We’ve heard about this rumor since last year but it seems that just now, it will become reality. YouTube is finally ready to release a handy feature for iPhone users after making it available to Android owners for a while now.
The feature that’s rolling out now and will come to all iOS15+ devices “in a matter of days” is the PiP support, according to TechRadar.
That’s the acronym for “picture-in-picture” – YouTube app’s ability to minimize videos in a corner of the iPhone’s screen while juggling other apps.
Now, iPhone users who were Premium subscribers know the feature in detail but the rest will just now get to see its convenience.
How to Get PiP Support on Your iOS YouTube App
If you notice an early update, do the following:
- tap the user icon and then click Settings
- tap the General tab
- enable picture-in-picture mode from there
You’ll see that PiP is very similar to FaceTime. You just have to swipe up to the home screen while you’re watching a YouTube clip to get it minimized.
