YouTube has disabled the experimental picture-in-picture mode for its iOS app, nine months after the trial of the feature started.

The streaming video service enabled PiP on iOS as an “experimental” feature for the app in August 2021. By April 2022, it appears that YouTube has decided the feature isn’t worth keeping.

The experimental feature, previously visible on the YouTube.com/New page, has been removed from view. There is also no option to enable or disable the feature in the app, as the website states that it is “disabled”.

Despite it being disabled, it seems that some users can still access it at this point. 9to5Google says that some users who have enabled the feature before will still be able to enjoy PiP, at least until the app disables it completely.

Not all YouTube users were able to use Picture-in-Picture as it has only been available to Premium subscribers since its launch in 2021.

Although Picture-in-Picture is disappearing from the main YouTube app, some users can still take advantage of the feature through YouTube TV. The television streaming package made the feature possible in March.
