YouTube Premium, as well as non-premium subscribers, can soon get Picture-in-Picture mode. The PiP mode will be first rolled out for YouTube iOS premium users and later for all non-premium users.
The picture-in-Picture mode was earlier released for iOS and iPad OS via using Safari, however, it was not supported on the YouTube app at that time. But now its support will be extended to the YouTube app and iOS users will be able to get this feature.
Android does have this feature for the past few years. While iOS hasn’t yet, soon it will be released, but there is no official hearing regarding its release date.
Picture-in-Picture (PiP) allows users to watch YouTube videos in a small mini player while simultaneously browsing outside of the YouTube app on their mobile device. We’re starting to roll out PiP for YouTube Premium members on iOS and plan to launch PiP for all US iOS users as well.
Picture-in-Picture mode lets you do other tasks as well as watching YouTube videos in a small pop window. While pressing the home button the video convert into a small pop window, which can be easily moved in every direction. The feature will be rolled out for iOS and iPadOS users across the US.
