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.
Even though YouTube’s player doesn’t officially work with PiP, you can easily enable this feature for your YouTube videos on Safari using a smart feature. Here is how it works:
Must Check Out:
- Picture-in-Picture is supported only in Safari web browser.
- Your Mac must be running macOS Sierra, which is currently available as a developer beta, to let you use PiP.
How to Enable Picture-in-Picture for YouTube Videos in macOS Sierra
Step #1. First off, you need to launch Safari on your Mac running macOS Sierra.
Step #2. Next up, head over to YouTube.com.
Step #3. Now, you have to right click on the video that you want to detach.
Step #5. Finally, you will need to click on the Enter Picture-in-Picture.
The video has been detached. Enjoy watching your favorite video in PiP mode on your Mac. You can dock video in one of the four corners of your Mac screen, resize it or even lend always-on-top property to it.

macOS Sierra has quite a lot of interesting features including Siri, auto unlocks, universal copy and paste and more. No wonder, it has received positive reviews from both fans and tech experts.
