The YouTube app now plays videos without black bars on the side
Since 2017 I / O developer conference, Google has been busy fulfilling the promises it made to the world regarding its applications and services. Most of the applications in the Google suite and the popular Android operating system have been adorned with a constant series of updates. The YouTube app received many considerable updates, with the latest one related to the VR180 immersive video format. Today, there is another.
The update we are talking about today is about adjusting the aspect ratio of a video. The application can now adjust the aspect ratio of the video, regardless of the format in which it was recorded. Therefore, a video shot vertically through a smartphone will appear vertically in the YouTube player window by default, without black bars.
The aspect ratio of any video will be adjusted according to the device you are viewing. This should work for smartphone users with a screen ratio of 18: 5: 9, such as the Samsung Galaxy S8 and LG G6, to use the full screen space for YouTube videos. This also means that you will not have to go full screen every time to enjoy the videos at their best.
The update is slowly developing around the world and will hit your phone shortly if you have not picked up the update.
