YouTube has launched a new update to reap the benefits of the Galaxy Z Flip’s “Flex Mode,” permitting the app to separate the display in two.
Whereas watching a YouTube video on Samsung’s new flip telephone whereas the telephone is partly unfolded, the highest and backside of the display will now change into separate shows. The highest of the display reveals the precise video, and the underside portion of the display shows the YouTube interface, together with feedback and different movies you possibly can flick through.
Samsung says it labored collaboratively with Google’s engineers to develop Flex Mode and that the split-screen function may be built-in into different apps. In February, Google confirmed that the Flex Mode was not unique to Samsung and that different foldable telephones may have the function built-in as properly.
Samsung’s Galaxy Z Flip launched again in February with a retail value of $1,380. Nevertheless, reception for the foldable smartphone has been blended. My colleague Dieter Bohn reviewed the Galaxy Z Flip, and though he was impressed with the telephone’s “solid-feeling” hinge design, he mentioned the Z Flip — together with its present competitors — is extra like “an costly experiment than an actual product.”
