The introduction of Android Oreo brought with it a lot of thoughtful little changes. These changes were to make the user experience more enjoyable. A major new update of Android Oreo was a native picture-in-picture mode. This mode allows users to minimize the current window to a corner and switch to use another app. The minimized down window can be then moved around from one area on the screen to another according to the user’s need. The most obvious beneficiary of this new feature was Google’s YouTube app.

Unfortunately for many users, Google decided to lock behind this new feature behind a YouTube Red subscription. But now, based on some recent developments it seems that these may be set to change. There are several reports that suggest that now some videos are allowing for PiP playback. These videos even don’t need a YouTube Red subscription. It is also worth noting that not every user is able to use the above-mentioned feature. Now there is also a possibility that the company is just testing the feature for now. It is also very likely that the feature will be rolling out to other users in the coming days.

More about YouTube Picture-in-Picture mode:

According to some other reports, YouTube has left it for the content owners to decide whether or not they want to allow picture-in-picture playback for their videos. It is also very likely that most of the music videos owner on the platform will decide to not allow PiP playback. Users may have primarily used this feature to stream free music from YouTube while working on something else on their device.
