YouTube announced that it’s doing away with 301+ and will start to keep video views more up to date. Explained through a tweet (via official @YTCreators account), the video play count will now show the real-time number of views that YouTube is confident have come from real people, but won’t include plays by bots, which will still undergo a verification process.

Here’s more information on how YouTube is going to function going ahead:

Earlier, the views on YouTube videos were recorded centrally to be verified as real. When the videos used to cross 300 views, it used to freeze the view count, the painful 301+ count, following the process of verification of viewers, it used to update the count of viewers.

With removal of 301+ freeze, YouTube now offers the video content creators to monitor the performance of videos real time.
