Enable or Disable Automatic Screen Rotation on Nexus 6P

Edited by Djinu, VisiHow, Eng, Anonymous

You're watching VisiHow. In this tutorial, I'm going to demonstrate how to turn on or off "Auto-rotate" on the Nexus 6P. "Auto-rotate" allows to change the screen orientation automatically when you turn the device around. Let's say you are in bed and you are viewing your phone in a weird angle and you want to maintain the portrait position.
