Indian film production house and music label T-Series needs slightly more than 800 subscribers to beat Swedish YouTuber PewDiePie’s channel and become the No 1 YouTube Channel.

Currently, T-series has over 90,337,357 subscribers while PewDiePie has subscribers with a count of 90,338, 188.

The battle between the two channels was going on for long. Even T-Series head honcho Bhushan Kumar started #BharatWins campaign on social media, urging people to help in making T-Series the world’s most subscribed YouTube channel.

“There is an Indian YouTube channel on the brink of becoming World’s No.1. It has taken us a lot of effort to come this far. To take my father Mr. Gulshan Kumar’s dream forward, I started this channel.

“Today, it belongs to you, to the entire nation. It’s a historic moment for all of us. So let’s come together and subscribe to T-Series YouTube channel and make India proud,” Bhushan tweeted earlier this month.

Targeting teenagers, Google-owned content sharing app YouTube is bringing a new education feature called Learning Playlists with dedicated landing pages for educational videos on topics like math, science, music and language, free from algorithmic recommendations.

The free-from-recommendations Playlists would have organisational features like chapters around key concepts, ordered from beginner to advanced lessons to help viewers’ focus on their lessons without distractions, The Verge reported on Thursday.

The videos, as part of the educational playlists, would not autoplay at the end of a playlist either, reducing the chances of users’ falling asleep during chemistry lessons and waking up to videos about conspiracy theories.

Removing recommended videos from Learning Playlists shows that YouTube is not taking any chances when it comes to getting educational content right, the report said.

In October 2018, YouTube announced that it was investing $20 million to fund resources for educational creators and organisations through a Learning Fund initiative.
