An update to YouTube Music for Android allows paid subscribers to Premium to pick the audio quality they want to use for streaming on mobile internet and Wi-Fi. In the settings of the app, users can choose between four quality levels: low, normal, high, always high.

Besides the streaming quality settings, the app now also has quality settings for downloads. Users have the choice between low, normal and high. YouTube has also added a new setting in the video settings: “only audio”, according to 9to5Google.
The quality levels will mean YouTube Music will download or stream music with a higher/lower bitrate, unfortunately the music streaming website has not disclosed which bitrates it uses for each choice. Lower quality levels will consume fewer data traffic and consume less disk space.
