I don’t subscribe to Premium, so I can’t vouch for whether or not the improved bitrate makes a lot of a distinction. However YouTube says that the improved video high quality is turned on mechanically “based mostly in your connection and viewing settings,” so in case you pay for Premium and your movies now look a bit bit nicer, that could be why.
YouTube additionally detailed just a few different enhancements that are actually obtainable to Premium subscribers. Now you can choose up movies the place you left off when watching on good TVs and tablets; beforehand, this was solely one thing you could possibly do when transferring between cellular and the net. Premium subscribers can even be capable to attempt YouTube’s experimental conversational AI chatbot and AI-generated video abstract options.
