Designed to help you figure out what smartphones offer the best YouTube viewing experience on your mobile device, the Signature device list hits all the benchmarks Google has set for “premium” viewing experience.
The YouTube Signature Device list basically “certifies” Android smartphones for those who may need a fast refresher that provides a “best-in – class” experience on the online streaming platform. A device must meet other requirements before it can be legally “certified,” including being able to support high frame rate video, 360-degree videos, and HDR among others.
But that’s not all, since OEM devices also need to be compatible with VP9 profile 2 for video decoding. 0This is great because it means that your device consumes up to 30% less bandwidth without affecting the overall quality of video playback. YouTube’s own DRM for premium video content served via YouTube Premium must also be supported by signature devices. More about what it takes to be added as a Signature Device can be found here.
And with all that in mind, whether you own the OnePlus 8, 8 Pro, Motorola Edge+, or LG V60 ThinQ, you will now have the best experience when watching your smartphone’s YouTube videos.
The YouTube Signature Device list has grown to over 50 devices from the biggest Android OEMs out there since its inception in 2018 — which now includes the most recent OnePlus 8 series devices. With the handset set to go on sale across the globe, it’s nice to know you’ll be able to enjoy YouTube on your Oppo Find X2 Pro at the highest degree of fidelity.
