A few years back, we made a big decision at YouTube. While everyone seemed focused on how many views a video got, we thought the amount of time someone spent watching a video was a better way to understand whether a viewer really enjoyed it. It wasn’t an easy call, but we thought it would help us make YouTube a more engaging place for creators and fans. And last year, we hit a big milestone on that journey: people around the world are now watching a billion hours of YouTube’s incredible content every single day!
Let’s put that in perspective. If you were to sit and watch a billion hours of YouTube, it would take you over 100,000 years. 100,000 years ago, our ancestors were crafting stone tools and migrating out of Africa while mammoths and mastodons roamed the Earth. If you spent 100,000 years traveling at the speed of light, you could travel from one end of the Milky Way to the other (and you wouldn’t age a day!). And if you searched for 100,000 years on YouTube, you’d find a really killer KISS track.
That’s the great thing about this milestone. It represents the enjoyment of the fantastically diverse videos that creative people make every single day. Around the world, people are spending a billion hours every day rewarding their curiosity, discovering great music, keeping up with the news, connecting with their favorite personalities, or catching up with the latest trend.
We’ve worked hard behind the scenes to make that billion-hour journey possible, but this isn’t just our milestone. It belongs to all of you, too—the global audience that tunes in every day and the creators whose videos have made YouTube the original, surprising and limitless source of entertainment it is. From all of us here at YouTube, please accept our heartfelt thanks.

There are a couple of things everyone is wondering about the Priv. Number one, how do you actually pronounce it, and number two, how well does it work? Luckily, John Chen, CEO of BlackBerry, explains both, sorta.
We can finally put the name guessing aside, “Priv” is pronounced like “give”, only with a “P”. We got number one out of the way and now to cover number two, how well does it work?
Chen went on BNN to show the world how the brand new BlackBerry Priv works. The same phone that he has been leading his team in creating, and making sure it becomes a huge hit. However, by the video on BNN, it looks more like he has no clue how to use it. Not only does the video make it look like he has never seen the device before, he also seems to be totally new to Android.
All he had to do was show up to BNN, use the phone in any normal way, and impress consumers enough to buy it. Somehow, screws it up. Definitely check out the video, it’s pretty funny. He didn’t open one app properly or show the actual keyboard in use. However, even with the mistakes, the phone still looks like it could be a success. Dual curve screen, high-end specs, actual keyboard that doubles as a trackpad, it has all the parts to be a win for BlackBerry. We will just have to imagine everything works great since Chen showed us nothing.
