YouTube Now Supports 4K Live Streaming


Looking for a crisper YouTube experience? The video-sharing site now supports 4K live streaming for standard and 360-degree videos.

“Supporting this new format will let creators and partners stream incredibly high-resolution video, and let viewers enjoy the clearest picture possible when watching a live stream on 4K-supported devices,” YouTube Senior Product Manager Kurt Wilms wrote in a blog post. “The image quality is just mind-blowing on screens that support it, and in 360 degrees … the clarity can truly transport you.”
