How picture-in-picture works

Picture-in-picture shrinks the video into a small player that you can move around your home screen and position over other apps. You can continue watching YouTube TV while using other apps on your mobile device with this feature turned on.

The video will shrink into a PiP window, which can be dragged to different parts of the screen. This will allow playback to continue on top of other apps.
