YouTube is no longer business as usual as it will continue to press you to subscribe to its Premium version, that’s if you’ve used the video service recently. Currently, Google is offering another incentive by allowing those who have sub. to Premium to try out experimental features still under development through ‘Android Central’.
Up until mid-September, those tests were available at random to all YouTube users.
The video service has in the past tested upcoming features like picture-in-picture with random users and beta app testers. YouTube is most likely to keep testing certain things the same way, but now it seems to be saving the interesting Labs program toys for subscribers.
There are three new features available to Premium users right now. One on iOS only allows you to watch and seek within videos directly from the home screen, while another feature lets you search for videos using your voice, this is available on the web only, and the last one will help users filter by topic in new languages: Spanish, French or Portuguese.
Currently, YouTube Premium costs $11.99 per month for ad-free viewing, YouTube Music, background play, and other features are also available. The Labs program probably isn’t enough to push anyone into subscribing, but it still could be a good perk for regular users.
