YouTube has spent the past decade fighting against VERTICAL VIDEOS. But that never really stopped any of us from filming stuff vertically with our phones . . . if anything, thanks to Snapchat, we’re doing it MORE now than we used to.
So YouTube FINALLY gave up. They just announced they’ll be rolling out changes to their website and app where vertical videos won’t have those ugly black bars on either side . . . instead, the player will just adjust for them.
If you go on YouTube, you may already see the changes . . . if not, they should roll out to you in the next few days. (CNet)
