YouTube users on Android I have always liked PiP (Picture in Picture) because Android Oreo and iOS users can finally enjoy YouTube videos while using other apps.In a statement Mike Rumor, YouTube confirmed that PiP is now being rolled out to the YouTube app on iPhone and iPad.
Picture-in-Picture (PiP) allows users to watch YouTube videos in a small mini player while browsing content outside of the YouTube app on mobile devices. We started to roll out picture-in-picture for YouTube Premium members on iOS, and plan to roll out picture-in-picture for all American iOS users. ”
It is worth noting that on Android, PiP does not require YouTube Premium. Although YouTube mentions that this feature is only available to YouTube Premium subscribers, it plans to eventually make it available to all iOS users on YouTube.
To activate picture-in-picture on YouTube, open and play the video on the app, then swipe home. The video should continue to play in the mini player and can be moved around by dragging or pinching with two fingers to resize.
Android and iOS still require YouTube Premium to allow YouTube videos to continue playing in the audio-only background.
