Last year in October, YouTube introduced the ability to stream video at 60fps, but it was limited to the desktop version only. Now, YouTube 60fps video streaming enabled on YouTube Android and iOS Apps
Does YouTube 60fps video streaming on Android and iOS Apps requires updating of YouTube app?
The new Youtube 60fps video streaming enabled on YouTube Android and iOS apps appears to have been turned on via changes on the server end. So users do not need to update their YouTube app to enable the new quality settings, they just need to loo
k out for any 60fps video and play it. Once users have found an appropriate video, if it doesn’t start streaming at 60fps automatically, they just need to tap on the quality settings option and they will be able to see the option for ‘720p60′ or ‘1080p60′ listed.
“The new YouTube 60fps streaming support on Android and iOS apps is just for videos and not livestreams,” said YouTube spokesperson. Desktop version of YouTube added support for 60fps livestreams this year in May.
In addition to YouTube 60fps video streaming enabled on YouTube Android and iOS Apps, 60fps YouTube is also available for the PlayStation 3 and 4 consoles and the Apple TV. Google has added support for 60fps 4K videos along with 60fps in 720p and 1080p. If someone is using YouTube on some third-party app or via a mobile browser, they will not be able to take advantage of the higher frame rate options.
