YouTube rolling out Picture-in-Picture for iPhone and iPad devices


Google has announced that YouTube picture-in-picture mode for iOS and iPadOS, which allows you to watch videos in a floating window while using other apps, is becoming more widely available. According to a Monday community post from the firm, users running iOS 15 or higher should see the feature soon, though there is some fragmentation in its availability.

YouTube's picture-in-picture mode for iOS and iPadOS

Picture-in-picture functionality was previously only available to U.S. YouTube Premium subscribers, but it is now accessible to all YouTube users in the U.S. A premium subscription is necessary to access the picture-in-picture feature in other countries. U.S. non-subscribers have access to picture-in-picture for non-music videos but not for music unless they have a premium subscription.

To test whether you have access to the feature, launch the YouTube app, play a video, and then exit the app to return to your home screen or another app. If your account has picture-in-picture enabled, the video should automatically pop out into a floating window. You can also look for it by tapping your profile picture in the upper right corner of the YouTube app, going to Settings > General, and looking for a toggle labelled “Picture-in-picture.”

The picture-in-picture feature will be made available over the coming days to iPhone and iPad devices running iOS 15 or later.
