This allows users to watch YouTube videos in a small window when using other applications. This brings in a stylish way of multitasking to users.

Previously, the picture-in-picture feature was brought to iOS and iPad OS through the iOS 14 update. However, support for the feature was only available when using FaceTime or watching a video. It was not available for the YouTube application at the time. Now, that changes as well as the new feature is getting rolled out to iOS and iPad OS devices.

Furthermore, a thing to note here is that the new feature is rolling out to premium users of the YouTube app first. The good news is that free users will get the new feature as well. However, that is after the premium users receive it.

The new method of multitasking was introduced in Android quite some time ago, although only for premium users of the app. Since then, a lot of iOS users wanted to get the new feature on their devices too. Finally, this feature is coming to devices running iOS and iPad OS.
