YouTube will make all of its video streams across the globe to ‘Standard Definition’, the selfsame move as in Europe with the global internet traffic spearing up on the grounds of social distancing being practiced to fray SARS-CoV-2 spread, reports Bloomberg.
Google is also reported to say that it’s continuously working closely with government and network operators from across the world thus doing its part in order to curtail accentuation on the system while the bizarre outbreak continues.
However, users can manually make adjustments in their players to enjoy ‘High Definition’ playbacks.
The decision from YouTube comes after Netflix, Amazon Prime Video, and Disney Plus cut down its video streaming quality in Europe to adjust the traffic spike. Now it’s going into effect for everybody.
On the other hand, Sony, on Tuesday, also proclaimed to limit its downloads speed to its PlayStation customers considering the increment in demand.
