Youtube starts showing view counts as ‘Lakhs’ and ‘Crores’ in India

Team Udayavani, Apr 18, 2020, 5:10 PM IST

YouTube has started displaying the View count on its videos using the Indian numbering format that includes units such as ‘lakhs’ and ‘crores’ rather than millions and billions.

It is currently visible only on YouTube’s Android app. Also, there was no update or announcement from YouTube and it is not visible for all Android users.

View count of videos that have crossed 1,00,000 are now displayed in lakh instead of hundred thousands (100K and so on) and videos that have crossed 1,00,00,000 views are displayed in crore instead of 10M and so on

The change in view count will be applicable only to Indian viewers. YouTube has so far determined view counts in thousands, millions and billions for creators and viewers globally.

However, Some users have already started complaining about this new change on social media platforms claiming it to be confusing.
