YouTube is one of the world’s most popular video platforms. It offers a variety of content, including tutorials, TV shows, and music videos.
YouTube now supports picture-in-picture on iOS 14, which reduces the video to a small window that you can move around the screen. This is a great feature for those who want to watch a video but also need to get work done.
How to minimize YouTube
If you’re using your iPhone to watch YouTube videos, you might want to minimize the video while using other apps. This can help you stay productive and save your battery life. There are a few ways to do this, depending on the version of iOS you’re using.
One way to minimize YouTube is to use the App Switcher. To do this, swipe up from the bottom of the screen to open the App Switcher. Once you’ve opened the App Switcher, tap on the YouTube app to minimize it. Note that minimizing YouTube via the App Switcher will pause the video playback.
Another way to minimize YouTube is to use Picture-in-Picture mode. This feature allows you to watch a video in a small window that floats on top of your other apps. To activate this feature, open the YouTube app and start playing a video. Then, swipe up from the bottom of the screen. The video will then be reduced to a smaller window that you can move around the screen and resize as needed.
You can also minimize YouTube by swiping left or right on the video player. The video will then shrink to a small mini-player that hides behind your phone’s bezels. The video can be brought back to the foreground by tapping on the arrow icon in the corner of the mini-player. You can also minimize the video by dragging it to the bottom of the screen. This is a great way to multitask and still listen to music or watch videos.
How to keep YouTube playing in the corner
If you are an iPhone user, then you probably know that the YouTube app has a feature called “Picture in Picture” (PiP). This feature allows you to watch videos while using other apps on your phone. It works by minimizing the video to a small window that you can move around your screen. It also lets you pause and resume playback of the video.
To use the PiP mode, first launch the YouTube app and start playing a video. Then, swipe up from the bottom of the screen to access the App Switcher. Once the app is minimized, you can tap on the icon in the corner of the screen to return to the video in a full-screen view. You can also drag the video to another part of your screen to resize it. To stop watching the video, swipe up from the bottom of the screen again to close the App Switcher.
You can also use the PiP mode in Safari by starting a YouTube video in the browser and then swiping up to open the Control Center. Once the video is in PiP mode, you can use other apps and browse websites in Safari while still watching the YouTube video. However, you should note that this method will only work if the video is playing in the background. If the video is in the foreground, you will have to exit the app or restart it to get it back into PiP mode.
If the PiP mode does not work on your iPhone, you may have a problem with your app settings or the phone’s hardware. If you are using a third-party launcher, it could be interfering with YouTube’s PiP mode. If this is the case, you can try switching to the stock launcher to see if it fixes the problem.
If you are a music lover, then you will probably appreciate the ability to listen to your favorite tunes while doing other tasks on your phone. Unfortunately, the iPhone’s limited screen size means that it is not always possible to do so. This is especially true if you are watching a video on YouTube. Fortunately, there are a few ways to keep the video playing in the background while you use other apps or even turn off your phone’s screen. To do so, you can either use the App Switcher or download a third-party app such as X.app. Both methods will allow you to use other apps and continue listening to the music while the video is playing in the background. You can even do so while your phone is locked or in sleep mode. The only downside to this method is that the audio will stop when you exit the App Switcher or turn off your phone’s screen.
How to keep YouTube playing in the background
When watching a video on YouTube, the audio will usually continue playing even after you minimize the app or turn off your phone screen. While this is a great feature for watching videos, it can be a pain when you’re trying to use other apps or browse the web. Fortunately, there are a few ways to keep YouTube running in the background without consuming too much of your mobile data.
One way is to use the Picture-in-Picture (PiP) mode on your iPhone. PiP allows you to watch a video in a small window while using other apps. To activate the feature, open the YouTube app and play a video. The video will shrink to a corner of your screen and you can move the window around the screen to adjust its size. You can also click on the video’s icon in the bottom left corner to return to full-screen viewing.
Another method is to use the YouTube desktop site. This is the best option if you’re on a slow connection or want to save your mobile data. You’ll be redirected to the desktop site, where you can keep YouTube running in the background while using other apps or turning off your screen. To do this, open the YouTube website and play any music video you want to here. When you switch to another app or turn off your phone’s screen, the video will stop playing. To continue listening, just reopen the site and press the play button again.
If you’re on a Wi-Fi network, you can also listen to YouTube in the background by using the YouTube app. You can do this by swiping up from the bottom of your phone’s screen to open the App Switcher and then tapping on the YouTube app. From there, you can drag the video to a corner of your screen and continue listening to the audio.
You can also minimize the YouTube app by pressing the home button on your iPhone. This will reduce the YouTube app to a small icon in the corner of your screen and allow you to use other apps. You can also use this technique to minimize other apps, such as Facebook and Twitter.
Keep in mind that playing YouTube videos on your phone will consume a lot of data, even if the video isn’t in full-screen view. If you’re on a limited data plan, consider lowering the video quality so you can still listen to it while saving data. In addition, you should only use this technique on a Wi-Fi network if possible. Otherwise, you may run out of data very quickly. If you’re unable to use a WiFi network, consider purchasing a high-speed data plan from your carrier. This will ensure that you can continue listening to your favorite music videos while avoiding overage charges.
