YouTube presently supports 4K HDR playback on Android
- February 20, 2021
Everybody would like in the event that they could generally watch videos in the most elevated conceivable resolution, yet technical limits frequently stop us — a slow connection, a low-res display, DRM, paywalled subscriptions, or even a limitation set up by the application to prevent a specific platform’s clients from streaming in high res. For example, Google used to restrict YouTube videos to 1440p on Android, regardless of whether they were uploaded in 4K or more. That is not true anymore now.
YouTube clients on Android can at long last profit by similar high-res limit as their iOS companions, and watch videos at up to 2160p (4K) HDR. However long the uploaded video was initially 4K or larger, and had HDR, you get the two options in the quality selection pop up in the application. This is by all accounts genuine paying little heed to your phone’s display, so you could waste your bandwidth streaming a 2160p on a 720p display and nobody will stop you or reveal to you it’s pointless.
The first indication of the feature going live dates back a few days prior, to February 15, at that point reports began coming in thick and fast after that. Presently, the entirety of our gadgets have the option, regardless of the account, country, or app version, so it appears to have turned out generally. On the off chance that you don’t see it, have a go at snatching the most recent YouTube form from APK Mirror to ensure you’re not behind.
