People who shoot vertical videos with their smartphone receive criticism from the viewers usually, but now YouTube will soon formulate this practice or at least it promises an upcoming update for the mobile application, which will adjust the display with any proportion.

The official YouTube blog announced that a new update for the mobile app would allow them to recognise and show any video in a better way with a non-standard aspect ratio.

Whether it's a phone recording or a DSLR clip, regular 4:3 or 16:9 recording, including square and vertical filmed content - the application will adapt dynamically to any format to take full advantage of the smartphone screen.

Incidentally, YouTube announced that their service is used by over 1.5 billion registered users spending over an hour on average watching videos per day. The update is expected in the coming weeks.
