YouTube Introduces Support For Vertical Videos


YouTubers, who wished the video sharing site had vertical videos, here is some good news for them. The video sharing site YouTube will now display vertical videos on desktop and that too without the black bars on the side. An update was rolled out to the desktop player on July 27, 2018 to automatically adjust the aspect ratio of the video that would suit a computer’s screen size. The feature was already introduced to the mobile version on iOS and Android by removing the black bars on small videos.
But some of the older videos which had the older versions might be affected. The videos in the standard 16:9 vertical videos and the older 4:3 format will be affected. The new update will make YouTube more friendly towards the other aspect ratios apart from 16:9 and will also be more in line with the rival platforms, where the shooting on the mobile phone does not render the black bars.

YouTube had first announced the new update through its user forums on July 27, 2018. However, surprisingly, the new update has not been so popular with the users. A few days after the release of the update, many of the users are complaining that the videos now seem even smaller. Some have also said that parts of the videos are being cut or the quality has lowered. One of the users shared that her video was wider than 640 X 480 but was forced to a 640 X 480 while the video was cut and the quality was lowered.

The user said, “Some YouTube videos just don’t look good when the screen is big. Either give us a way to opt out of this, or fix it.” Google has always made efforts to make YouTube more user friendly and easy to use. In recent times, the search engine has introduced a variety of new features for the video sharing site.

LG G5 Review In-Depth

Can LG take on the Galaxy S7 with a metal design, dual-cameras and an accessory slot? Here's our first LG G5 review, focusing on LG G5 design and build, LG G5 specs, LG G5 cameras and LG G5 software and apps.
Alongside the Galaxy S7, the LG G5 is one of the biggest phones (not literally) to launch in 2016 – and we're not just talking in the Android world. It's one of the heavyweights and LG will be looking to set the market alight with the G5's alternative and innovative modular design.

Oppo RX17 Pro Review: Hands-on

We had time with Oppo’s new RX17 Pro. It may be blue and purple but how different is it to the similar OnePlus 6T and is it worth your time?
Should I Buy The Oppo RX17 Pro?
Oppo has made a solid mid-range phone in the RX17 Pro. Build quality is premium, fast charging is industry-best fast and the display is of high quality.But the price is high at 599€ considering the OnePlus 6T with a better processor starts at £499/€529. And while functioning as it’s supposed to, ColorOS is still unrefined for the western market with far too many changes to Android to recommend over competitors.

BlackBerry KEYone Review

BlackBerry soliders on with a curious Android device that gets nearly everything right. It’s not for everyone though, in fact, it’s not really for anyone. But if you want a physical keyboard you will absolutely love it.
Should I Buy The BlackBerry KEYone?
But then, the KEYone is the best BlackBerry phone for years. It has (finally) successfully melded classic BlackBerry design with the necessary mix of Android and nostalgia. Importantly, the latter is only faint this time – this is a device for 2017, not 2007.If you love your iPhone or Samsung, you’ll hate the KEYone and won’t even consider buying it. But if you’ve made it to the end of this review, chances are you’re weighing up a buy. If you think you’ll love the BlackBerry KEYone, then I’m pretty certain you won’t be disappointed. You’re part of a minority, but finally BlackBerry has a phone for you that doesn’t force you to compromise.

Google Pixel Review

Not everyone wants a phone with a big screen, but most small-screen phones compromise on performance and cameras. Not so with Google’s latest flagship Android phone: Here’s our Google Pixel review.
Joining the ranks of the Pixel C and Chromebook Pixel are Google’s new Pixel phones. We’re reviewing the smaller 5in Pixel here, but you can read our separate Pixel XL review if you’re after a bigger phone.

Microsoft Surface Laptop 2 Review

Is there more to the Surface Laptop 2 than a lick of black paint? Find out in our full review.
Should I Buy The Microsoft Surface Laptop 2? The Surface Laptop 2 is a slightly odd one as it's not a huge upgrade on the original. That said, it comes in at the same price with a few upgrades and the new black colour.You get an 8th-gen Intel processor giving a nice performance boost as well as double the memory for the entry-level model. Battery life is a little down in our test but it's still a decent effort making this still one of the best laptop around.
