Fullscreen on apps like Netflix and Amazon

Do we have a way to run streaming apps like Netflix in full screen? For example, I have attached 2 captures; one from YouTube and the other from Netflix. YouTube videos can be 'zoomed in' to show full screen content which actually takes into account the punch hole but content on Netflix has a black bar on top where the punch hole is.

This actually defeats the purpose of a tall screen with 21:9 aspect ratio, doesn't it?

This will on depend on the movies and if that movie supports 21:9.

 

YouTube you can 'zoom to fill' with a pinch gesture meaning you still cut some of the video off.

 

I'm sure these apps will support true 21:9 when it is more common etc.

Of course. Almost all videos get 'cut-off' when zooming in using pinch (YouTube). But it's nice to have the option to view content in full screen.
Anyway, basically, the deal is that the app must support an aspect ratio of 21:9, yes?

Correct.

It is purely a support thing.

Hello there,

Here's a screenshot from Amazon Prime. As you can see, the video is not using the complete screen and the video has been zoomed completely.

Ok. Got it. No 21:9 videos to watch except YouTube movie trailers.

Can you tell whether 21:9 video that we shoot does final output file also save in 21:9 format.

Yup. I believe all Google media apps work in 21:9. 'Photos' does. So videos recorded in 21:9 with the camera and played in the 'Photos' app will be in full screen.

Re: Fullscreen on apps like Netflix and Amazon

  • Thanks. For the information. 

I was looking at purchasing as it is sleek n handy. But current Moto z2 play owner even after giving promises that they will update to Android 9 Pie by March 2019 but wont now. Will they give timely Android Q&R updates for Vision ? N no 21:9 videos too see. So it normal phone with punch hole to show people n click some cinematic hd videos.

What is ur experience in using this phone in physical dynamics. Is it handy. ?
