HDR video support is coming to Chrome for Android soon

A couple of devices these days support HDR, though not many apps do. YouTube, Netflix, and Google Play Movies are among those apps that can handle HDR playback, and one more may soon be joining them: Chrome. This information comes courtesy of two commits that were recently spotted on Chromium Gerrit.

These first commit demonstrates that Chrome for Android will be able to “tak[e] the VP9 HDR metadata from the video container and [pass] it to MediaCodec.” The second says it’ll be able to “set color space and HDR metadata in android.media.MediaFormat,” or in plain English, played back if the device supports it.

Google Safe Browsing will soon require apps with personal user or device data to provide a privacy policy, trigger warnings if they don’t

Security is a big deal these days. Google understands this, which is why its Safe Browsing team is implementing even more mandates for applications. Apps that handle user or device data will soon have to provide their own privacy policies. If this requirement isn’t met, warnings may be shown on users’ devices.

Applications that handle personal device and user data, like phone numbers or emails, will be required to prompt users and display their own privacy policy.

[Deal Alert] ZTE’s foldable Axon M is $525 ($200 off) through AT&T over two years

These days, most manufacturers aim for their phones to have things like small bezels, longer screens, and water resistance. ZTE apparently didn’t get this memo when it decided to sell the Axon M, a dual-screen and foldable smartphone, exclusively on AT&T. At its starting price of $ 725, it was a hard sell. Perhaps this $ 200 discount will entice those who were intrigued by the concept, but didn’t want to spend that much money.
