YouTube lowers default streaming quality in Europe to ease pressure on networks

Alphabet CEO Sundar Pichai and YouTube CEO Susan Wojcicki met with European leaders prior to making the temporary change. The company adds that it’s working with governments and network operators “to minimize stress on the system, while also delivering a good user experience.”

Given its global influence, Google has been playing an active role in the battle against COVID-19. The company intends to roll out a campaign across Europe in the coming days that encourages people to follow guidance from health authorities. And earlier this month, Pichai posted a letter on the Google’s website highlighting several enhancements the tech giant has made to products like Search, Maps and YouTube in light of the pandemic.

The company has also come under criticism with Verily, the health-care unit of Alphabet, for designing a website to screen people in the Bay Area for coronavirus. The website requires a Google account, which critics suggest may be used for advertising purposes.
