To change data on YouTube? The globally popular video streaming platform is considering requiring its Premium users to subscribe to stream video in 4K resolution.

YouTube supports 4K video since 2010. For 12 years, 4K videos, and even higher resolution videos such as 8K introduced on the platform in 2015, have been available for free to all platform users.

According to multiple reports on Reddit over the past month, YouTube (a subsidiary of Alphabet, i.e. Google) is testing a change in the status quo. For those on Google’s experimental team, when selecting a specific resolution for a video, non-subscribers will see the word “Premium” next to the option for 4K/2160p.

Simply put, a new restriction is added to non-subscribing YouTube users, while at the same time this restriction acts as a new “perk” of YouTube Premium. As of now, the YouTube Premium subscription has the following benefits: it removes ads from the platform, allows subscribers to play videos on a small screen on Android and iOS, and allows them to download videos for offline viewing. The subscription also includes Google’s music service YouTube Music.
