People in India are confused as YouTube India came with the new change to the views and subscribers count by using Lakhs and Crore instead of Thousand and Million. When a video gets 100K views on YouTube, it has started showing 1Lakh views instead, also the subscriber count. This change is only seen on the YouTube Android app and Desktop Web version so far and not confirmed on iPhones.
India mainly uses Lakhs and crores in their number system and when they count money or any numbers, but people are used to the M (Million) on YouTube, and it is hard to change for many. For someone New to Lakh and Crore, Lakhs or Lac is 100K and Crore is 10M.
