The annoying 301+ frozen views on that popular YouTube video is no longer, the service announced on Twitter Wednesday.
When a video was going viral and notching thousands of plays in the past, a counter would be stuck at 301 while being verified. That practice, however, is history.
“We’re saying goodbye to 301+ and hello to more up-to-date video views,” YouTube announced on the social media service. Google-owned YouTube also posted a graphic with the tweet explaining the reasoning behind freezing the number of view counts at 301 initially.
“Now, we count views we’re confident come from real people as they’re recorded, and keep reviewing the rest,” YouTube wrote in the attached graphic.
Here’s the tweet for more information:
