Users can now view videos in 4K without having Premium membership

A trial by YouTube to only allow its Premium subscribers access to 4K material has been “turned off,” according to the company. Everyone should be able to access 4K quality without any limits or expensive subscriptions, the company said on Twitter.

Users reportedly saw “Premium” next to the 2160p setting in their YouTube app last month, according to reports. Few consumers reported it, indicating that the corporation was only conducting A/B testing.

It’s unknown what the experiment’s findings were, but it’s a good thing YouTube opted to back out and scrap the project. However, a tweet earlier this month in Japanese did indicate that YouTube is still seeking input on the feature, indicating that it has not yet been completely abandoned.
