YouTube has announced a huge milestone. The Google owned popular video sharing service has revealed that people are now watching 1 billion hours of YouTube content every single day.

YouTube said the 1 billion figure is a 10-fold increase since 2012. 400 hours of video are uploaded to YouTube each minute, or 65 years of video a day. The company says it would take you over 100,000 years to watch a billion hours of YouTube content. Earlier this month, YouTube opened mobile live streaming to all content creators with more than 10,000 subscribers and will soon expand to others as well.

Cristos Goodrow, VP of engineering at YouTube wrote in a blog post,

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.
