Up to now, you could just make use of YouTube’s picture in-picture mode on the off chance that you were paying for its membership based Red service (now Premium and Music). Be that as it may, following ongoing testing, the Google-owned organization has recently opened it up to non-subscribers, as well.
The clever element gives you a chance to limit a video so you can do stuff on different applications, in the case of surfing the web, perusing your Instagram channel, or checking your Facebook page. Be that as it may, observe — there are a few confinements with it. To begin with, your gadget should run Android 8.0 Oreo or above, and you should be situated in the U.S. Additionally, as indicated by its Help page, it won’t work for music content without a Premium membership. So on the off chance that you need to tune in to tracks from YouTube while you do other stuff on your cell phone, you’ll have to fork out $12 multi month for the service. Also, content makers can, on the off chance that they wish, keep their recordings from being minimized, so don’t get excessively baffled on the off chance that you can’t switch, making it impossible to picture-in-picture mode with a portion of your choices.
To utilize the component, you’ll first need to enable the option in YouTube’s Settings page. To do as such, tap your profile symbol upper right, at that point hit Settings, at that point General. Search for “picture-in-picture” and hit the button adjacent to it (in the event that you don’t see it, it implies the rollout hasn’t reached you yet).
Next, hit play on your picked video, and tap the home button to enable picture-in-picture. Presently have a go at opening different applications on your gadget and pushing the little video picture around the show to put it where you need. Tap the video twice to return it to full size on its YouTube page, or close it by hitting the “x” button at the upper right of the small scale player or by swiping it off the base of the show.
