Video streaming app YouTube is now updated to version 5.7 with some much needed improvement. As noted by Android Police, the app finally lets you manually select the quality level when a video is playing. This means Android users can finally select video stream quality like auto, 144p, 240p, 360p, and 720p from the new gear icon, instead of just a choice of HD/HQ (depending on the video) on or off.
The updated YouTube app listed on the Google Play India store on Wednesday did not include this feature, but the listing notes that the video quality is improved for all devices running Android 4.2 or higher. It also includes a new YouTube Mix automatic playlists for music videos. The personal playlists and liked videos will appear in the left-hand guide drawer. Users can share playlists as well. Other than that, users can now see if the comment was shared privately or publicly and can reply or delete it.
