Netflix has quietly updated the list of smartphones which are compatible with HDR and HD videos on its platform. As expected, the HDR list includes the latest OnePlus 7 and OnePlus 7 Pro phones. The list of phones with HD support is even longer and covers some of the recent mid-range phones and old generation phones.

Netflix’s list of HD compatible phones includes Samsung Galaxy A10, A20, A30, A40 and A50. It also features Google’s Pixel 3, Pixel 3 XL, Pixel 3a, Pixel 3a XL, Pixel 2, and Pixel 2 XL. HDR is coming to Razer Phone 2, Huawei P30, Huawei P30 Pro, OnePlus 7, OnePlus 7 Pro and Honor Play.

To watch HD and above content, check your Netflix subscription plan. According to Netflix, users need internet connection speed of 25 megabits per second or higher and streaming quality set to high to stream in HD.

Netflix’s HDR support is now becoming a new feature in modern phones. Just earlier this month, OnePlus extensively marketed its partnership with Netflix and HDR10+ support on the OnePlus 7 Pro. Not just OnePlus, Xiaomi fans have long demanded HDR support on phones such as Poco F1.

The high definition support on a phone comes via Widevine license, a standard used by the likes of Netflix and Amazon Prime Video to identify compatible phones.

PewDiePie vs T-Series: YouTuber may lose the race to 100 million subscribers

Published

on

The YouTube battle may be quiet now, but the race continues between PewDiePie and T-Series. The two YouTube channels are coming close to achieving a major milestone of 100 million subscribers. But the Indian music label will most likely beat the Swedish YouTuber to achieve this feat.

T-Series started and is continuing to defeat PewDiePie for the top YouTube spot. The Indian YouTube channel is now leading with over 95 million subscribers. PewDiePie is behind T-Series with a difference of 800,000 subscribers. According to the pace at how both YouTube channels are gaining subscribers, they would soon reach the 100 million mark in less than a month.

According to social media analytics page, Social Blade, T-Series is predicted to reach 100 million subscribers as early as May 21. PewDiePie, on the other hand, will reach this spot a little late on June 2. The Swedish YouTuber has long held the YouTube crown but soon saw threat from the rising popularity of T-Series.

The start of this YouTube battle began last year in October with both channels hovering around 67 million subscribers. It has been a crazy ride ever since. PewDiePie and T-Series’ YouTube battle has so far been a mix of memes, bizarre campaigning, and even legal.

Following a Delhi High Court order, two of PewDiePie’s diss videos were removed from YouTube. T-Series argued that the diss tracks namely ‘Congratulations’ and ‘Bitch Lasagna’ contained defamatory remarks against Indians. These videos are no longer available in India.

Google-owned YouTube on Tuesday announced that India was its largest and fastest growing audience in the world with more than 265 million monthly active users.

“India is now both our biggest audience and one of our fastest growing audiences in the world. YouTube today has become the first stop for users to consume content, whether they’re looking for entertainment or information,” said Susan Wojcicki, YouTube’s CEO, at the company’s annual flagship event “Brandcast” .

In the past one year, YouTube’s consumption on mobile has increased to 85 % — with 60 % of the watch time coming from outside of the six largest metros in the country.

YouTube creators have become effective storytellers, with more than 1,200 Indian creators crossing the one million subscriber-milestone.

“Just five years ago, there were only two creators with a million subscribers on the platform,” said Wojcicki.

Online music streaming app YouTube Music has also hit three million downloads within a week of its launch in India.

Wojcicki noted that by 2020, it is expected that 500 million Internet users in India will consume online video both for entertainment, sharing and learning.

“User behaviour has shifted massively to mobile video and therein lies the opportunity for marketers today. With the growth of YouTube in India, it is an amazing time to be a marketer as you can do full-funnel growth, creative storytelling and cross-channel planning easily,” said Mark Patterson, CEO, GroupM Asia Pacific.

Facebook will stop suggesting you to wish dead friends happy birthday

Published

on

Facebook says it will use artificial intelligence to help find profiles of people who have died so their friends and family members won’t get, for instance, painful reminders about their birthdays.

The social network said Tuesday that it is also adding a “tributes” section to accounts that have been memorialised, that is, designated as belonging to someone who has died. Friends and family members will be able to write posts and share photos in this section to remember their loved one.

Facebook is also tightening its rules around who can memorialise an account. Until now, anyone could do this by sending the company proof that someone had died, such an obituary. Now, it will have to be a friend or family member.

The company made the changes in response to users’ experiences with seeing their loved ones’ profiles pop up on Facebook after they had died. Sometimes, the company said people might not be ready to memorialize a person’s profile immediately after their death — it can feel like a big step they are not ready to take. Facebook says it will use AI to prevent that profile from showing up in places it might cause distress, such as in birthday reminders.

Chief Operating Officer Sheryl Sandberg, whose husband died unexpectedly in 2015, is one of those users. She said seeing tributes to her late husband on Facebook have helped her cope with her grief. “I want his memory to stay alive,” she said. “Remember specific and wonderful things.”
