New Delhi: Google has added the recently released OnePlus Nord to the YouTube Signature Device list.

The YouTube Signature Devices programme certifies smartphones that, according to Google, deliver the best YouTube-viewing experience, reports XDA Developers.

Features like HDR video, 4K video recording, high frame rate playback, good DRM performance, and VP9 codec decoding are among the required features that YouTube Signature Devices must support.

Google said it works closely with smartphone manufacturers to verify these phones meet the minimum performance standards. It’s only after a phone has passed through Google’s rigorous testing criteria that it earns the YouTube Signature Device badge.

Earlier, OnePlus 8, OnePlus 8 Pro, LG V60 ThinQ and Motorola Edge+ devices have been added to YouTube’s Signature Device list.
