Starting Wednesday, a new feature rollout for YouTube TV will allow content to be played back in a smaller window on iPhone and iPad.
YouTube TV picture-in-picture support for iOS and iPadOS is now rolling out for all users. The feature was initially tested on YouTube Premium subscribers in August.
The official YouTube TV Twitter account announced the soft launch in a tweet.

We're happy to share that picture-in-picture is now rolling out to your iOS 15+ devices. Simply select a video to watch and swipe from the bottom of the screen to return to the device's homepage. The video can scale down and move across your screen.
The feature will allow the video to stay on the screen in a minimized player with concentrated playback controls. There will also be an option to hide the player for audio-only streaming.
