Google Makes YouTube Picture-In-Picture To Non-Red/Premium Users Available

YouTube’s PiP mode? That’s the same picture-in-picture feature made available on YouTube by Google previously to those who would subscribe to services such as YouTube Red or YouTube Premium, is now going to be experienced by non-Red/Premium users from users in the United States, according to a new report.

It appears that Google had a change of heart and decided to bring the PiP (picture-in-picture) feature to non-Red and Premium users in the US. When it is going to be added or available is unknown at the far moment, because there’s no further confirmation on the rollout as yet. Or when the YouTube’s feature will be available for users outside the United States, too. It seems like Google will decide and may continue to roll out to other territories in the coming days.

In order to enable PiP in YouTube US channel, you’ll need to use the new toggle in the app’s Settings menu. This toggle may be added via a server-side update over-the-air (OTA), so you might not even know that it’s there. If you don’t see anything like that added already, it means Google hasn’t yet enabled it on your YouTube phone application.

Notably, it’s worth mentioning that since the uploader of a YouTube video has the option to disable PiP mode, many videos will not work with the feature even if you have it enabled on your phone.
