YouTube TV has rolled out a new feature for all iOS 15 users with a Picture-in-Picture display, promoting multitasking or going to other apps without having to stop the stream. The feature is available on the latest operating system from the Cupertino giant, available on both the iPhone and iPad devices.
The only question remains whether it will only be available on Premium plans, such as YouTube’s Premium feature for PiP.

The YouTube TV team is pleased to share with the public that a previously promised feature of Picture-in-Picture is now available on their platform for all users under iOS 15. The team said users can continue by swiping up from the bottom of the screen or pressing the home button while watching, and users can continue watching the shows and the device use for their needs.
Users must play the video before it can be accessed through the PiP feature on the platform, and from here the popup will be accessible to everyone. The window floats on top of other apps or the home screen when in use, but it stops the video when the user locks the device.
The streaming platform said the company worked on this feature for a long timeand its promise is now fulfilled for all its users.

It’s important to note that users can only access YouTube TV on Premium, so for this feature to work, they need to subscribe to YouTube’s all-in-one experience. Users can choose to try this feature for a free trial to access the exclusive content, but after that YouTube would charge $64.99 per month.
The company is offering a $10 discount for new subscribers for the first three months.
