YouTube is lastly making it possible for HDR assistance on Microsofts Xbox consoles. The HDR support works across existing Xbox One S/ X devices and new consoles like the Xbox Series X and Series S. As long as you have a TELEVISION or display efficient in showing HDR videos, the YouTube app will now automatically switch to output HDR content.
The YouTube app on Xbox has actually never ever supported HDR formerly, despite HDR being available on the PlayStation 4 since 2019. Both the PS5 and Xbox Series X released in November without YouTube HDR assistance, and its still not offered on the PS5 yet– a step back from what was offered on PS4.
The YouTube app on Xbox Series S.
Engadget notes you can verify that HDR is outputting correctly from the YouTube app on Xbox by making it possible for the “stats for geeks” panel (see above). A lot of TVs will also display a HDR timely or switch to a HDR mode when material is played.
Now we simply need more HDR content to end up being offered on YouTube. Some of the finest HDR content on YouTube is still test videos that were uploaded years back. Were starting to see more trailers and videos featured HDR alternatives, but the huge majority of developers do not publish material with HDR.
