Google-owned video streaming giant YouTube has put a control over the HDR streaming quality which it used to offer to the viewer’s using YouTube App via smartphones. It has put HDR video quality to 1080p from the prior quality of HDR quality of 1440p.

There have been too many performance issues raised by the users about the scattered and dropped frames while streaming 1440p videos. However, this issue remained unsolved and adding on to this there were few devices which turned out to be incompatible with the high-quality videos. Even Google’s own Pixel 2 is one of the member of the smartphone club which was facing the streaming issues and massive frame drop reports which was a disappointing unusable experience for the users using latest mobile app. Though the limitation put on by YouTube is proving to be effective now, as the quality has been bit degraded so that streaming remains compatible with different smartphones and features.

This new feature is still struggling to stream the videos with the proper brightness without draining the battery life. HDR videos have the capability to support the variety of color schemes whereas regular videos lack this ability. Overall display performance is powerfully vibrant and the representation is the delight to an eye. Though Netflix being the Google’s YouTube video giant’s competitor is showcasing its strong goal to serve the users with the impeccable HDR technology on the mobile phones.
