YouTube Supports New Optimisation Mode for the Samsung Galaxy Z Flip

Samsung and Google have 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.

Samsung says that with the Galaxy Z Flip’s unique folding system, users can set the device on any surface and watch their favourite YouTube channel hands-free. And now, this hands-free experience is taken up to the next level with Flex-mode compatibility.

YouTube’s Flex-mode optimised app ensures that videos can be adjusted to fit in the top half of the screen. The bottom screen can then be used to search for other videos, read descriptions and write comments.

According to Samsung, Galaxy users can get up to 4 months of free YouTube Premium and enjoy benefits such as ad-free viewing, offline play and background play.

“For the past 10 years, the Samsung-Google partnership has been the driving force behind so many of this industry’s most important innovations,” said Justin Hume, Director of Integrated Mobility at Samsung South Africa.

“Now, as we start a new decade, our partnership is more important than ever, as we work together to pioneer a new generation of breakthrough mobile experiences.”
