Multi-Window: Adding Two Other Snap Sizing Options

I would like Sony to add two other sizing options to snap to fit.


While in Vertical Muti-Window

  • When having YouTube on top and something else on the bottom.
  • It suits 16:9 perfectly
  • It won't fit 21:9, you see letterboxing top and bottom.
  • And won't fit 4:3, you get letterboxing left and right.

Re: Multi-Window: Adding Two Other Snap Sizing Options

Unfortunately, I think this is to do with YouTube (and others) native aspect being 16:9.

The page is snapping to size, but it's snapping to the page aspect ratio given by YouTube and others as 16:9

Only when these apps offer variable native aspects, will you see the snapping fit flush to the media size.

It's a 21:9 phone and should really have 21:9 vertical multi-window.


It's just that Sony hasn't take in consideration. 


Up there I'm watching 21:9 Sony's Jamanji Purchased on GooglePlay Store. 


Of course 16:9 works with well in vertical multi-window, just to accommodate horizontal view getting bars... (as most point out)
