Netflix Setting for Quality

Now you can choose one of the qualities you need. My Recommendations are :

Low: If you have very slow internet or simply want to save Data aggressively.

Medium: If you want Not the Best or the worst Quality. Also saves Data. I would recommend this if you have Data Cap or a little slower internet. It also gives Much Better quality than Low settings. 

High: If you have great internet and Need the Best Quality. This is Data Hungry as it uses up to 3 GB for HD and up to 7 GB for 4K So if you have a Data Cap on Internet this is Not the Best option as you could finish the Data Cap very fast especially if you like to binge-watch.

Also, this setting only changes Playback settings to your Profile only. It doesn’t change the playback option of others in your Account.

Enjoy Your Netflix. If you want to change anything just come back to this Settings and you can change.
