Will the Google Play App be updated to support 4K & HDR?

With Google now providing free upgrades to 4K and HDR versions of content, I would love to see Roku update the app!

Google updates its app, not Roku.

This is also true for most of the apps.on the Roku.
Yeah, I got some Rokus.

AFAIK, this has nothing to do with the Roku Google Play Channel, it's on Googles Server Side.
