YouTube premium users will soon be able to download videos in 1080p resolution for watching videos offline. Before this, users were able to download videos in 720p resolution max. Even if the uploaded video was available in a higher quality.

Now, as spotted, YouTube has finally started rolling out the 1080p download option. The below images can confirm the availability of the new option on both iOS and Android.
