YouTube has fulfilled promises to provide picture-in-picture-viewing for iOS customers. TechCrunch says that YouTube promises PiP is viewed by everyone iPhone and iPad owners in the US and Canada, beginning with users using the Premium.
You’ll need to sign up for the trial via the site for experiments on your personal computer. However, you’ll be set once you’ve done that. You can view videos in a floating display while you browse your social media accounts or accomplish your tasks.
YouTube will soon roll out the picture-in-picture mode for all iOS users.
The premium testing period ends at the end of October. It’s possible to reinstall the YouTube application if the feature isn’t accessible immediately.
The company hasn’t stated the date it’s planning to allow PiP to non-Premium subscribers. It’s still a step towards the future, but be aware. YouTube’s web-only functionality was insufficient at best. It should help increase the number of users and make YouTube more than the other video platforms.
