While the world is still catching up to 4K content, Google-owned video streaming platform YouTube has apparently started testing streaming of 8K content on its platform.

According to a report by Android Police, the version 2.12.08 of the YouTube app brings “limited support” to Android TVs running on Android 10 and above. This means that smart TVs that are running on any of the previous Android update versions will not get the support.

Here is the complete changelog of the YouTube TV app:

• Display YouTube Music splash screen

Cast Connect support

• Limited 8K support to Android 10 and up

• Improved resolution selection

• Fixed incorrect date and time issues

• Various other platform improvements

Recently, Google confirmed that it is adding support for artificial intelligence and machine learning algorithms which will automatically add chapters to a video. Currently, creators are supposed to manually add the chapters on a particular timestamp to each video at the time of uploading it.

Google has confirmed that they have started testing the new AI machine learning algorithm for YouTube which will use machine learning to identify texts in video to auto generate video chapters.

The feature is currently being tested on a small number of videos randomly. Google is also giving cerators the option to opt out of the experiment in case their videos are getting affected with the auto chapter feature.
