For example, right now T-series have 99,240,565 subscribers the Indian music-video channel that recently surpassed PewDiePie to become the most-subscribed channel on the platform would be listed in all public counts as having “99M” subscribers.

Why You tube doing this?

YouTube’s official explanation is that it wants to “create more consistency everywhere that we publicly display subscriber counts,” according to a blog post Tuesday announcing the change. Currently, all channels with more than 1,000 subscribers have their subscriber counts displayed differently in different places across YouTube desktop and mobile apps.

The counts have long played a unique role in the YouTube community. Unlike on Twitter, Instagram, or Facebook, the metric isn’t just a measure of an account’s following or reach; it’s also viewed as a real-time manifestation of public sentiment.
