    This is not a bug. That's same for everyone irrespective of the phone model. Youtube itself has reduced the resolution to 480p for everyone streaming on mobile phones. This is done to reduce strain on internet as many users are onine at the same time due to Coronavirus.

    It's not a bug ,as per directions from indian telecom dept. most of the OTT and YouTube has temporary reduced the quality from HD to SD (480p) until further notice from telecom department

    This decision taken up due to ongoing covid-19 lockdown and work from home for indian region

    I heard YouTube limiting the stream around the world... Because they traffic too much because COVID-19

    Every online streaming platform has limited it's video resolution to SD only because of the increased traffic in COVID-19

    Update: YouTube has re-enable the 720p or higher resolution on videos but for that you need to enable Wi-Fi to get that option ,it's a server side update from YouTube
