How to Make any app full screen on the Galaxy S8 or S8 Plus?


So the Samsung Galaxy S8 and S8+ has a really large infinity screen that’s just gorgeous but by default some apps wont fill out that screen or make use of it until developers start adjusting their apps to the new dimensions. But wait there is hope as built into the Galaxy S8 and S8+ is a new feature that allows you to choose which apps use only the usual dimensions or fill out the entire screen.

This applies to regular apps as well as Games. The only draw back is that apps are stretched to fit the screen and may look a bit stretched. In my tests I found that most apps look quite fine with the new dimensions and if you don’t like it you can always reverse the process and return things to normal.
