One of the most unique aspects of the Galaxy Z Flip is Flex Mode, which optimizes an app’s UI to take advantage of the phone’s foldable form factor. After showing it back in February, Samsung has finally added Flex Mode support for the YouTube app on its clamshell foldable phone.

Flex Mode optimization for YouTube is now rolling out starting today and will soon be available to all users. In Flex Mode, the upper half of the display will be occupied by the video, while the lower half will show the search, comments, and the remaining part of the app’s UI.

In Flex Mode, square and vertical videos fill nearly the entire top half, while 16:9 videos will be adjusted accordingly to align with the center. Flex Mode optimization on the Galaxy Z Flip is now available with version 15.15.38 of the YouTube app.

I’ve been writing about consumer technology for over three years now, having worked with names such as NDTV and Beebom in the past. Aside from covering the latest news, I’ve reviewed my fair share of devices ranging from smartphones and laptops to smart home devices. I also have interviewed tech execs and appeared as a host in YouTube videos talking about the latest and greatest gadgets out there.
