Google has announced the rollout of YouTube’s picture-in-picture mode for iOS and iPadOS, which lets you watch videos in a floating window while using other apps. according to community post As of Monday, people running iOS 15 should start seeing the feature soon, though there is some fragmentation in its availability.
YouTube Premium subscribers should have access to this feature regardless of where they live in the world an area where you can actually get YouTube Premium, of course – and they’ll be able to use it to view any content. For non-paying YouTube users, YouTube notes that picture-in-picture is only available in the US. Within the US, the company says “anyone using the YouTube app on iPhone and iPad” will get the feature, but it can only be used for “non-music content”. If you use Android, you probably do had this feature for yearsand YouTube says nothing is changing about that today.
It’s happening! ✨ Picture-in-picture is slowly rolling out for YouTube on iPhone and iPad, and just like on Android, you can take advantage of:
Premium members are global and
US non-premium members (non-music only)

This news may confuse some Premium subscribers (like me) who have been able to access picture-in-picture mode for a long time. variety of methods. In June 2021 the company said the feature was making its way to the app for paid customers, and it planned to offer picture-in-picture to free users as well. Until August, it was available as an experimental feature that Premium subscribers could enable. Later in April 2022 YouTube has completed the experiment, so users will no longer be able to register to use the feature. in time, the company said We will have more information to share about the feature “coming soon”.
I mean, this ad has been a bit hard to come by these days (although, again, some of us activated it last year and have been using it ever since). YouTube acknowledges this in its tweets and blog posts, saying that it acknowledges that it is “rolling out slowly for this much-requested feature.” The company also gave itself some leeway to make this phase take some time – it’s his tweet says the feature is “rolling out slowly,” though its blog post is a bit more specific, saying it should arrive “over the next few days.”
To see if you have access to the feature, go to the YouTube app, try playing a video, and then exit the YouTube app to go to your home screen or another app. If picture-in-picture is enabled for your account, the video should automatically appear in a floating window. You can also check this feature by tapping on your profile picture in the top right corner of the YouTube app Parameters > Generaland check out the link labeled “Picture in Picture”.
