It’s been about a month since I started testing macOS High Sierra. Loaded with a great many smart features, the latest macOS has been developed to rock. I bet, you would have to try it to believe if you haven’t yet put your hands on it.
Personally, one of my favorite features in macOS High Sierra is Picture-in-Picture which allows you to watch any video while using any app. As for instance, you can edit a photo while watching any interesting video. The best thing about it is that the video will continue to play even if you switch apps.
Indeed, PiP is a fantastic multitasking feature. Though it may not be a new invention as this functionality has existed for quite some time, you would enjoy using it on your Mac. All geared to make the most of PiP? Let’s give it a try today!
How to Enable and Use Picture-in-Picture on macOS High Sierra
- Web developers have to use API (given by Apple) to make PiP available.
- If a site doesn’t support PiP, you won’t be able to use it.
- As of now, PiP supports only Safari web browser.
Step #1. First off, you need to launch Safari on your Mac and visit any site which has the support of PiP.
Step #2. Now, find any video which you want to use in PiP mode and start playing it.
Step #3. Next up, you have to click on the PiP icon on the video control bar.
That’s done! Now, a small video window will appear in a corner of your screen.
You have the option to place the video window at any corner of your Mac screen. To do so, simply drag it to the desired corner.
The PiP window can’t be placed in the middle of the screen as it remains only in a corner.
If you want to disable or turn off Picture in picture mode, simply click on the tiny icon on video.
The option to enable PiP mode in YouTube is slightly under the wraps. Head over to this quick guide to know how it works.
Give this new functionality a quick try and let us know your feedback about the same in the comment.
