Let's take a closer look at YouTube TV's picture-in-picture mode on iOS and iPad.
Google has begun rolling out a new update to its iOS YouTube TV app that adds picture-in-picture support for iPhone and iPad users. The update has long been overdue. The new update is now available for iOS 15 and later devices. Let's take a closer look at YouTube TV's picture-in-picture mode on iOS and iPad.
You can now watch YouTube TV videos in a small window.
The YouTube TV team announced on Twitter that picture-in-picture (PiP) is now available on devices running iOS 15 and higher. Users can return to the Home screen by swiping up from the bottom of the screen (as with any other Apple device application), with the video still playing in a tiny picture-in-picture window. Thanks to picture-in-picture functionality, YouTube TV viewers can watch videos while doing other things on their iPhone or iPad. Best Phone Under 30000 in India (April 2022)
Simply select a video to watch and swipe up from the bottom of the screen to return to the device's homepage to stream it in picture-in-picture mode. The video will continue to play in a mini video that can be moved across your screen if you have the latest version of the YouTube TV app installed. The PiP window can be closed by swiping it away from the user's screen.

We’re happy to share that picture-in-picture is now rolling out to your iOS 15+ devices. Simply select a video to watch and swipe ⬆️ from the bottom of the screen to return to the device's homepage. The video can scale down and move across your screen.
In terms of availability, YouTube claims that the feature is now available to all users worldwide. Regardless, we can expect a gradual rollout to YouTube TV subscribers. You can go to the Apple App Store to see if there are any new updates available.
Picture-in-picture for regular YouTube content is also being tested with premium users, but the feature has not yet been made available to non-subscribers. Google, on the other hand, has stated that picture-in-picture capability will soon be available to all YouTube users.
