One of the advantages of using a PC instead of a phone or tablet is that PCs generally offer better multitasking. For example, you could have a window playing a video and you can switch between them while doing other things. It’s not that easy on smartphones or tablets as it relies on the app.
For those who have subscribed to YouTube TV, you’ll be pleased to know that according to an announcement from YouTube, they’ve announced that picture-in-picture support for YouTube TV on iOS is finally rolling out to users. The rollout appears to be gradual and server-side enabled, meaning that even if you have the latest version of the app, it doesn’t necessarily mean you’ll get the feature right away.
iPhone & iPad users 🔊
We’re happy to share that picture-in-picture is now rolling out to your iOS 15+ devices. Simply select a video to watch and swipe ⬆️ from the bottom of the screen to return to the device's homepage. The video can scale down and move across your screen.

It’s actually a little disappointing that YouTube has taken so long to bring the feature to its iOS app, especially since it’s been a while since iOS officially supported picture-in-picture, but we’re guessing better late than never. Also, it’s a bit strange that YouTube TV supports the feature but not the main YouTube app where picture-in-picture should be one of the perks of being a YouTube Premium subscriber.
If you stream to YouTube TV on your iOS device quite a bit, you should definitely keep an eye out for this feature, which should be making its way to users as we speak.
