It looks like YouTube will finally implement the function of “Picture in picture»On iOS devices. This will allow you to watch a video with the YouTube app closed while browsing with Safari.
It will be implemented in a gradual. It started in the US but the developer has promised to expand its implementation very soon, both for users with and without Premium subscriptions. We will wait, then.
Youtube just published that it will start implementing “Picture in Picture” support in its iOS app, which allows all users, premium and non-premium subscribers, to close the YouTube app and continue watching their video in a small pop-up window.
It had been speculated that this new feature would only be available to paid YouTube subscribers, but today the company itself denied it. It will be a function for all the users
The implementation of this service will be gradual. YouTube started with the usuarios of EE.UU., and it will expand to other countries within a few days, until its update is complete for all users.
It will certainly be very useful when it is implemented in iPad. Thanks to the generous iPad screen, it will be very convenient to be able to watch any YouTube video in a pop-up screen with the app closed, while still browsing the web with Safari.
It is not clear why its location must be gradual. This is simply an update of the app, where the servers that YouTube has scattered around the planet have nothing to do with it. But the point is, it will be like that.
We will therefore be attentive to see when it will finally be implemented in our country, but it seems that it is already matter of days. We will see.
