Samsung launched at the beginning of the year Galaxy Z Fliphis second mobile folding. Unlike the Samsung Galaxy Foldthe Z-Flip is designed to be used with content in vertical, working his panel virtually as two small panels independent of one another in some scenarios, such as the camera.

YouTube has opened the veda to the content divided in this way, having updated to allow this division in the Galaxy Z Flip. The news is curious not only for being a major upgrade to a dedicated terminal, but by the path that is opened face-to visualize the content in this new format.


Videos in split-screen, mobile folding

Youtube Flex Mode 0422

YouTube, as we explained from Samsung,
has been updated with a new ‘Flex mode’. This mode allows you to divide the content to be able to see it in the top half of the panel, with the objective of having the mobile supported on a table or any type of surface.

The mode ‘Flex’ of YouTube allows you to view the contents independently in each half of the panel. The top part shows the video facilities, the below the rest of the content

The biggest benefit is that the two halves of the panel are “independent”. That is to say, we can move forward, pause the video and others by touching at the top (where it’s playing) and make the rest of actions such as commenting, give me a like and see related videos in the bottom of the screen. It’s about a 50/50 split of the content to take advantage of the widescreen format of the panel.

Yt Screen Ratio 0422

YouTube says that, with respect to the format of the videos, which are recorded in 16:9 is adjusted to the center while the videos squares or in vertical will occupy all the space of this part of the panel. Samsung aware that this is possible thanks to the integration of part of the code of your Flip in the support libraries of Android, something that has allowed YouTube to be optimized for the Samsung Galaxy Z Flip. The update it is available from today, restricted only to this model.

While this update is the result between the collaboration of Samsung and Google, the door is open to future collaborations in the case that the firms continue betting on similar formats, the establishment of a good basis on how you can see the content in mobile format.
