Updated December 12, 2017: Microsoft has clarified this release to us: 4K support is now available for the Xbox One X with HDR support coming soon. For Xbox One S users: "The team is working to bring 4K YouTube and HDR support to Xbox One S. We will have more to share soon."
It's a little late to the party, but the official YouTube app for Xbox One X has picked up support for 4K and HDR (coming soon) (via Reddit). Coming more than a year after the Xbox One S launched with support for 4K video, the updated app will now stream 4K content on that console and the newer Xbox One X.
It doesn't look like HDR support is available here just yet, but it is coming soon. However, the updated app does include support for playback for video at 60 frames per second (fps). This comes not long after Google launched YouTube TV on Xbox One.
Curiously, it 4K support isn't coming in an update to the current app. Instead, you can grab the updated app from a separate, newer YouTube app listing. And though it's a separate listing, the app still very much looks the same, albeit with 4K and 60 fps support.
Are you a heavy user of the official YouTube app? Will this be enough to tear you away from third-party alternatives like myTube, which already included 4K support?
