To reduce the stress on the internet infrastructure, YouTube will reportedly stream worldwide in standard definition for about a month.
A Bloomberg report notes that in the coming days, users will first see YouTube videos in standard definition. However, if they want to, they can choose a higher definition. The policy is already active in Europe.
The move comes after the European Commission has urged major streaming services such as Netflix and Amazon Prime Video to lower their standard streaming quality to help reduce mass consumption during the COVID-19 outbreak. (ANI)
