Apple has added a picture-in-picture function to the iPhone in iOS 14. This function is designed to allow you to watch videos on the small screen on the device, while you can continue to do other things on the phone.
The YouTube application currently does not support iOS 14 “Picture-in-Picture”. A workaround has previously appeared to allow videos on the YouTube.com web page to be viewed in the “Picture-in-Picture” mode of the Safari browser.
Naijatechnews learned that starting today, this workaround has disappeared. When users tried to use “Picture-in-Picture” on videos on the YouTube mobile site, it simply couldn’t be achieved. After clicking the “Picture-in-Picture” button in full-screen mode, the video will pop up for one second, but it will immediately bounce back to the website, so it cannot be used as a picture-in-picture window.
On the iPad, picture-in-picture can be used with YouTube.com. YouTube videos embedded in third-party websites seem to be playable in picture-in-picture mode, but picture-in-picture is not available on the YouTube website.
Later, foreign media finally discovered that for those YouTube premium subscribers, iOS 14 picture-in-picture seems to work on Safari’s mobile YouTube website , which shows that the restriction is intentional and not a mistake.
