YouTube Premium - new features 2023 - 1080p premium

The most familiar of these features is the 1080p Premium which the company previously was reported to be testing out. It is said to offer crisper videos, especially those with a lot of detail and motion by having an enhanced bitrate version. The feature is said to benefit viewers who are fans of sports and gaming videos.

The 1080p Premium though will start on iOS and will be experimented on Web soon as well.

Along with the better bitrate, YouTube Premium subscribers will enjoy the ability to watch YouTube videos using FaceTime via SharePlay for iOS users. This is pretty similar to the Meet Live Sharing feature on Android devices, where Premium subscribers can host Google Meet sessions and watch videos with the attendees regardless if they’re Premium or free users.
