My phone only streams 720p, so this really isn't important to me. Nice that YouTube is adding this, although they should've just had it in the first place, considering you pay $11.99 a month for it :P

r33fd, 02 Aug 2019Paying money for something you should be able to do for free...What's so strange about it? That way, if you are able to take something in store for free you just take it? It's basically same thing. Not everyone just download all software, music, movies for free... Some use such services. Just think about it.

Call me st**id but are those ways of downloading or keeping such content that you mention here legal? That service is paid for reason, it's not free content, or? If it's possible to avoid it, that doesn't mean it's alright.
Besides, you can watch it on YouTube as much as you want using proper devices including Android TV as was said below.

Lost snail, 02 Aug 2019Yeah lol, you can download up to 720p without itIf you use a third party apps you can even download 4K videos.

I know at least two apps that let you download YouTube videos in upto 1080p. Then there are also websites which work similar on mobile to how they work on PC.

But this article is about smart phones, and probably there are not so many options as we have on PC(I am only guessing, because I never download anything to my smart phone).

You can download any resolution videos from YouTube by a number of methods... I'm not gonna state how though. You can google for that.
