YouTube has changed view count metrics on videos in India. The popular video platform from Google now displays view count numbering format as ‘Lakh’ and ‘Crore’, instead of Millions and Billions. A lot of users from India have reported the change, but it doesn’t seem to be showing for everyone yet. Also, there isn’t any official statement from the company as yet.

For those in India, the new view count format is simpler and easy to understand. World over the common base 10 system is used for counting large numbers, but it is different in different regions. In India, 10 million gets little confusing for people, but now with the change, YouTube video views will appear as 1 crore instead of 10 million.
