The Smartphones are now shifting towards the extreme bezel-less display those have around 18:9 ratio. The powerful hardware configuration using in smartphones make them easy to handle taller and wider displays. The apps those are meant to display the content of on 16:9 ratio display won’t able to fit on 18:9 smartphones, for example, incase of Samsungs’Note8 and iPhone X. Both the phones have 18:5:9 aspect ratio without black borders.
Some smartphones user interface has built with a feature to customize the aspect ratio to play the videos in full fill screen mode without any black bars at the sides.
Recently, YouTube added an update feature Pinch-to-Zoom in its YouTube App. It means those users don’t have an inbuilt feature to change the aspect ratio in their UI can now watch the videos in full-screen. The YouTube pinch-to-zoom feature allows cropping & zooming for YouTube videos. It will help to extend the video size to fill all unused space showing on big screens.
The user will find this feature in YouTube’s version 12.44. This features really helps to enjoy the videos on fullscreen but it may crop some areas of videos while zooming…
