60fps YouTube videos now available on iOS and Android

YouTube has rolled out its 60 frames per second video support to its iOS and Android apps.

The video giant debuted 60fps video last summer with a short of Battlefield: Hardline. It was then rolled out across its website in October.

This new change for smartphone and tablet apps is a server change, so users don't need to update their apps. The new feature is already available on a number of other devices, including PS4, PS3 and Apple TV.

VentureBeat reports that the 60fps smartphone and tablet support is limited to pre-recorded videos and is not yet supported by livestreams – a function that is currently available on the desktop site.
