I can also confirm this issue, even if the App has a setting to force fullscreen! In Android 8 it worked with out any Problems. Screenshot_20181018-155418.png

Is Google play movies affected like this? Looks like watching video with that white bar would be mega distracting

Re: soft keys don't hide in Pie

Same here. And I hate it. The whole design is a mess, p.e. The shortcuts by rolling down from top bar. Wish I could downgrade... But without rooting and stuff.

Re: soft keys don't hide in Pie

Why can't SONY just let us hide or disable this feature? Make no sense to have fully auto function which is so buggy 😡
