YouTube is (Finally) Getting a Major Facelift for Mobile

Vertical video, the Internet’s premiere injustice, is about to get a little more digestible on your cell phone.

YouTube, which until now has padded vertical videos with inexcusable borders, announced recently that its redesigned mobile app features a vertical video mode that will better display such content.

So, basically, it will play vertical videos in full-screen mode, giving you the same POV as the uploader when they recorded it.

The newly improved app also features a subscriptions tab that allows users to see a stream of new videos from channels they follow, as well as improved editing tools for shooting video directly within the app.

But no, this does not mean it’s OK to shoot vertically. Ever.
