Along with this, YouTube will also be displaying the letter HDR in the quality of the video. Recently, the video streaming platform added HDR video support for the Apple iPhone X. With the inclusion of HDR, the YouTube videos will have better contrast and colours as compared to a standard video. The device will have a dashboard that will help you keep track of the amount of time that you spent on each app.
