Since launching HDR support on YouTube a year ago, mobile users have been waiting for the green light to watch movies in HDR.

Android phones for which the rollout has been made are the Google Pixel, Xperia XZ Premium, Galaxy S8 and S8 Plus, Galaxy Note 8 and the LG V30.

Fans of HDR content can rejoice though as your choices have just expanded with a new change on YouTube.

"We'll continue working with partners in mobile industry to bring HDR playback to more devices", the spokesperson wrote in an email. And again, it's not like you can watch every Netflix video in HDR since only some of the content in their library now supports it.

If you get exhausted of watching random HDR videos on YouTube, you can also use Netflix, Amazon Prime Video or Vudu to find HDR videos on the supported smartphones. It will soon expand this service to iOS devices such as iPhone, iPad and other devices.
