Expose the approximate range of colors supported by the user agent and the output device in a CSS Media Query.
Wide color gamut screens are more and more popular and Blink provides no way for Web contents to discover the capabilities of the output device with regards to supported color gamut. The media team has been looking into a larger API in the form a the Media Capabilities but for compatibility, we would like to launch an API that is compatible with what WebKit launched and later improve upon this.
Interoperability and Compatibility Risk
Web developers: Positive signal
Edge: No public signal
Firefox: No public signal
The feature has already launched in Safari. We are not aware of signal from Edge or Firefox. We got positive signal from web developers that are interested to provide content optimised for the color gamut of the display.
Because the feature has a low footprint and has already launched in another browser, we believe that the compatibility risks should be very low.
Ongoing technical constraints
Will this feature be supported on all six Blink platforms (Windows, Mac, Linux, Chrome OS, Android, and Android WebView)?

That's interesting, thanks for the info!
We actually have metrics for this. Android is the only platform where we
seem to only have srgb as an output. Not sure why.
