YouTube picture-in-picture Mode is Rolling out to more iPhone and iPad Users

Google has revealed that more users will soon be able to use YouTube picture-in-picture mode for iOS and iPadOS, which enables you to view videos in a floating window while using other apps. Though there is some disparity in its availability, users of iOS 15 should soon begin to notice the functionality, according to a forum post made on Monday.

As long as they reside in a region where YouTube Premium is really available, customers to the service should be able to access the feature from anywhere in the globe and use it to watch any kind of material. YouTube only indicates that picture-in-picture is accessible in the US to non-paying users.

Although the functionality will be available to “everyone using the YouTube app on iPhone and iPad” in the US, it will only be functional for “non-music material,” according to the firm. If you use Android, you presumably already have this capability, and according to, nothing is changing as of right now. Some Premium customers (like myself) who have had access to picture-in-picture mode for a considerable amount of time via a variety of techniques may find this news to be a little puzzling.

The firm said in June 2021 that the function will be included to the app for paying users and that it also intended to make picture-in-picture available to its free users. It was made accessible to Premium members as an experimental feature by August. The project was then terminated by YouTube in April 2022, making it impossible for users to sign up to utilise the function. The business then stated that it will have additional information to publish about the feature “soon.”
