YouTube app for iOS, iPadOS Getting photo-in-photo support, first for Premium members: Report

The YouTube app on iOS and iPadOS is finally receiving photo support (PiP) support, according to a new report.

This feature allows YouTube videos to be played in a small window while using other apps.

With iOS 14, Apple added photo-to-image support to iOS and iPadOS when using FaceTime or watching a video but, at the time, the YouTube app did not support it.

The report also states that the feature is being released to YouTube Premium subscribers on iOS first.

IPhone and iPad users can now perform multiple tasks on their devices with a YouTube video that works side by side.

The MacRumors report states that the image-to-image feature is being released to iOS users with a YouTube Premium subscription.

This will allow qualified users to watch YouTube video in a small window on their device while using other apps.

The report adds that a major release for all iOS users in the US will happen soon.

Even non-paying YouTube users will be able to take advantage of the image-to-picture feature.

“Picture-in-Picture (PiP) allows users to watch YouTube videos with a mini-player simultaneously while browsing outside the YouTube app on their mobile phone.

We are launching the YouTube Premium for members of the iOS Premium on iOS and plan to introduce the IPP for all US iOS users, ”YouTube reportedly told MacRumors.

While official photo-in-image support is now being targeted at iOS and iPadOS, users have found the moment behind that YouTube videos on Safari or other browsers can be played in a smaller window than other apps.

However, in September last year, the operation was reportedly removed by YouTube or Apple.

Then in October, it was discovered that the feature also works with Safari and other browsers. Backlash will end with YouTube for iOS to get official PiP support.

On Android, YouTube’s photo gallery is temporarily supported, even if it’s only for YouTube Premium members.
