When presenting its second foldable smartphone, the Galaxy Z Flip, Samsung showed some of the applications that could be used when the smartphone was opened up to a 90 degree angle.
The so-called Flex Mode, as it was dubbed at launch, has now received official support for Youtube. The implementation was finalized with Google, and users of the foldable can now take advantage of it.
How Flex Mode works on Youtube
In its last update, the Youtube app received this support so that the screen can be “broken” into two four inches. In this way, the top part of the screen is used to watch the video and the bottom part to read the descriptions or even read and make comments.
With this optimization, videos on Youtube are adapted regardless of the “aspect ratio”, as you can see in the image below. Vertical and square videos will fill the screen, while those recorded in 16: 9 take with the usual black bars.
Those who have a Galaxy Z Flip can now use it in Flex Mode starting today. The mode may seem insignificant to some, but it can certainly be interesting if only to avoid having to use any support to hold the device on a surface.
The Samsung Galaxy Z Flip arrived in Portugal for a price of 1529 €, which means that it is not for any wallet. The equipment does not leave any technological enthusiast indifferent, but the price will be the biggest impediment for many to consider it an option.
