If you’re using YouTube Music on your Android smartphone and would like to be able to better control the audio quality when you’re streaming or downloading, then you might be pleased to learn that YouTube Music for Android has started to roll out an update that will be introducing quality controls for users.
According to 9to5Google, these controls were actually spotted back in July during an APK teardown in which there were signs hinting at such controls. However the good news is that these controls are now available for users, where users will now be able to select their audio quality when they are on WiFi, or when they are on a mobile network.
This will apply to audio files and for those who are looking to download videos to save them for watching offline, users also get the option of picking the download quality. There is also the option to capture only the audio aspect of the video, in case you don’t really need to see the video to enjoy the music.
These changes should already be live so if you have yet to update the YouTube Music app to the latest version, you should if you’d like to get more control over the sound quality from the app.
