Samsung has announced the new YouTube experience on its Galaxy Z Flip. "Samsung and Google reached a new level in their collaborative efforts to bring a fresh user experience design that fits the innovative form factor of the Galaxy Z Flip," the company said.


In the new experience, you can watch YouTube videos hands-free. Not only is the feature hands-free but, the display evenly splits into two 4-inch screens. You can now watch the video on the top half of the display. On the other hand, you can use the bottom half to search for other videos, read descriptions and write comments.

Additionally, the Flex mode-optimized YouTube app also manages the aspect ratio of the video. You can adjust the way the video fits in the top half of the screen. Square and vertical videos will nearly fill the entire space, while 16:9 videos will adjust to the centre.

But that's not all...


Samsung and Google’s engineers have redesigned the app from the operating system level. This included the integration of the Android Support Library. This makes it easier to bring Flex mode to more third-party services. Through collaboration, Samsung has worked closely with the Android developer community to drive innovation for foldable devices.

Galaxy Z Flip users can download the Flex mode-optimized YouTube app from the Google Play Store starting from April 22 and enjoy the enhanced features that come with the latest update. Additionally, Galaxy users can also get up to 4 months of free YouTube Premium and enjoy benefits such as ad-free viewing, offline play, and background play.

"In the year ahead," Samsung said, "-we will continue to work closely with Google to pioneer the next wave of mobile innovations. This will change the way we communicate with the world."
