YouTube for Android reportedly offering 1440p playback options for the LG G3


Google could be testing 1440p video playback on its YouTube for Android app. The folks at Droid-Life have successfully enabled the higher resolution on an LG G3, however we tested the software with three separate devices (Korean LG G3, Verizon LG G3 and an Oppo Find 7) and weren’t so lucky. So perhaps Mountain View is slowly deploying this new feature.

Google started testing 480p and 1080p resolutions for its YouTube app back in June and as more QHD display devices become available, the search giant will likely raise its standards. We’ve reached out to Google for comment and will update this article if we hear anything new.
