Back in March, YouTube TV announced Multiview, which allows subscribers to watch up to four games at one time. At the time, YouTube said it was in beta mode and new features would be coming before the start of the NFL season. Now Google has announced that news about Multiview and improved picture quality will be coming next month. So what should we expect? Here is what we know.

What to expect from YouTube TV’s Multiview;

One of the main requests for Multiview has been the ability to customize this feature with the channels you want. Recently YouTube TV confirmed that they hope to make this feature customizable in the future. Hopefully, this will be the big news that YouTube TV will make in July.

What to expect from YouTube TV’s improved picture quality:

When YouTube TV first announced improved picture quality, here is what they said.

Picture Quality Experiments: We’re testing transcoding changes, including a bitrate increase for live 1080p content over the next several weeks. These will target devices that support the VP9 codec with high-speed internet connections. If these go well, we plan to make them permanent by this summer. More info to come!

Hopefully, improved picture quality rolls out next month.

Here is what YouTube TV announced this month:

5.1 Audio/Video Sync: We’re rolling out some fixes over the next few weeks to address A/V sync issues across Live playback. We continue to welcome feedback! Feel free to leave a picture of your Stats for Nerds and your device information on this thread if you’re still experiencing issues. We’re also actively working on a separate follow on fix for VOD audio sync issues.

Apple TV: We resolved an issue last month with 1st gen 4k Apple TV devices crashing on long playbacks.

DVR: We had a few transient delays with DVR availability due to last month’s outage, but these are fully resolved.

Library Changes: We’ve heard your feedback about Library issues and are working on fixes to address the relevancy of Catch Up on your Favorites, incorrect Watch badging, and ordering of Recently Recorded entries.

NFL Sunday Ticket Unlimited Streams at Home: You asked and we listened! We’re updating our product functionality to grant you access to unlimited NFL Sunday Ticket streams in your home and 2 additional streams outside of your home for you and your household. You can read more here.

Stay tuned for more updates on the multiview feature and video quality next month! As always, thanks for your feedback.
