The Picture-in-Picture (PiP) option was first made available to Premium users on iPhones and iPad in the US in June. Now, YouTube has announced that this functionality is now available internationally on all iOS and iPadOS 15.0 and higher-running devices.

Since Android Oreo, users on Android have benefited from PiP (picture in picture), and iOS users will soon be able to watch videos while using other applications. PiP is now being rolled out to the YouTube app on the iPhone and iPad, according to a statement from YouTube to MacRumors.

It’s worth noting, however, that this new feature is exclusive to only premium users. If you’re using the free version, you won’t see the PiP option in the settings of your app.

For people in countries like Ghana where a Premium subscription is not available, we can only dream about this feature. It won’t be the first time global companies have left most African countries out of features that, like the rest of the world, we would want. Hopefully, we’ll see this in the free version outside of the U.S in the future.

Global Premium subscribers will be able to view videos on their iPhones and iPads in PiP mode, which allows them to browse other apps on their devices while watching the videos in a tiny, floating window.

It’s just as easy to watch a video in PiP mode on YouTube as it is in any other app that supports the feature: simply exit the app while a particular video is playing, and it will continue to play in thumbnail form when you open other apps.

In a couple of weeks, this feature should be rolled out on all iOS and iPad devices. Are you excited about this feature? Let us know what you think in the comments!
