Lots of sites like YouTube and Netflix have started using something called AV1 video files. These let them stream good quality video without needing as much data or bandwidth. Nice right?

But most phones today don’t have specialty hardware to play AV1 well. So the video can get choppy and laggy, especially on cheaper phones. Even expensive new phones can struggle streaming high resolution AV1 sometimes.

Software Update Will Boost AV1 Performance

Well reports say Google is working on an Android update to fix this! In March 2024, they plan to upgrade the AV1 software decoder to a newer one called libdav1d.

Tests show libdav1d plays AV1 video way faster and smoother than the current decoder named libgav1. Like 5 times better! The new software works great even on low-end phones.
