By The Way, YouTube Now Supports HDR On Xbox Consoles

If you're anything like us, you probably use the YouTube app on your Xbox console fairly often, and so it's pleasing to confirm that the app has recently introduced support for displaying HDR content on supported displays.

We actually think we noticed this back in December - but we couldn't confirm it back then across every device - but now FlatPanelsHD has officially tested the Xbox One and Xbox Series X with success.

"YouTube HDR has finally arrived on Xbox. FlatpanelsHD can confirm that it works on both the Xbox One generation (confirmed on Xbox One S) and the new Xbox Series X/S generation (confirmed on Xbox Series X)."

If you're not sure what HDR actually does, it's a technique for improving the lighting and colour of videos, ultimately improving the quality. Most modern TVs can display it, and it's commonly used in games as well.
