We do not always have the technical information to know if our Android mobile device can play streaming video in 4K, so with Speedtest, we are going to achieve it most efficiently.
And although YouTube already allows playing videos in 4K, maybe our mobile refuses, so there is no better way than going through Speedtest to verify it.
Yes, Speedtest, that application that we have always used from its web version as in the Android version to check the ping of our connection or the upload or download speed, is the one that will allow us to know if our mobile can play streaming in 4K.
How to know if your phone can play streaming videos in 4K?
Speedtest brought to iOS the ability to measure the video streaming experience. Today Ookla has updated the Android version so you can test your phone’s video capabilities.
When you update to the latest version of Speedtest on Android you’re going to be met with a new video tab to get started with the test.
After a series of tests, such as adaptive bitrate, 4K, and some videos that are increasing their resolution, it will show at the end what is the maximum resolution that your connection can play.
Apart from knowing the maximum video resolution, Speedtest also offers extra information such as buffering capacity or loading time when we click on video playback on a website.
An interesting feature is to measure the playback speed without having to check the speed of the WiFi connection or to check the router model installed in the house where we are or in our own home.
This new Speedtest update to test the ability of your connection to play videos in 4K is now available on the Google Play Store.
