If you like to try the experimental functions launched by your favorite apps before anyone else, you will have an advantage on YouTube if you are a premium user. This is what the Google team lets you know on the YouTube page.
So far, any experiment or new function is tested with a small group of users who are chosen at random. But this is about to change on YouTube, as they will be a bonus for your premium subscribers.
Of course, these features will be accessible for a limited time, as they are in testing. They can change their dynamics or disappear at any time. For example, some of the available experimental features mentioned on the YouTube page are:
- View videos with sound on the home page from the app on iOS
- Voice video search function from Chrome
- Custom filters in additional languages
This series of features will be available for a couple of weeks for premium users. And of course, they will have the entire feature pack that YouTube promises to its subscribers, for example, background playback, zero advertising, etc.
The Google team has not mentioned why it is applying this change to experimental features, but it may be to give its subscribers a bonus. Or to make sure that the functions are available to users who use YouTube frequently, understand its dynamics and appreciate the improvements that are being developed in the platform. And of course, they will also be interested in offering feedback.
So if you are a premium user you can go to the YouTube page to access the functions, without going through any filter.
