Google Chrome Browser for Android Might Get Support for HDR Videos Soon

Base on informations gotten from a number of commits which were recently spotted on Chromium Gerrit, the Google Chrome Browser for Android might be getting support for HDR video pretty soon.
According to info gotten from this commits, the Google Chrome Browser for Android will be able to extract VP9 HDR metadata from the video container and pass it to the MediaCodec. What this simply means is that your Chrome browser will be able to playback HDR videos on compatible android devices.

HDR actually stands for High Dynamic Range and this helps with an overall improved video output quality by offering superior contrast and better colour accuracy. The HDR screen isn't common yet except on few high end phones like the Samsung Galaxy S8, Samsung Galaxy Note 8, LG V30, Sony Xperia XZ Premium and a few others.

There are also few apps that supports HDR at the moment such as Apps like YouTube, Google Play Movies, and Netflix, but they are limited to a rather small number of content. This technology is still in its growing stage and we expect it to be a lot more popular with time.
