For YouTube Premium subscribers
Enhanced 1080p image quality mode appeared in the browser version of YouTube.
The corresponding mode became available in the browser version of YouTube
Recall that initially this mode became available on iOS in April. Now it is available to everyone on PC. More precisely, to all paid YouTube Premium subscribers – it is they who can find a new item in the quality settings and activate it. Actually, this item is also available for those who do not have a subscription, but it will not work to activate it.
Assessing the change in quality isn’t easy, but Google says that the higher quality mode will make the video sharper, especially in the case of dynamic scenes.
