Xperia z5 premiums youtube 2k+ resolution?

It would be nice if Sony would enable 2k/4k video playback for youtube on the z5 premium. Google cardboard would at least look acceptable

That's not a Google restriction but Google/YouTube

@Zane1

As Uliwooly stated, on any phone the YouTube app will not give the option to view videos in a resolution higher than 1080. You can contact Google about this at YouTube app by tapping on the triple dots icon and choose "Help & Feedback"

That's not accurate, open a 4K video on youtube > menu > quality > you won't have the option to select 4K, that's a Google restriction, I'll test netflix later.
