After Dark Mode, YouTube Is Testing This Awesome New Feature!: YouTube, the video streaming platform owned by the search giant Google is known for its user-friendly interface. The previous year we have seen the search giant launched the dark interface for YouTube desktop version.
A few days ago, we have seen Google announced that they are rolling out the dark mode feature on iOS Devices. Android users are yet to grab this awesome feature. It looks like, another feature is about to reach YouTube.
YouTube has been testing, with a small group of users, the Picture-in-picture (PIP) mode in the web version. The latest feature will allow users to continue watching the video while browsing other web pages on the site.
The latest feature was actually spotted by 9to5Google and apparently is being tested with a very limited number of users. The audio will continue to play as a sizable floating window appears in the bottom-right corner of your screen.
Through the pop-up box, you will get controls like play/pause, replay or watch the next video. The name of the video is displayed underneath, while the full playlists can be viewed and scrolled by tapping an icon located in the bottom-right corner.
According to the reports from TechCrunch, the feature is being tested by users inside and outside the United States, whether or not they are subscribers of YouTube Red. Well, PIP has been around for a long time now on YouTube apps for Android and iOS, so it’s likely to become the standard on the web.
Google hasn’t commented anything on the latest feature. We have to wait for some more time to hear the official announcement. What’s your opinion on this? Discuss with us in the comments.
