Google Chrome Video Support Available on Android O

If you’re a fan of everything Android, you most likely are familiar with the picture-in-picture video viewing mode from Android TV. Now this feature that Android TV has had for a while is also coming to phones and tablets thanks to Android O and Google Chrome. Android O is also known as Android 8.0.0 and is the upcoming version of Google’s beloved mobile operating system.

Although the final stable version was scheduled to launch early this fall, Android O might actually enjoy a late summer launch seeing as how rapidly things are progressing with its beta testing program. If you want to take Android O for a spin before it launches officially, you can enroll in the Android developer program and test it out now. If you’re not a member, you can’t get the beta version.

But enough about that, let’s see what this new mode is all about. Keep reading how to get PiP support for your videos with Android O and Google Chrome.

Chrome 61 Dev is the Key

Chrome also has its developer program, and it’s called Chrome Dev. In Dev, Chrome is currently at version 61. A feature that Chrome 61 has on Android O devices is picture-in-picture video mode. Those with access to the beta testing version of Android 8.0.0 can try it out right now. All you have to do is open a video in full screen on the Chrome developer channel version, then tap on the Recents button twice. This will enable the picture-in-picture video mode.

However, some people are also getting this perk on their stable Chrome 59 browsers, but this doesn’t seem to apply across the board. If you want to test this feature out, you can do so today. And if you do, let us know what you think.
