Apparently YouTube Decided to release picture-in-picture (PiP) mode for free accounts in Europe. On Reddit, users reported that they received this functionality even without a Premium subscription to the platform.

PiP is an exclusive feature of YouTube Premium subscription worldwide, except in the United States, where it has been available to everyone since 2022. This function allows you to continue playing the video in a floating window while browsing other applications.

Over the past few weeks, users residing in Europe have noticed that the resource is available for free. According to the publications, the tool will be released on both Android and iOS.

It’s unclear whether this is an intentional activation or just a localized test by YouTube. At the end of February, the official @TeamYouTube profile on X (formerly Twitter) emphasized that this function remains exclusive to YouTube Premium subscribers.

It is worth noting that the new product seems to be distributed only in Europe. in Brazil, PiP remains one of the benefits of YouTube Premium subscription.

Currently the monthly subscription fee for the Individual Plan is R$ 20.90. The new value goes into effect in September 2023.
