YouTube Rolls Out 4K Video Support for All Android Devices
It looks like the popular video-sharing platform YouTube has quietly released a new update allowing people to stream 4K/60p videos on all mobile devices, even on the ones that do not have an Ultra HD display.
Although people using devices with a lesser display resolution won’t get the same video quality as they would with a higher resolution screen, turning on the 4K video playback option will still benefit them.
As per a trusted source, this change was discussed late last week on the YouTube subreddit first, where people observed that the option to select 4K video playback was now available to them even though their devices didn’t have a 4K display.
Let’s assume a user has a Full HD+ phone; if they boost the video resolution to its max, doing so should still deliver an improved visual experience than viewing a 1080p video. Although needless to say, having a 4K device would provide the best visual experience.
Currently, it seems as if this new feature is available, particularly on the YouTube Android app. Also, it is still unclear if all devices with a low resolution can now access the option of selecting 4K video playback or if it’s still restricted to Full HD or Full HD+ screens only.
In addition to this, for the time being, it is also unknown if the ability to stream 4K videos on devices that don’t have an Ultra HD display is a voluntary change or one that might vanish shortly.
Till now, Google has not commented on this recent change, although a lot of users look happy with this, and it would probably not go well if the platform removes this feature abruptly.
WRAPPING IT UP
YouTube seems to have rolled out a new update quietly, adding the ability to watch 4K videos even on phones that lack an Ultra HD display. Undoubtedly, many users are delighted with this change. They claim that streaming 4K videos offers them a better experience than watching 1080p content, even though they don’t have a 4K display. However, Google has not commented on this change yet, and it remains unknown if this is a planned change or one that will go away in the near future. It also remains unknown if all low-resolution devices can access the 4K video streaming option or if it is still restricted to Full HD or Full HD+ screens only. Well, it looks like we’ll have to wait to find out answers to these questions.
