A great new YouTube update has been released that will allow you to fine tune streaming video quality. You’ll now get to specify whether you want your video to play in 144p, 240p, 360p, or 720p. Of course, an automatic mode will be available if you’d rather let the YouTube app decide based on network conditions.
Unfortunately we don’t get access to 1080p, which is a shame considering many high-end phones and tablets support the resolution. This is a good start, though, and we’re sure Google’s weighing their options for further improvements to this much needed feature in the near future. You can grab the update from Google Play right here.
