HDR Video Playback Support is coming to Chrome for Android
The proliferation of High Dynamic Range (HDR) video is the next step in improving video quality for all. HDR significantly improves the luminosity range and widens the color space, resulting in greater contrast and color accuracy. Android officially supports HDR playback support starting in Android 7.0 Nougat, though it’s up to individual devices to support a high color depth format and up to individual applications to support extracting HDR metadata from videos. It also requires a compatible display capable of producing the wider color space, of course.
