    Title Option to "force" an app to use notch area
    Device OnePlus7T Software Version O2 Stable 191106
    Topic Suggestion
    Feature Needed Background Description I'm playing a game in which the notch area is entirely unused and empty / black. This is a huge waste of screen space. Forcing the app to use this space would make the game very immersive. This seems to be a hard limitation introduced by OnePlus.
    Any other comments
    I see that on phones with the notch, many apps cannot go "full screen" and utilize the notch area, especially games (these apps don't appear in "Apps to display in full screen" in Display settings).

    My suggestion is for OnePlus to add a "force full screen" option, so I can force an app to use the notch area, as if the notch didn't exist. Even if the notch area blocks some UI, I should be able to force it to go full screen.

    This would remove the dependency on third party apps to support this.
