YouTube for Android optimized display for 18:9 screen
We have seen a number of smartphones with a display ratio of 18:9 screen launched in this year. Many app developers also optimize their app to support the trending aspect ratio. In spite of that, Google also update their YouTube app to support 18:9 aspect ratio.
YouTube for Android recently offers a pinch-to-zoom feature for the previous Pixel 2 XL. The features are now extended to all Android smartphones with an 18: 9 screen. Devices like Galaxy S8, Nova 2i and so on can “pinch” the display when watching video on full screen. The app will then optimize the display for the 18:9 screen.
Now you can finally remove the black bars on the side while watching YouTube.
