How to Activate YouTube's Picture-in-Picture Mode with GoLess

The world's leading video platform, YouTube, constantly innovates to enhance user experience. One such feature, designed for multitaskers and those on the go, is the picture-in-picture (PiP) mode.

You should have a YouTube Premium membership to use the picture-in-picture (PiP) feature to watch content across YouTube. If you don't have YouTube Premium and are in the United States, you can still use PiP, but you can't watch certain content, like music videos.

But what if you could use this mode without being a premium subscriber?

In this article, you will learn how to activate the picture-in-picture mode on almost all websites with a toggle. You will do this without coding knowledge with a powerful workflow from Goless.

What is Picture-in-Picture (PiP)?

Picture-in-Picture, often PiP, is a user-friendly feature on various platforms, including YouTube.

It lets you view videos in a small floating window that hovers above other active windows. This means you can watch a YouTube tutorial while drafting an email or continue your binge-watching spree while browsing the web. The floating video window can be resized and relocated per your preference, ensuring it never becomes a hindrance.

Why GoLess for YouTube's PiP Mode?

While the YouTube app for iPhone and iPad offers the PiP feature, it's primarily restricted to premium subscribers. However, GoLess's workflow empowers you to enjoy this feature on almost all websites, including YouTube, regardless of your subscription status.
