YouTube brings new video resolution controls to mobile devices

Video streaming platform YouTube is testing its new feature in its mobile apps, which allows users to exert more control over resolution when playing videos.

YouTube is testing new video control options in its mobile apps that allow users to further personalize the viewing experience. With the new feature, users will be able to adjust the video resolution according to their data usage preferences.

YouTube has been offering its users the ‘auto’ mode, which adjusts the video resolution depending on the current internet speed. Next to this option, the platform adds a ‘higher image quality’ mode that uses more data and a ‘data saving’ mode that offers poor image quality.

It seems that the higher image quality mode offers a minimum resolution of 720p, while the data saving mode allows for a maximum resolution of 480p. Also, the desired resolution from 144p to 4K UHD can be selected when playing video from ‘advanced’ mode.

Users will also be able to personalize what option they want YouTube to use by default when playing videos on mobile and wireless networks in the App’s Settings section.

YouTube is testing its new video resolution options feature with a wide range of users. Based on the feedback provided, the company will offer the feature to all its users.
