YouTube is finally planning to release a feature that is highly expected by the users of this giant video streaming platform. The platform is enhancing the user experience by adding picture-in-picture viewing to iOS users. TechCrunch reported that all iPhone and iPad users in the US will get the PiP feature. Initially, it is limited to its Premium users. Users have to opt for the feature by enrolling themselves into the test via the experiments website on the computer. After enrolling, users will be able to view videos from the platform in a floating window while browsing other apps and social media networks on their devices.
The test phase for Premium users will end on October 31st. If the feature isn’t working on your device after that you will have to download the YouTube app once more to make it work.
However, the company hasn’t said anything about plans for expanding this PiP feature for its non-Premium users. But to begin with, enabling this feature for Premium subscribers is a good step forward. YouTube was limited by its web-only support. The new feature will be more useful for its users and make the app more competitive among other video platforms.
