The app on iOS will soon be getting picture-in-picture support. It will allow users to watch videos while doing other things on their iPhones and iPads.

A spokesperson told The Verge that the feature is currently rolling out to Premium subscribers and that a launch for all iOS users (including the free ones) in the US is in the works.

Apple added support for picture-in-picture video for iPads with iOS 9, and brought it to iPhones with iOS 14.

Since then, YouTube's support for the feature on iPhones and iPads has been spotty -- it works for if you're using Safari (though some have reported it doesn't work for non-Premium subscribers); users have only been able to access the feature periodically.

That complication seems to be going away, at least for those in the US: iOS users, with or without a Premium subscription, will soon have access to it using the YouTube app as Android users have for years.

YouTube did not provide a timeline for when the feature would arrive for free users, but stated the rollout to Premium subscribers is in progress.
