I can confirm that I'm able to switch to 4k resolution in YouTube on my S8.

Ok figured this out. Go to settings and under display find resolution and slide that bar to the MAX!! Fixed the issue for me.

You said it @Oreo6432! You guys are awesome for helping each other out. I love to see this kind of stuff. I'd be lying if I didn't say I was a tiny bit jealous ya'll get to play with S8's, as I'll have to wait a bit. If you guys would like, check out my blog post I created here - Unbox Your Phone.....AND Your Thoughts!

 

Let me know what ya'll think about your new S8's there. I'd love to read about it.

So switching your profile to Entertainment Mode on your phone had no change whatsoever? Did you make sure to fully restart the Youtube application afterwards, or your phone in general? You can also customize those settings on your phone and make sure your resolution is turned as high as it will go, or toggle it down to the default resolution most videos are going to be at anyways.
