YouTube for Android will now display videos in vertical full screen

Vertical videos? They're no longer a problem on YouTube for Android

By Anthony Garreffa from Jul 25, 2015 @ 2:32 CDT

YouTube for Android previously only supported landscape video playback, so if the video was filmed vertically, it would have some large black bars and it would simply look atrocious. But with YouTube for Android v10.28, vertical videos are supported, with the tall clips now taking up the entire frame.
