The feature is available only to those who are premium users and pay United States dollars 40 per month for a YouTube TV streaming subscription. The new feature introduced is called as voice remote and it is an incremental update and presently available to some selected users. As the name suggests, you can now control YouTube TV on your phone with only your voice (and a tap of a single button). The feature will be added without a specific app update, but it is not now available to all users. You should also get a popup in the app to tell you about the new feature when it becomes available to you. Recently, the video streaming platform added HDR video support for the Apple iPhone X. With the inclusion of HDR, the YouTube videos will have better contrast and colours as compared to a standard video.
