YouTube could be bringing a popular feature to its desktop site. A few channels on the site have been selected to test the picture-in-picture option on their website. The option lets you play a minimized version of a video on the bottom right side of your screen while doing other actions on the site, such as uploading or browsing.
Tech news site 9to5Google found the feature on their account, also noting that there are controls on the minimized player such as “play/pause, replay, or watch the next clip, which consists of an overlay of the following video.” They also noted that the feature is activated whenever you click anywhere else on the site.
Though, there has been some speculation that the feature, when launched, will be exclusive to YouTube Red subscribers. YouTube has also teased a preview of upcoming premium music streaming service last week at SXSW 2018.
