YouTube’s iPhone picture-in-picture mode is coming back — here’s how to enable it

YouTube’s picture-in-picture mode was just removed from the iOS version of the app, but the good news is that it will be back soon.

Picture-in-picture mode, previously an experimental perk exclusive to YouTube Premium, will now be available to all iOS 15 users in the coming days. A user who asked about missing features explained the YouTube team account. In addition to making a comeback, PiP is now available to all users, whether or not they pay for YouTube without ads.

Do you use an iOS smartphone? If so, the picture-in-picture feature is still rolling out and will be available on all iOS 15+ devices in a few days. Tweet us if you like.April 10, 2022

Existing YouTube PiP users (myself included) may have forgotten that the feature was only a limited test, even though it lasted nine months. However, the sudden disappearance of the feature (even from the YouTube Labs page where you have to enable it) is a bit of a shock, so it’s nice that YouTube’s tweet clarifies that.

However, Android users can sit still. As you can see from our guide to using picture-in-picture on YouTube, picture-in-picture is easier to enable on Android phones, and can be used by anyone with Android 8 or higher, whether they have YouTube or not. Premium or not.

For now, only one TG employee with an iPhone has that option, and the rest of us (including YouTube Premium subscribers) have now lost it. Hopefully YouTube will live up to its promise and bring this feature to all users and bring those who once had it back in the near future. Now, here’s how to enable it if you have it.

YouTube’s iPhone picture-in-picture mode is coming back — here’s how to enable it

YouTube’s picture-in-picture mode was just removed from the iOS version of the app, but the good news is it’s coming back soon.
PiP mode, which was previously an experimental YouTube Premium-only perk, is now coming to all iOS 15 users in the coming days. The Team YouTube account explained it a user asking about the missing feature. Not only is PiP coming back, it will now be available to all users, whether they pay for ad-free YouTube or not.

Are you using an iOS smartphone? If so, the Picture-in-Picture feature is still rolling out & will be available in a matter of days across all iOS 15+ devices. Tweet back @ us if needed.April 10, 2022

Existing YouTube PiP users (myself included) may have forgotten that the feature was meant to only be a limited trial, despite that trial lasting nine months. However, the abrupt disappearance of the feature (including from the YouTube Labs page where you had to enable it) was a bit of a shock, so it’s good to have YouTube’s tweet clear it up.
Android users can just sit back though. As you can see in our how to use YouTube picture-in-picture mode guide, the picture-in-picture option for Android phones is much easier to enable, and is already available for everyone running Android 8 or later, whether you have YouTube Premium or not.
As it stands, only one iPhone-using TG staffer currently has the option available, with the rest of us (including YouTube Premium subscribers) having now lost the option. Hopefully YouTube will keep its promise and bring the feature to all users, and back to those who previously had it, in the near future. For now, here’s how to enable the feature if you’ve got it.
