The YouTube Android app now has 4K HDR playback support. 4K support is available for a while on iOS and now Android users can watch videos in 4K HDR as long as they upload this resolution or higher and support HDR. So far, Android users can only watch videos in the YouTube app at a maximum resolution of 1440p. This is the case even if their display supports high resolutions on their phone, and the video is uploaded in 4K. However, this has changed with the latest update for 4K HDR support.

To see if you've got YouTube 4K HDR streaming support on your Android phone, go to any YouTube video that has been uploaded in 4K and click on the three dot menu icon in the upper right corner of the video box. Do Select Quality and you should be able to view 2160p60 HDR as one of the other resolution options. The lowest option is 144p60 HDR.

In our app (16.06.34), which was updated on February 18, this update has been added - if you do not see this feature, check to make sure you are using the latest version of the app Are You can see if you have any updates pending in the Google Play Store. If you can't wait to get 2160p60 HDR support on your Android device, you can also download the APK Mirror version of the app, and get the feature right now.
