    I have tried the same videos on other android devices, and they'll play at 60 fps. But, no... Not the Note 7. I have tried uninstalling updates for YouTube, rebooting and reinstalling and then trying updating, but nothing works

    Your resolution will only be limited by your connection... I run videos on YouTube at that resolution easily

    Yes I'm tmobile. But I'm always on wifi... If you're not getting 1080p on wifi there's a problem. I'm assuming you know you can change the resolution manually... Right?

    I know how to change the resolution, and I'm on 100 mbps AC wifi, and when I'm not on that it's verizon 4G. Not sure why I'm not getting the option to even select 1080P 60fps

    No my T-Mobile question was to OP. He didn't mention he was on Wi-Fi, so I thought Binge-On might be the culprit.

    To the OP, I had the same issue at first with the Note 7 but I figured it out. Open the YouTube app on the phone and go to settings (the three dots in the upper right corner). Under "General", there is an option that is on by default called "Limit mobile data usage". Turn that option off and you should be good to go.

    Is it just my phone or does the Android YouTube app doesn't play videos in 60 fps?

    Darn. Thought you might be on to something. Went and checked, and that option was already set properly. Tried it the other way just to make sure. Same thing. Switched it back. Same thing

    I just answered this same question for someone else on here :-) If you open YouTube, click on three dots in the upper right corner then hit "Settings" then "General". There you will see an option that (at least on mine) is on by default called "Limit mobile data usage". Turn that off. If keeps you from playing HD videos while on data.

    I tried your suggestion, but unfortunately it was already set properly and didn't fix it

    Hmm, sorry that didn't work. I've tried bouncing back and forth with that setting myself and it did the trick. I'm on Sprint so it could be a carrier thing.

    I was actually asking if the YouTube app will play videos in 60 fps

    Sure will. It's just hit and miss on the Note 7 for some unknown reason. Worked fine on my Note 5. Works fine in my Tab S2

    Isn't the norm only 29 fps for Movies and Tv?

    Are you sure it's a video that supports it? I get it on videos that support it. YouTube won't play in 1080P 60fps on the Note 7-1472525949683.jpg

    Ensure the video supports it. I see them on videos that do. YouTube won't play in 1080P 60fps on the Note 7-1472526225913.jpg

    Have you tried videos that say they do 60fps in the description? Most videos are still only 30fps.

    Does the video quality setting say whether it's 60fps like it does on the iOS YouTube app? Because I viewed the video and it just says "1080p" and not "1080p 60 fps"

    That's the crap mine does. It should allow us to select 60fps, but it doesn't for some reason

    Yes. These are videos that I know support 60fps. Some were shot and edited by me. Besides, I can watch the same videos on other android devices in 60 fps
