Check How to Use Chrome PiP in Windows

For almost three years, Google has been working on a picture-in-picture mode for Chrome’s desktop. This functionality allows you to play any movie in PiP mode on any platform. It is one of the unique features of the browser, but it is only available with the help of a Chrome flag or an extension. In this article, we will discuss both options to enable Picture-in-Picture (PiP) mode in Google Chrome on your computer in the year 2021.

The methods mentioned here work on all recent versions of Google Chrome, including Chrome 87, the latest stable channel. Chrome v70 added the feature, however it is still buried behind a flag. However, enabling the feature is much easier today than it was three years ago, when you had to enable many indicators to achieve it. So today we will see how to use Picture-in-Picture mode in Google Chrome on desktop.

Method 1: using the built-in PiP mode

The PiP mode built into Google Chrome is easy to enable and works perfectly on most sites. Here’s how to do it:

  • Open Chrome. Then type chrome: // flags in the address bar of the browser and hit Enter. Now find the Global Media Controls Picture-in-Picture flag in the Flags search box.
  • The setting is likely to be ‘Default’. Click on that button and select “Enabled” from the drop-down menu. Now restart Chrome.
  • Go to YouTube and start playing any video. Now double right click in the video to access the hidden menu that will offer you the option ‘Picture in picture’.
  • Now you can use PiP mode on YouTube and drag the video window anywhere on the screen.

Method 2: use an extension

The built-in picture-in-picture mode for Google Chrome works fine on some sites, like YouTube, but doesn’t work on other video-sharing sites like Dailymotion. This is exactly where you should use the ‘Picture in Picture Extension’ for Google Chrome. It is created by Google itself and it works on most of the sites I tested, including Dailymotion. To use it, install the Picture-in-Picture extension (free). Now go to a video site, like YouTube, Dailymotion or any other, and start playing a video.

  • Now click on the media controls icon in the upper right corner and click on the PiP icon to display a video. You can also press Alt + P on Windows or Option + P on Mac simultaneously to get the same effect.
  • Once you do any of the above, the video will play in a separate window that can be dragged anywhere on the screen and resized at your choice.
  • You can click the “X” in the top right corner of the player (visible when you hover your mouse over the video) to return it to the original tab.
