How-To: Enable Picture-in-Picture for YouTube videos in macOS Sierra

One of the big new features in macOS Sierra is the new iPad-inspired Picture-in-Picture mode for Safari. This allows users to detach a video from its player so that it’s always viewable across desktops and while using other apps.

Although YouTube’s player doesn’t make it readily apparent that its videos work with Picture-in-Picture, it’s quite easy to enable the handy feature for all of your favorite YouTube videos on Safari.

Netflix for iPad now works with iOS 9’s Picture-In-Picture multitasking feature

Apple introduced a built-in Picture-In-Picture feature for iPads on iOS 9 a year ago and released it last fall. We’re getting deep into iOS 10 territory at this point, but some apps are still updating to support the latest features from the current version of iOS. Netflix delivered on that today with official support for PIP on iOS 9.3.2 or later. (The version number requirement may suggest that earlier versions didn’t support what Netflix would need, although iOS 10 beta seems to break it.)

YouTube for iPad gains Split View and Slide Over multitasking on iOS 9, still lacks PIP

The YouTube app for iOS sees an update today adding support for Slide Over and Split View multitasking. Even though iOS 9’s multitasking functionality has finally reached the app, picture-in-picture support remains to be seen. Users will note that background audio is available for current YouTube RED subscribers. The newly introduced multitasking functionality should help to appease those who’ve longed for the ability to catch up on their favorite YouTubers while also flicking through email or other apps.

YouTube app updated for iPad Pro; still lacks support for Split View and Picture in Picture

Today Google pushed a long-awaited update to its YouTube app, which adds support for the iPad Pro. As you might imagine, the additional resolution makes the app look much more at home on Apple’s super-sized tablet than before. Unfortunately, outside of a few additional bug fixes, no other big features made the cut for today’s update. In other words, support for key features like Split View, which makes it possible to enjoy true side-by-side multitasking, and Picture and Picture mode are still missing in action.

With iOS 9 being out for nearly five months now, you would’ve expected all the top video apps to already be including picture-in-picture for the iPad. Unfortunately that doesn’t seem to be the case with YouTube and a few others. If you’re feeling the hurt from not being able to catch up on your favorite YouTuber’s latest videos while multitasking around your iPad, then check out CornerTube, a new YouTube utility app focused on PIP. CornerTube lets users quickly jump into videos on YouTube, all the while enabling that missing PIP feature. It gets even better once you start utilizing the included Today widget in Notification Center and Action extension in other apps.
