mode picture-in-picture

Здравствуйте, с приходом объявления 8.0 oreo в мой Sony xz premium я не нашёл включения режима "картинка в картинке". На сайте Xperia я увидел надпись о том что доп информацию можно найти на форуме, но так и не нашёл. Расскажите - как её активировать? 

 

 

Hello, with the advent of the announcement 8.0 oreo in my Sony xz premium, I did not find the inclusion of the "picture in picture" mode. On the site Xperia, I saw an inscription that additional information can be found on the forum, but I did not find it. Tell us - how to activate it?

Re: mode picture-in-picture

Just open Google Chrome and play any video in full screen, then press the home button.

The video will continue playing in a small window.

 

Obviously it doesn't work with youtube (as far as I've read, it needs a youtube red subscription for pip mode).

 

Some other apps might support it too, but might need to be updated to Oreo compatibility first.

Its only available to few Android devices BUT 

 

Open Youtube > look for the video > play it >  long press the task manager > now you should be able to split the screen, it's not the same but you can do 2 things at once

Re: mode picture-in-picture

@romka-99only some apps support PIP mode. Youtube does, but as @DJAxcess mentioned, you need Youtube Red subscription to be able to use it. Duo and Whatsapp have it, too, when you perform a video call, as well as Google Maps when you start navigation mode. from what I've read, Netflix is implementing support for PIP, too.
