It’s been over a year since Google has been teasing bringing High Dynamic Range (HDR) support to Chrome for Android, and it looks like we’re getting one step closer to that reality.
Google recently announced via a blog post that it is adding HDR support to Chrome beginning now. But there’s a catch: it’s only for Windows 10 devices right now. Google does say it will be bringing HDR support in Chrome to other devices in the future, but it doesn’t say when, or which ones will get support first. It stands to reason that Chrome for Android has to be on that list at some point, though.
HDR support means viewers will see deeper blacks, brighter whites, and more robust colors. Of course, to take advantage of the now supported HDR standard, you’ll need a display that supports it, too.
