Picture-in-picture (or PiP) is available for iPad users since iOS 9 and Apple has enabled it on iPhone this year with iOS 14. However, YouTube has never supported this feature, which allows users to watch videos while using other apps. This might change now as YouTube has started testing the native picture-in-picture feature in its iOS app.
According to some reports on Twitter, picture-in-picture is slowly being rolled out to some users with the latest version of the YouTube app for iOS. Other reports say that the feature is only working with a few videos, which may suggest that YouTube is still properly implementing PiP.
9to5Mac was able to confirm that the feature is indeed being tested with a small group of users.
Once you have the picture-in-picture enabled, it works just like in any other app that supports it. You can start playing a video and then close the app to continue watching it in a smaller window. The video floats over the iOS home screen or any other app you are using.
Here you can see a video of the picture-in-picture feature working on an iPad:
Unfortunately, YouTube limits video playback in the background on iOS to YouTube Premium subscribers, which means that picture-in-picture is also restricted to users who pay for premium YouTube features. YouTube Premium costs $11.99 per month in the U.S., but if you subscribe through the YouTube app for iOS you will end up paying $15.99 due to the 30% App Store commission.
It’s worth mentioning that users with devices running iOS 14, iPadOS 14, and tvOS 14 can also watch 4K HDR videos in the YouTube app for the first time since Apple decided to add support for Google’s VP9 codec to their operating systems this year.
Google didn’t say when the company will enable picture-in-picture in the YouTube app on iOS for all users. If you don’t yet have the picture-in-picture feature enabled in the YouTube app or if you’re not a YouTube Premium subscriber, check out our article demonstrating how you can watch YouTube videos in PiP through Safari.
YouTube app is available for free on the App Store.

First live images of the PS5 reveal how large the console looks – MobileSyrup
The first live images of the PlayStation 5 have been posted online, as the console appeared at Taiwan’s National Communications Commission (NCC).
The photos show just how big the PS5 is, which isn’t much of a surprise since we learned that the PS5 is the biggest game console in modern history.
There are images of the console in vertical and horizontal positions, which show that it may be a bit difficult to fit the PS5 in entertainment centres, since it’s been designed to stand vertically, similar to the Xbox Series X.
Although the images do show the size of the PS5, they don’t provide any information on how users will be able to access the NVMe slot on the console. Users will be able to expand storage space, but it’s not fully known how this will work.
The console will launch in Canada on November 12th. The standard Ultra HD Blu-ray disc drive-equipped console will cost $629.99 CAD, while the all-digital model will be priced at $499.99 CAD.
Additionally, Sony has revealed that some PS5 games, including launch titles Demon’s Souls and Destruction AllStars, will be priced at $89.99 in Canada.

PS5, Xbox Series X and Switch size comparison shows off just how big next-gen units are – VG247
We already know that the PlayStation 5 is the biggest games console in modern history, but a new illustration has made it clear just how big the machine is.
Over on Twitter, illustrator and 3D modeller @keisawada has put together a series of images that really put the size of the next-gen consoles into perspective.
The PS5 is placed next to a Nintendo Switch, an Xbox Series X, an Xbox Series S, a 30″ TV, and a regular PS4. The difference in dimensions is clear to see.

Sony’s next-gen PlayStation towers above the other consoles and almost threatens to match the size of the TV, too. It really is a massive bit of kit.
We know why Sony’s machine is so big: it’s mostly due to cooling. Matt MacLaurin, the vice president of UX Design at PlayStation, has previously explained in a post on LinkedIn that the PS5 runs very hot. As such, it needs more space to adequately vent the heat.
The console hasn’t even launched yet and already it’s causing a schism online; some gamers think it looks pretty and futuristic, others think it looks out-dated and imposing.
Whatever you think of it, though, you can’t argue with its absolutely massive size. The PS5 is approximately 390mm tall, 260mm deep, and 104mm wide (and the digital version is only 12mm slimmer).
Sony will release two consoles in November; the standard model and the digital-only models They’ll set you back $499 and $399, respectively.
