Apple has quietly added Picture-in-Picture (PiP) support in the second developer beta of Apple TV’s operating system tvOS 13.
The PiP mode was first introduced by Apple in iOS 9 as a multitasking feature for the iPad.
The feature lets users start a video in full-screen, then switch apps and continue watching the playing video in a thumbnail.
Apart from the PiP mode, tvOS 13 includes several new changes to Apple TV like a redesigned Home screen with new Top Shelf experience.
The updated tvOS also comes with added multi-user support to let families have separate Watch Next queues to avoid interference with each other’s recommendations.
However, there is a possibility that the PiP mode might not make it into the final tvOS update very soon, given that it was not announced at Apple’s recently-held WWDC 2019.
