Google's engineers have been working for months to add Picture-in-Picture (PiP) support to the Google Chrome web browser, but the long-anticipated feature is finally here, enabled by default in the latest version for Linux, Mac, and Windows operating systems. The feature lets you detach a video in a floating window so you can watch it while doing something else on your computer. Picture-in-Picture (PiP) in Google Chrome works only on websites that implement this feature in their media player, but it can be enabled on any website with the Picture-in-Picture extension created by Fran??ois Beaufort. For YouTube videos, Chrome users will have to right-click twice on the playing video and choose the "Picture in picture" option.
