HDR video is created to improve picture quality, as it's able to produce richer colors and offer better contrast between the bright areas of the screen and darker parts of the image.

You'll be able to spot HDR-enabled content in the app by looking for an [HDR] tag in the video's title. As you might know, HDR makes the picture more authentic and vivid with more colorful representation.

The problem thus far for the nascent format has been the slow trickle of content that has yet to yield a significant torrent for thirsty HDR TV owners.

That being said, the more devices and streaming services that support the format will send a clear message to content creators that the world is not only ready for HDR content, but it's chomping at the bit for it. But if you're in the market for a new TV, there are a number of options available today, including TVs from Sony, Samsung, Vizio, Panasonic, Philips, LG, TCL, Hisense, and others. It did mention one title that's going to have support, the Harry Potter prequel titled Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them.

Currently, the best way to get 4K HDR content from Play Movies to your TV is through the Chromecast Ultra, but Google isn't stopping other supported platforms from accessing the same functionality. Companies like Amazon and Netflix have supported it for quite some time, and now Google is now offering support, too. Also, for now, the feature is only available in the USA and Canada.
