The YouTube app for Android has been updated and it brought support to watch videos with resolutions up to 1440p. YouTube recently added 1080p streaming option to its Android app in favor of smartphones featuring Full HD (1920x1080px) display.
This new 1440p streaming feature will be an advantage to users who use smartphones with quad-HD (2560x1440p) displays like the LG G3 or the Samsung Galaxy S5 LTE-A. It’s true that the devices with this type of displays are available for lesser number of devices as of now,but could increase in future and YouTube is leaving no chance for users of those devices to complain.
Of course, this 1440p option will be enabled only if the video is available at that resolution and playing such a video at this high resolution can consume much of user’s data. So it is advised to connect to Wi-Fi before switching to this resolution while watching videos.
