YouTube is testing a menu most comprehensive way to regulate the consumption of data

YouTube is currently testing a new option that allows you to better choose the limitation of quality to impose on the videos when it is not connected to a Wi-Fi network.

YouTube has the habit of testing small changes — server-side — on its mobile app. Recently, a reader of Android Police has noticed that the tab “Limit mobile data” in settings-general had been enriched.

As a reminder, the current version of YouTube, this menu allows the user to indicate if the videos in high resolution (from 720p) should be read only via a Wi-Fi connection. One has the choice between limiting the videos to 480p when it is on its connection to 4G or not to opt for any limitation.

The option to ” Limit mobile data “.

In the new version tested by the platform, the user has more possibilities. When it is not connected to Wi-Fi, it can select with more precision what limits to impose to the quality of the videos played. Six choices are offered now to him : 144p, 240p, 360p, 480p, 720p, or it can decide not to fix no limits to quality.

This new feature proves to be handy for all those who seek the right balance between a definition video quality and data consumption moderate. Personally, I have not yet received this update, but perhaps some of our readers have already had this chance. Please do not hesitate to tell us in the comments if this is already the case.
