YouTube’s 2160p could become a Premium feature: Google is testing it in the app

It seems that YouTube is toying with the idea of ​​turning 4k resolution into a Premium feature. On Reddit, a screenshot shared from youtube appwhich reads “Premium – Tap to upgrade” at the 2160p option.

It has been clear for some time that Google wants you to take YouTube Premium. The large amount of advertisements, combined with the constantly appearing ‘tip’ to try Premium for a month is disturbing to say the least.


2160p as a Premium feature in the YouTube app (Reddit).

Limiting functionality for ‘non-Premium’ users is nothing new in itself: for example, the YouTube app does not allow you to run a video in the background without having a subscription (something the YouTube Vanced-app fixes).

Google may now also want to limit the 2160p, or 4k resolution, although it seems that most users are not yet bothered by this. The company may try the new ‘feature’ first with a small group of users.

The normal YouTube Premium subscription costs €11.99 per month. You then have no ads at YouTube and YouTube Music, and you can play and download in the background. In the Netherlands, the Youtube Premium Lite subscription is also offered, with which you only get rid of the advertisements, for € 6.99.
