Google has been continuously working hard towards making the mobile experience of YouTube better for its users. Thinking about this point, the search giant has now started displaying YouTube videos vertically and properly as a complete full screen version for its Android users.
As an alternative to rotating the video content 90 degrees by tapping the full screen, which is not useful at all, the updated YouTube app for Android adjusts the videos vertically. With older versions of the app, for example the YouTube v10.25 which is currently available on google play, vertical videos becomes only a little magnified in landscape mode.
The new vertical video orientation, which is full-screen,and it comes with YouTube v10.28, which has yet not been introduced internationally. A Google-signed epic can however be sideloaded ( by means of Android Police), if the users do not have patience to try out the new feature. No information has been given as to when the feature will roll out to iOS.
Earlier this month, Google launched the 60 frames per second (fps) video playback feature to its iOS and Android apps. The feature was first introduced for the desktop users and was in the beginning supported by Safari and Chrome browsers. Any live stream on YouTube at 60fps was transcoded into stream of 720p60 and 1080p60, with the rollout of 60fps live-streaming, which showed up fast-paced video and smooth playback for gaming.
The previous month, Google unveiled the YouTube Newswire. Its advantage will be that it will draw on videos on YouTube which have been contributed by the users such as those which have been essential sources for events such as the protests in Ferguson, Missouri and the Arab Spring uprisings.
