Xiaomi is still sending out the stable global Android 10 update to the Redmi Note 8 Pro but the update appears to have removed Netflix HDR support. Complaints have also been made over the lack of HD streaming support on Amazon Prime Video in spite of the Android 10 update bringing Widevine DRM L1 certification.

Last month, Xiaomi began sending out the stable global Android 10 update to the Redmi Note 8 Pro. The rollout has been a slow one, and owners of the phone around the world are still receiving the OTA, but the update appears to have broken something.

Prior to the Android 10 update, the Redmi Note 8 Pro lacked Widevine DRM L1 certification, which meant owners of the phone were unable to stream HD content from Netflix and other such services. The Android 10 update fixed that but appears to have also disabled HDR support for Netflix. This means that Redmi Note 8 Pro owners on Android 10 are able to watch HD content on Netflix, but without HDR.

Also, going by user feedback on the Mi forums, while the Android 10 update implemented Widevine DRM L1, the Redmi Note 8 Pro is still unable to stream HD content on Amazon Prime. The whole thing is a mess, really, as the phone supports HD streaming on Netflix, and HDR on YouTube.

I like tech, simple as. Half the time, you can catch me writing snarky sales copy. The rest of the time, I'm either keeping readers abreast with the latest happenings in the mobile tech world or watching football. I worked as both a journo and freelance content writer for a couple of years before joining the Notebookcheck team in 2017. Feel free to shoot me some questions on Twitter or Reddit if it so tickles thine fancy.
