YouTube TV announced today that picture-in-picture will now be available on iPhone and iPad.

Here’s how YouTube TV describes the feature:

Picture-in-picture shrinks the video into a small player that you can move around your home screen and position over other apps. You can continue watching YouTube TV while using other apps on your mobile device with this feature turned on. The video will shrink into a PiP window, which can be dragged to different parts of the screen. This will allow playback to continue on top of other apps. 

YouTube TV confirmed in February the rumor that the feature would be coming to iOS devices. At the time, YouTube chief product officer Neal Mohan shared that there will be more updates coming to YouTube TV, including wider support for surround sound.

Since then, YouTube TV has started testing a new guide design with upgraded features.

“One thing that I love to hear is how much people appreciate the YouTube TV experience, and we’re going to keep pushing forward on even more innovative features for our members,” Mohan wrote in a blog post last month. YouTube TV subscribers can expect more improvements to their streaming service in the coming months.
