With the Android O release, Google finally added one of the most-requested features to Android. The picture-in-picture mode, which allows the users to watch videos (especially YouTube) and do other things in a floating window while you use other apps, is one of the highlight features of Android Oreo and users have been loving it. But thanks to the long-existing fragmentation issue, a majority of Android users don’t even have the new Oreo update and thus, the picture-in-picture mode is out of the question. So, if you had been wanting to use this feature on your device, I’ve got this post which will help you to get this on any Android device you’re having in your hands.

Using an add-on app to emulate the picture-in-picture functionality on your Android device is possibly the best option available for use. The benefits being that you get to stick to the existing YouTube app and enjoy the videos you usually watch. For this, you can use the Float Tube Video app and follow the steps below to make it work:
1. Open the YouTube app on your Android device, play the video you want to watch in PiP mode and tap on the “share” button underneath the video title.
2. From the sharing screen, tap the “Float Tube Video” icon and you’ll see the video starts playing inside this app. Now, you’ll need to tap the icon at the bottom right of the video player (the one we’ve marked) to make the video go into picture-in-picture mode.
