The company is already rolling out the feature to premium subscribers; however, in a statement to MacRumors, YouTube revealed that it will eventually launch to all users.
Picture-in-Picture (PiP) allows users to watch YouTube videos in a small mini player while simultaneously browsing outside of the YouTube app on their mobile device. We’re starting to roll out PiP for YouTube Premium members on iOS and plan to launch PiP for all US iOS users as well.
You can download the YouTube app from the App Store for free. Please download the iClarified app or follow iClarified on Twitter, Facebook, YouTube, and RSS for more updates.
