Google has just pushed out an update to the YouTube app to allow you to choose your video streaming quality on the fly. Now, with the update, you can choose if you want your videos to stream at 144p, 240p, 360p, 720p, or an auto mode that detects your connection. It seems that an option for full 1080p HD isn't available as a selection, however.
The app is now up to version 5.7. It may take some time for the app update to hit your phones. Prior to the update, the app would only allow users to toggle on and off HD or HQ quality so the update brings more flexibility to those who are either concerned about bandwidth use or streaming quality.
Are you enjoying the new flexibility for streaming quality? Is this a feature that you want and would use on YouTube for Android?
