Netflix is testing a new picture-in-picture feature with its web app with some Mac users noting the new option. Currently called the “pop-out player,” the PiP option lets users keep an eye on content while using other apps.
As spotted by Engadget, the pop-up player is currently limited to an unknown number of users via a picture-in-picture button on the bottom right-hand side of the web app. The image above and below shows off the new option running on Google Chrome on a Mac.
Here’s how Netflix describes the new pop-out player:
- Multi-task while it stays on top of other windows and applications
- To resize it, click and drag the corners
- To close it, click the X in the player, Back to Browse, or close this tab
- Subtitles aren’t currently supported in the pop-out player
There was a least one report from a Netflix user who saw this option pop up earlier this month, with one team member at Engadget also seeing the new feature. We haven’t seen the pop-up player button show up yet.
