Xbox One YouTube app gets 4K/60fps support

Tom is probably best known for the 15 years - FIFTEEN YEARS! - he spent at Eurogamer, one of Europe's biggest independent gaming sites. After working his way through the ranks, Tom was Editor-in-Chief over there between 2008 and 2015, before leaving to join Riot Games and work on League of Legends editorial.

These days he writes for a bunch of different places, including AllGamers, where you'll often find him pitching in with news, writing lengthy retro features, and trying to convince us to publish yet more articles about his beloved FIFA Ultimate Team. He can give up any time he wants, it says here.

You can reach Tom through and he's also on Twitter.

Update is available now.

Xbox One owners can finally unlock high-end viewing options for the console's downloadable YouTube app following an update.

Next time you load up the app, you'll be invited to download a patch that adds 4K resolution - aka Ultra HD - support.

The update also enables 60fps playback.

With that, Xbox One S and Xbox One X become probably the most fully rounded media playback consoles on the market, offering UHD functionality for everything including 4K Blu-rays, which the rival PS4 Pro baffling does not support.
