YouTube Premium Announces Support for SharePlay and Enhanced 1080p on iPhone

Posted April 10, 2023 at 4:52pm by iClarified
YouTube has announced five new features for its Premium members including support for SharePlay and enhanced 1080p videos on iPhone.

From more control and access, to ads-free, offline, background play and an uninterrupted music listening experience, here are some of our latest Premium features for pro users — including new updates you can try out today.

Check out the new features below...



1. Take control of what to watch with queuing on your phone or tablet
Are you the type who likes to jump from a Bad Bunny music video to the latest episode of Overtime from Dude Perfect? Queuing puts the control back in your hands allowing you to decide exactly what video you want to play next. Today, for Premium members, we're expanding queuing to phones and tablets, giving you complete control over what you're watching. Click here to learn more.

2. Watch YouTube together on Android and iOS
The only thing better than watching your favorite YouTube videos is sharing that moment with other people. That's why we recently made sharing even easier. Through Meet Live Sharing on Android devices, Premium members can host Google Meet sessions where all attendees, regardless of whether they are Premium or free users, can watch YouTube videos together. In the coming weeks, we're also rolling out this experience for FaceTime users on iOS via SharePlay. No matter where your friends and family are, you can experience the joy of YouTube together.

3. Jump back into YouTube across devices
Sometimes life can get in the way of your YouTube viewing. Maybe your morning commute ends before you've finished that new podcast episode. Perhaps you need to switch that cooking tutorial from your laptop to your tablet in the kitchen. Now available on Android, iOS and Web, Premium members can continue watching YouTube videos wherever they previously left off even as they switch between devices, allowing you to jump back in without a single interruption.

4. Keep the YouTube experience going when you're offline
We understand that our users may not always be connected to the internet, but that doesn't mean it should stop your YouTube Premium experience. With Smart Downloads, while you're connected to Wi-Fi, we automatically add recommended videos straight to your library, ready for offline viewing. Forgot to download your favorite content before boarding that long flight? Don't worry! With this feature you can watch videos on-the-go, whenever you want, while also discovering new content without the hassle of searching.

5. Enhance your video quality on iOS
To provide an even higher video quality experience for our Premium members, in the coming weeks we'll be launching an enhanced bitrate version of 1080p HD video quality starting on iOS (and an experiment coming to Web soon too.) While all users will still have access to 1080p, this enhanced 1080p quality setting will look extra crisp and clear, especially for videos with lots of detail and motion. Whether you're an avid sports fan or locked in on the latest gaming videos, this new feature will bring an even deeper visual quality to our members!
