YouTube has been working hard at getting it’s YouTube Premium features out to the public making it as desirable as possible but not everyone is going to want to pay a monthly fee and YouTube has decided to make picture-in-picture available for it’s free users in the US recently.
The YouTube miniplayer hovers on your homescreen and can be moved and managed simply by tapping or holding the floating video which is great for those wanting to listen to music whilst doing other things. YouTube looks set to make this feature available to users globally as several reports have been shared by users who are seeing the feature in other countries including in Italy. Currently I have been unable to recreate this feature and this could simply be that YouTube are rolling it out in stages. Let us know if you are able to activate this feature.
