It’s a good time for HDR on Google Chrome for Android,since it is about to join YouTube and Netflix among the apps that can support HDR playback. In case you didn’t know or were not aware, HDR (high dynamic range) ramps up the color and contrast significantly compared to standard dynamic range to offer a more realistic picture.
Better pictures are something we can all get behind. We are all on an endless search for a better picture. We can always improve quality.
Of course, as you probably know, you’ll require a HDR-capable smartphone to try it out (you know, something like LG and Samsung’s flagships, Sony Xperia XZ1, and Sony Xperia XZ Premium). And aside from that caveat, you’ll also need to be on the lookout for video carrying the HDR tag, which is lacking at present, but you should see more soonish. The proliferation of High Dynamic Range (HDR) video is happening. Google Play Movies & TV, Netflix, and YouTube support HDR playback on a handful of devices though their libraries are limited for the moment. That will change soon like we said. Anyway, with the future Chrome update, you’ll be able to search the entirety of the web for content.
