You generally see Recyclerview as a horizontal list or vertical list. To make it horizontal we set recyclerview param property as linearLayout property. The behavior of Horizontal Recyclerview that can expand vertically is called staging.

So if you want recyclerview expand itself vertical when item reaches at the end of screen width then you have to use staggeredGridLayoutManager. Define you recyclerview as

recyclerView = (RecyclerView) findViewById(R.id.recycler_view);

recyclerView.setLayoutManager(new StaggeredGridLayoutManager(4, StaggeredGridLayoutManager.VERTICAL));
// Here 4 is no. of columns to be displayed
