In June, YouTube introduced it could be bringing picture-in-picture to iOS. Now, it appears the much-demanded characteristic is lastly out there, although maybe for a restricted time solely and just for YouTube Premium subscribers at present. Right here’s methods to get it.
For those who’re a YouTube Premium subscriber, open up an internet browser and head to www.youtube.com/new. Scroll all the way down to the place “Image-in-picture on iOS” is listed and click on “Strive it out.” You’ll be prompted to register to your account. Then, whereas watching a YouTube video, simply navigate away from the app utilizing the house button or by swiping up and picture-in-picture will begin. Locking your telephone display whereas watching PiP will pause the video, however you’ll be able to resume it through the lock display media controls.
We noticed the information through 9to5Google, which notes that some customers have been capable of get the characteristic engaged on iPads in addition to iPhones, but it surely appears entry is slightly unpredictable. (Apparently deleting the app would possibly assist.)
YouTube says the characteristic is “Out there till 31 Oct,” and we’re unsure what occurs after this date. Fingers’ crossed that shall be when YouTube — as promised in June — shall be bringing the characteristic to all customers, not simply paid ones.
