Google Pixel is one of the amazing smartphones ever seen. Google has always given extra attention on their Pixel and Nexus devices. As a part of an agreement, Pixel and Nexus are the first devices that will get Android latest updates prior to all other Android based devices. This is not the only benefit of using Google devices but there are others too. If you are a Google Pixel user, you would be glad to know that Google is providing YouTube HDR support to Pixel devices through a software update.
Google is Providing YouTube HDR Support to Pixel Devices through Software Update
The fact is Google is taking HDR support very seriously for Pixel devices. The same has been extended on famous videos platform YouTube. There is nothing wrong to say that it’s one of the finest features that it is one of the widely discussed topics on the internet. The feature has recently been made available on Xperia XZ and on Samsung Galaxy S8 as both these devices have hardware support available for the same. As the Pixel devices don’t have the hardware support available for this, Google has already made it clear that they will bring YouTube HDR to both Pixel devices through a software update.
It is quite true that several users of Galaxy S8 and Xperia XZ users haven’t given positive reviews of YouTube HDR videos. The feedback of users is not as good as Google expected it. Users have reported problems such as frame drops and stuttering playbacks. This clearly indicates that there are some bugs that Google will surely address before providing YouTube HDR support to Pixel devices through a software update.
Google is said to work very hard to ensure that there will be no performance degradation of the device after providing it. However, what impact it will have on Pixel devices cannot be said perfectly. If experts are to be believed, Pixel devices have to work hard to play such videos mainly because they are based on software. There are also chances of devices heat more than a limit.
