“Odnoklassniki” announced the introduction of new features in the popular social network introduced support for so-called “vertical” video.
We are talking about videos taken in portrait mode. Research suggests that users hold the smartphone vertically in 97 % of cases for devices based on iOS and in 89 % of cases for devices running Android, including shooting and playback video.
Thanks to the support of vertical video videos recorded in portrait format should now appear in the “Classmates” without the black borders on the sides. This will increase the comfort of their viewing.
“Vertical video take up more space on the screen of the mobile device and also make video content more visible in the ribbon, users and easier to navigate. As a result, the authors of the video and advertisers get more feedback from users, “- said social network.
In addition, Facebook has another new feature – the ability to download mobile covers for groups. On the mobile device cover will adapt to any screen position: horizontal cover invisibly to the user will switch to the one that shows in the web version, and with vertical back.
