YouTube has made a server-side update to allow the app to display 4K videos on lower-resolution devices.

Google has made a small, yet spectacular, change to the YouTube app available for Android devices. THE GSMArena pointed out that the app allows users to display 4K resolution HDR videos at 60 frames per second, even on lower resolution displays.

According to the report, the novelty is probably due to a server-side update, which means that you do not have to have an up-to-date version of the application on your mobile in order to use it. By the way, the update is not quite new, as the feature has been introduced in the YouTube app for iPhones with the debut of iOS 14.

All this can also be good news, because according to them, in the future, high-resolution content will be available on FHD + resolution displays, for example.
