YouTube now supports HDR video on Apple’s latest iPhones

  YouTube now supports HDR video on Apple’s latest iPhones YouTube has added support for HDR video playback on Apple’s iPhone X, 8, and 8 Plus. YouTube has plenty of great demo material for seeing the improved picture for yourself: just search “HDR” and you’ll find no shortage of exotic scenery, cityscapes, food, animals, and other demo reel material. My iPhone switched over to HDR automatically once I started streaming a video, but you can also tap the icon with three vertical dots to manually enable it. Note that since it’s really all about color, brightness, and contrast, you don’t have to pick 1080p to enjoy HDR; it’s also supported at lower resolutions like 480p.

YouTube is adding a new music ID feature. © Provided by CNET YouTube is adding a new music ID feature. Ever heard a new song you love featured in a YouTube video, but had no idea what it's called? YouTube is now rolling out a new feature called "Music in this video" that will make it easier to figure it out.

When you're watching a video with a song you love, click "Show more" beneath the video for the song's name, artist, writers, licensors and a link to the official artist channel or music video when available.

The new feature makes ID'ing music easier, but it also helps credit the artists and labels behind the music. It's an expansion of the current Content ID system, which makes it easier for creators to claim ownership of their content.

YouTube direct messaging moves from mobile to desktop .
YouTube has been flirting with in-app messaging for a bit on mobile, and now it's finally ready to roll out private video messaging to the web. It looks pretty easy to use too, according to 9to5Google. In the upper righthand corner where your account avatar resides, you'll find a new button sitting between the ones for YouTube apps and notifications. Click it and you'll find a new way to share videos on the platform.Now, this makes less of an impact on desktop where copy and pasting (or reflexively right-clicking on the player for a timestamp code) is super simple, than it does mobile.
