YouTube rolls out HDR support for mobile devices

Google added HDR (High Dynamic Range) video support for YouTube in November last year. The addition allowed users to watch YouTube videos in HDR on supported TVs. Now it is rolling out support for HDR videos to the YouTube's Android mobile app.

The devices that support YouTube Mobile HDR include Google's Pixel, Pixel 2, LG's V30, Samsung's Galaxy S8/S8+ and Note 8, and Sony's Xperia XZ Premium. The feature will support HDR playback at up to 1440p (2K) resolution and 60fps.

However, users are facing problems while playing HDR contents on their mobile devices like stuttering video,  no full screen mode options, no option to return back to previous resolutions, and brightness set to maximum in landscape mode resulting in battery life drain.

Meanwhile, Google  said that it will work with other smartphone makers to bring HDR playback support to more devices. 

Popular online-streaming service has already enabled HDR support on select flagship devices like LG G6, LG V30, Samsung Galaxy Note 8, Sony Xperia XZ1 and Sony Xperia XZ Premium.  

With support for HDR, videos offer better picture quality with higher contrast to deliver precise, detailed shadows and stunning image quality with more clarity. According to Google "HDR unlocks the most spectacular image quality we've ever streamed".
