YouTube gets rid of ‘301+’ views count of videos

Washington D C, Aug. 6 : YouTube has announced that it’s removing the 301+ views play count for new videos and will start to keep video views more up to date.

According to the Verge, YouTube says that it will now continue to add new views as they happen, as long as it is sure that they are genuine.

The views that YouTube suspects as coming from bots will be added later if they are cleared.

Earlier, YouTube froze the counter at the 301+ count and it was used as a placeholder for popular new videos while YouTube verify which views were authentic and which were not. (ANI)
