Finally, YouTube is getting a meaningful and beneficial update on Android after a long time. YouTube is finally rolling out 4K video feature update on Android. Whereas the feature was previously introduced on an iOs device only, Android was yet to get the update.
This feature will let users stream videos on 2160p or 4K in the new update. Even if the user’s device cannot stream videos in 4K quality, they can still watch it on 4K HDR 60 fps. Earlier, YouTube videos were only up to 1080p or Full HD on Android because 1080p is the standard resolution for most smartphones.
Before this YouTube managed to roll out the feature where users could watch videos on 1440p. According to XDADevelopers, YouTube has already enabled the option from the server-side update.
The company has seemed to roll the new feature regardless of screen size. If you have a 1080p resolution screen you can still choose the 4K option and the video will be sharper and clearer. Even budget phones can enjoy this feature. The most important thing is users should have a good and stable internet connection to fully experience 4K quality on their Android device.
