How to Enable Picture-in-Picture for YouTube in macOS Sierra

Look forward to enabling Picture-in-Picture for YouTube videos on your Mac running macOS Sierra? Here is how you can get started with it.

When iOS 9 arrived with iPad specific “Picture-in-Picture” mode last year, I really appreciated the feature. The ability to let you use more than one app simultaneously with optimum convenience is multitasking at its very best. As for instance, you can watch your favorite video while using other apps at the same time.

Now, Picture-in-Picture mode has arrived with macOS Sierra. You can watch any video; continue to chat with your friends without needing to quit the app in which you are working all at once on your Mac.
