    Definitely a OnePlus issue. Checked on several android phones, they work as intended, but on OnePlus I have this problem too.

    If you notice when you change the orientation of the screen.. a small icon appears at the bottom. Touching that allows you to change the orientation back to Portrait.. Keep an eye at the bottom of the screen for this icon.

    I have this same problem... before youtube used to automatically go to portrait once I exit from the fullscreen mode . Now it just gets locked in landscape instead of switching to portrait

    I find this quite an interesting function as it gives the user the choice to move between landscape and portrait but quickly . I have had situations when I was watching content lying down and the orientation was not the way I wanted.

    True. But it's a workaround for now. It appears everytime when your screen rotates. So. It's not a solution. It is a feature for those who don't want to change screen to landscape mode everytime. It's useful when they only want to rotate screen in specific app.

    Yes you have to check for it and touch once to get back to your normal or portrait mode or full screen mode. I have been seeming this icon on my dive for some time now.
