without a single interruption.
- With Smart Downloads, while you’re connected to Wi-Fi, YouTube will automatically add recommended videos straight to your library, ready for offline viewing.
- In the coming weeks, YouTube will be launching an enhanced bitrate version of 1080p HD video quality starting on iOS (and an experiment coming to Web soon too.) This enhanced 1080p quality setting will look extra crisp and clear, especially for videos with lots of detail and motion.
