The YouTube app on iOS will be getting picture-in-picture assistance, permitting all users to enjoy videos while doing other things on their iPhones and iPads. A YouTube representative informed The Verge that the function is presently presenting to Premium customers, and a launch for all iOS users (consisting of the free ones) in the United States remains in the works.

Apple included assistance for picture-in-picture video for iPads with iOS 9 and brought it to iPhones with iOS 14. Ever since, YouTube’s assistance for the function on iPhones and iPads has been spotty– it works for iPad if you’re utilizing Safari (though some have reported it does not work for non-Premium customers); iPhone users just could access the function regularly.

That issue appears to be disappearing, a minimum for those in the United States: iOS users, with or without a YouTube Premium membership, will quickly access it utilizing the YouTube app as Android users have for years. YouTube did not offer a timeline for when the function would show up free of charge to users. However, it mentioned the rollout to Premium subscribers remains in development.

Correction: An earlier variation of this post specified that the PiP video concerned the iPad with iOS 13. It, in truth, got here with iOS 9. We are sorry for the mistake.
