Re: YOUTUBE FULL SCREEN NOT WORKING ON S8+AFTER UPDATE

As mentioned yesterday, even i was facing it. Now i m able to get full screen. But instead of that full screen icon, i am allowed with pinch in and pinch out. Let me know if u guys are also seeing the same

To be honest this feature seems comfortable rather than going and searching for that bubble kind of icon

It worked! Thanks!

 

This is better because you can actually zoom to how much you want if some content will go off screen.

 

I was trying to find out why it was different, and saw this was a recent post, so came here.

 

This must apply to us all, I don't remember doing any update on my phone so must have been a YouTube one. 

 

USE TWO FINGERS TO ZOOM AS YOU WOULD ON ANY OTHER APP GUYS! IT SHOULD WORK.

Is the option 100% turned on in Settings→Display→Full screen apps.

 

If so try clearing the cache and data in the app. And try soft reboot by turning the device Off and On. 

 

Current Phone ~ S8 Model: SM-G950F. CsC:BTU.

Earlier, it was fine and I'm not sure since when this happened but the expand icon on YouTube for my Samsung galaxy S8 has disappeared and that's left me really frustrated. No point of have the 18:9 display then. Samsung please fix!

Hmmm... I haven't got the pinch feature, I wonder am I the only one who hasn't got it. Tried many times but no luck.
