    It is account, location, and network dependent. For further queries, ask Google

    only showing 480p quality on op7...how to get 1080p in normal..please tell me any option to increase quality?
    PS: OnePlus 8T is working smoothly with 1080p while in oneplus7 it's not working and youtube 1080p restriction is removed in India. I guess it's device specific issue and not with YouTube as i can see 1080p available on 8T. OnePlus team please answer my query..

    Dear Harshal,
    When the coronavirus pandemic started, a bunch of streaming platforms in India started to restrict their video quality to a maximum resolution of 480p on mobile devices, as a way to reduce network congestion when other crucial services might need more bandwidth. YouTube was probably the biggest platform of those who did so. said:
    You can still watch them @1080p over wifi network.

    its geolocation restrictions, not the phone restriction. some countries limit the resolution for youtube.
