Recently Google released a new version of the Chrome browser. After a large-scale redesign of the interface in September, the developers have not said anything about any major changes, but careful users noticed something interesting. Mode “picture in picture” finally got to the desktop.

How does it work?

While the function can be tested only on YouTube. Just double-click, right-click on the video (because first you receive a private menu of the player) and in the drop-down list to select a new option “picture in Picture”. The movie will be played in mini-player on top of other apps, and the tab displays the indicator icon.

Users can move the window around the screen and change its size. Controls low, there is only a pause button and the cross to close. When the list appears compatible services is unknown. The embodiment of the Chrome requires modifying the code of the player, and the availability of the mode depends on the willingness of web developers.

“Picture-in-picture” appeared in beta Chrome 69, but had to manually turn on the experimental features page. It is now available in stable version of Chrome 70 for Windows, Mac and Linux.

In browsers Opera and Safari, the opportunity was a long time ago.
