How to play YouTube video in picture-in-picture mode on iOS

Like Android devices, iPhone or iPod users can enjoy YouTube videos in picture-in-picture mode. You do not need to install the YouTube app on your iPhone or iPad to get Pixar-in-Picture mode. Instead, you can enjoy it directly using a web browser, including pre-loaded Safari. If you want to do some multitasking on your iPhone or iPod, Image-in-Picture (PIP) mode can be very useful. You can easily access your settings menu or check a message on WhatsApp.

Apple has enabled image-in-picture support by default since the release of iOS 14 / iPadOS 14 last year. You can use it to watch YouTube videos in picture-in-picture mode on your Apple device. Here’s how it is possible.

How to play YouTube videos in picture-in-picture mode on iOS

Before you begin the steps you can take to play YouTube videos in picture-in-picture mode on iOS, you need to be a member of YouTube Premium and sign up for an account with that paid subscription. This feature does not work with the YouTube app at this time. This means you have to trust a web browser like Safari or Chrome to run your favorite YouTube videos in the movie.

  1. Open your web browser and sign in to YouTube with your account as part of the YouTube Premium Subscription.

  2. Find the video you want to watch.

  3. Switch to fullscreen mode by tapping the square icon at the bottom right of the video.

  4. Tap the video to see the controls, then press the Image button in the image from the top left – next to the Close button. Alternatively, you can tap the screen twice with two fingers or swipe upwards from the bottom of your device to enable image mode in the image.

  5. Once enabled, Pixar-in-Picture mode lets you navigate to any other application you want and work – while continuing to play YouTube video in a small window.

You can exit image-in-picture mode by tapping its icon on the top-right side of the small window. You can also move it to the original view by tapping the video twice using two fingers. When done, you can close your YouTube video by tapping the ‘x’ button.
