YouTube rolling out Picture-in-Picture mode for IOS: Reports

YouTube users on Android have long been enjoying some features that Apple users still haven’t been able to take advantage of—at least not consistently. One such feature is the picture-in-picture (PiP) support. YouTube application supports picture-in-picture mode on Android devices and the feature is soon expected to be rolled out to iPhones as well as iPads. A picture-in-picture mode allows users to continue viewing a video even when an application has been minimised.

The video streaming platform is rolling out the new feature to premium subscribers, according to a report by The Verge. The company is expected to roll out the feature to non-premium users as well.

Android devices have had picture-in-picture mode support for years now. Globally, the feature remains paywalled behind a YouTube Premium subscription, but in the US, ad-supported PiP playback is available for free-tier user. PIP essentially allows YouTube to display a mini-player on top of any other application that you are using. This allows you to use other apps while watching YouTube videos.

The picture-in-picture support, on an operating system level was first introduced on iPads with the iOS 9 update. iOS devices received the update much later with iOS 14.Some iPad users can still use the picture-in-picture while using YouTube on Safari browser. In most cases, this feature was only introduced to premium subscribers.

With the recent roll out the new picture-in-picture mode, more users will be able to access the new feature, at least in United States. iOS users, with or without a YouTube Premium subscription, will soon have access to it using the YouTube app as Android users have for years.

YouTube did not provide a timeline for when the feature would arrive for free users, but stated the rollout to Premium subscribers is in progress
