Xbox One X Streams 4K YouTube

E-mail Print PDF

Xbox One XThe Xbox One X handles 4K video out of the box-- and after an app update it can also stream YouTube in 4K at up to 60fps, providing owners of 4K TVs to invest the latest Microsoft console.

Technically Microsoft has been supporting 4K video since 2016 with the launch of the Xbox One S, the smaller version of the Xbox One with 4K and HDR playback capabilities. However Google took its time to roll out support for the format. Currently only the Xbox One X handles 4K YouTube, but the Xbox One S should receive an update soon enough.

Also coming in the near future is YouTube HDR support on the Xbox One X and S, even if Microsoft still has to announce the actual dates for the relevant update.
