An fascinating change within the YouTube Android app now lets some customers playback movies at up to 4K resolution at 60FPS with HDR on devices with decrease res-displays. The fresh feature is apparently a server-aspect update as I’m the usage of model 15.05.35 of the YouTube app and now not the latest 15.06.35 earn which released on February 13. Last year the iOS YouTube also app gained 4K playback with the rollout of iOS 14.
In my personal testing with a Galaxy S10e playback at 2160p worked successfully though after I switched to a Galaxy Tab S5e playback fared mighty worse with chopped frames ensuing in more of a slideshow than video playback. It remains to be viewed which devices will gain this fresh feature though it’s a welcome addition. Even on smaller FHD+ smartphone screens, the 2160p movies contemplate noticeably sharper with less compression attributable to the larger bitrate.
