YouTube now plays 1440p videos on the LG G3

The first globally-available device from with Quad HD display a well-known manufacturer, the LG G3, is putting to shame the plethora of flagships that sport displays with a mere resolution of 1080 x 1920. The 5.5-inch screen of the G3 comes with a spectacular resolution of 1440 x 2560 pixels, and although some apps and games are not yet compatible with the device, Google wants to make sure that the undoubtedly-coming crop of Quad HD devices can make full use of their displays.
If you are a proud owner of an LG G3, then rejoice, as YouTube now allows you to behold spectacular 1440p videos on your device. This nifty functionality arrived via a recent update and if you are flaunting a G3 flagship, but unable to watch such videos, then you should probably wait for said update to land on your device. Naturally, non-G3 devices won't see such an option in YouTube's recently-added video quality menu.

I guess it depends if the video supports that feature? I watched some videos and still have the option of the 720p and 1080p. Haven't seen 1440p yet.

You need an 8.4+ inch device in order to enjoy a YouTube Quad HD content! The G3's screen is so small you'd be hard pressed to tell whether it's playing a 1080p or a 2k video.

Strange..but 1080p playback still isn't available for my Nexus 5. Hmm. Anyone experiencing this issue on their 1080p device?

Some of the comments are overlooking what this really means.The1440 res is relative To the G3 and proper playback conditions. A Nexus can't playback a 1080. Res without a video recorded at that speed on a compatible device with a network band with capable of the consistent speed to keep the resolution at an optimal performance level. The device alone doesn't won't guarantee performance.
