4. Youtube Resumes HD Playback on Smartphones with a Catch
When the Government of India announced the lockdown to fight COVID-’19, extra load on the internet was a problem. Many people began to use more bandwidth at home to stream videos. To tackle this issue Google decided to restrict HD streaming of videos played on Youtube. This decision was to help ease the burden on the internet and to facilitate better work from home connectivity. Now Google has revoked this limit with some conditions.
As the country is going through the unlock phase in the fight against COVID-’19, Google has allowed HD Streaming of Youtube on Mobile devices. This means Youtube users can stream Youtube videos in HD if they are connected to a WiFi network. Now you can stream videos with HD, Full HD, or even higher quality on supported devices. Previously, Google had limited the playback quality to just SD (480P). But now you can watch the videos on the same quality in which the Youtuber has uploaded the video.
