    I came here to see what happened to mine and I had a pop up to tell me I could pinch-to-zoom now instead of the little icon to get full screen mode.

    Also was disappointed and angry for loss of "pop up" button. But last comment help me a lot. YouTube and Google think that pinch to zoom is very logical and they didn't tell any word. You need to update last version of app and on my SGS 8+ it works correctly. Greatings from Ukraine.

    Guys I just got it solved.

    How to make the you tube full screen

    The button has already disappeared
    And you can make the screen full by doing the same thing when you a zoom a photo.

    With your two fingers zoom in and the screen will be full. That’s all

    Hey guys, I ran into the same issue. Use two fingers and pinch zoom in. I have YouTube & my Galaxy S8 fully updated. Works perfectly. There is no prompt, but it works for me. It was driving me nuts watching stuff in 16:9!

    You now have to simply pinch outwards not inwards to zoom now. You are welcome.

    As if this isn't something google would do to get people looking at pixel phones instead, IT guys are as bad as gangster.

    I noticed this as well. Luckily I figured it out. Use your fingers to swipe outward to expand video use fingers inward to make video original.

    I'm using a Galaxy Note 8 and I just realised my "stretch to fit" button in YouTube is gone too :/
    I've noticed this too. To crop or stretch the screen while watching YouTube videos, you have to "pinch" the screen like zooming in on a photo and it Will then Stretch.

    Had the same problem, you have to boot the phone in safe mode, by " turn off the phone, then power on, when you see the Samsung logo appear, hold the volume down and the bixby button, then try YouTube see if it works full screen, then reboot the phone normal. Everything would be fixed
