How to run YouTube videos in picture-in-picture mode on iOS

Before starting the steps to run YouTube videos in picture-in-picture mode on iOS, it’s important to note that you must be a YouTube Premium member and log in with an account with the paid subscription. This feature is not currently available for the YouTube app. This means that you need to rely on a web browser (such as Safari or Chrome) to run your favorite YouTube videos as a picture-in-picture.

  1. Open your web browser and log in to YouTube with your account, which is part of the YouTube Premium subscription.

  2. Search for the video you want to watch.

  3. Switch to full screen mode by clicking the square icon in the lower right corner of the video.

  4. Click on the video to view the controls, and then press the picture-in-picture button in the upper left corner—just next to the close button. Alternatively, you can double-tap the screen with two fingers or swipe up from the bottom of the device to enable the picture-in-picture mode.

  5. When enabled, the picture-in-picture mode allows you to move to any other application and work on it — while continuously playing a running YouTube video in a small window.

You can exit the picture-in-picture mode by clicking the icon in the upper right corner of the small window. You can also double-tap the video with two fingers to move it back to the original view. When finished, you can close your YouTube video by clicking the “x” button.
