Watch movies full screen?

JUMP TO SOLUTION

Just wanted to know if there was a way to watch movies I have in my google movies library to playback full screen? I can tap the screen and hit the maximize button to enlarge the video, but it is still not full screen. Infact its the same for all video platforms EXCEPT YouTube for some reason. I even went to the "full screen apps" portion in settings and set certain apps to full screen. Doesn't work. Why have this phone with a beautiful large screen and not utilize it? I want to use every bit of it to enjoy movies. There's gotta be a way to do this right?

Had to switch to the members forum on the browser, the app wont let me reply again. 

 

Anyway to your issue.  

 

Google play movies wont allow a full screen setting for whatever reason but you can watch all of your  Google Play Movies in your youtube app which as you said, does allow full screen.  

 

Go to your YouTube app, tap Library on the bottom, then tap purchases and all of your Google Play Movies/TV shows will show up there.  You can watch them all your youtube app in full screen.  

 

It does keep the proportions of the video though so even though you'll be able to watch full screen side to side, your top and bottom will still have black bars and your camera punch out will be visible in the video.  

 

Hope that helps, at least as a fullscreen option

I would recommend reaching out to Google for further assistance with the full-screen function on their app.

I have the J7 Skypro, and have this issue to. My Galaxy S9+ will allow me to watch full screen movies, but this phone won't. Makes me wonder how smart this smartphone really is...lol
