YouTube Rolls Out Picture-in-Picture (Mini player) for Desktop Version
If you have been thinking of watchingÂ YouTubeÂ videos while perusing the News Feed, then this is a great news for you. You can now watch videos using Picture-in-Picture mini player via your web browser.
The mini player feature was earlier released this month, and it allows users to continue playing a video theyâ€™re already watching while browsing for another one. Just like Facebookâ€™s video player, which minimizes and moves to the side of your News Feed while you continue to scroll down the page.
The mini player viewing mode allows users to continue browsingÂ YouTube in the same browser tab while their video plays in the corner of their browser window.
How To Use The YouTube Mini-Player
To use the mini-player, hover over the bottom of the video, and use the icons in the right-hand corner to select mini-player.
You can exit out of the mini-player by hitting the â€œxâ€ or escape keys on your keyboards. You can also control playlists, queues, and next videos directly through the minimized video.
