Devices Supporting YouTube / Google Play Movies with 4k, HDR, Atmos

Sorry to start a new thread, but I searched, and have been looking for a while on an answer, but what devices support YouTube / Google Play Movies with 4k, HDR, Atmos? I have an Apple TV 4k, but the app Google supplied Apple is rubbish.
I've also got a Panasonic UHD player which does 4k, no Atmos, and a zidoo, which apparently I could try hacking, but I can't figure how.

Native frame rate would be preferred too.

I even tried just googling and the Dolby site. All I have found so far is some TV's have an inbuilt app that does, but nothing dongle or device wise.

Hah. Is it that bleak? Stuff trying to get 4k Atmos and HDMI out on a PC. Too costly and fiddly

Ok to be more specific, an off the shelf device that I can plug into the HDMI port on an AVR...

Did you look into the Nvidia Shield TV Pro?

I did at one stage. The newer one isn't available in Australia yet. I might dig into that again - I guess as it is "official" (I think) Android TV it might.

I can't believe though what an utter mess all these streaming devices / services are. And fragmented. Geez I still honestly love blu-ray and UHD... So much cleaner, simpler, and always best, known results...

Cheers.

After some further research, nope, no VP9 profile 2 support...

No wonder the movies I have on Google play movies were all freebies...

EDIT: OK, even on googles own device (Chromecast Ultra) it is junk. Google Play movies 4k rec 709 only...

The Fire Stick 4k has the YouTube app. But it only does purchases in HDR10 stereo.

Hmm. Reading more, I think as of right now, Google themselves don't supply any of their google play movies with atmos - but was coming as of end of last year. I didn't realize it was that bad though, stereo only. What a joke!

But native youtube 4k hdr atmos does seem to work on chromecast ultra, I believe.

Most Sony TV's from 2017 to now with Android TV support VP9 Profile 2 platform which allows for HDR10 for Youtube and Google Play Movies. I'm not sure about other manufacturers that have Android TV on their Displays.

None of the Nvidia Shield models support HDR10 for Youtube and Google Play Movies, for they do not support VP9 Profile 2.

Sony XBR55X900E
Marantz SR7010/Marantz MM7025
Oppo UDP-203 - Nvidia Shield
XBox One X

Yeah, so anyone using a 10k+ projector is out of luck... At any rate, tv apps - easier to buy easily replaceable peripherals than an entire TV if a new feature for decoding is required.

Yes, I have a Sony 900E from 2017. It plays HDR10, 4K 60hz from YouTube. I don't know about Atmos. What do you watch on YouTube that is HDR, 4K? Only demo clips?
I just don't see the need for 4K HDR on video clips of someone's face talking into a camera. If I was going to stream any movie in 4K, HDR it would be from Vudu. (I don't use Amazon or Netflix)

Yep, pretty much the demo clips, but I prefer to download them for a better image quality.

Vudu has Atmos but i don't know about the other streaming apps.

Plus I would have thought Google play movies was supposed to be a serious service (and your content appears under YouTube). Apparently not...

I mainly watch official stuff on YouTube, few sports channel contents etc.

These video streaming services are changing all the time. A connection between GPM and YT might be true. The only movies I have on GPM or Vudu were free offers, or codes from disks to get the digital copy.
I can't (usually) stream 4K content due to my slow DSL connection, but Vudu 4K vids play at slower speeds. I'm not sure why only Vudu will work for me, but I think it must be a low bit rate stream even though it's 4K. (I'm not sure how that works, or what the relationship is between streaming bit rate and data bandwidth (internet speed).
