Do you know that
YouTube’s mobile website permits pictures in picture mode on an iPhone running
iOS 14? This is actually great news because you can browse YouTube in Chrome or

accessible once you maximize the video, and then continue with your usual
routine while the video will continue playing in a small floating window on the

And you know what? You
don’t even need a Premium account for this! YouTube had actually blocked the

enjoy it while it lasts!
