I'm not sure if this is the right place to post, but I have a suggestion/request for the iOS app when used on the iPhone X.

This is a problem with the iOS app on the iPhone X only.
iPhone X has a "home bar/indicator" that the user can not remove. (Which is just a dumb decision by Apple)
The home bar is very invasive when watching videos. Below is a picture showing how annoying it can be.

The App developer however can hide it from view if they like.
Here's documentation from apple on the function for the home indicator to show up.
https://developer.apple.com/documentation/uikit/uiviewcontroller/2887510-prefershomeindicatorautohidden

It would be great if you could remove the home indicator when watching videos.
It's currently unbearable for me to watch as the bar (which changes colors which makes it even worse) is constantly distracting me.

Yeah, this was bugging me over the weekend. Especially when trying to forward/rewind via bottom control and the video marker is around the middle area. This basically activates iOS app switching

I've had to keep my iPhone 7+ around because this bar issue destroys the experience. Other video apps are either fully optimized (and allow for full screen) or have the bar disappear (Hulu). Hope they fix it soon.

Do you have instructions on how to do this? The original post was deleted.

Why would they do that? Sorry, no, I didn't save them since I thought they would be available there...
