Know this 'secret' feature of Google Chrome? Picture-in-Picture (PiP) Mode

Most people experience this, meaning you are watching a show or video on YouTube, Facebook, or any other video streaming service, but at the same time you have to do something else or browse the internet.

Then you have to open another tab on Google Chrome, from which you can listen to the video but can't watch it and there seems to be no solution. But did you know that Google Chrome has a feature that allows you to watch videos from YouTube or any service in any tab?

Picture in Picture mode has been available on YouTube for a long time. For this, if you open a video on YouTube, place the mouse cursor on its display, and right-click twice, then Picture in Picture mode will also appear in the Chrome menu. But this method does not work on every video service, but the solution is hidden in the global media control within Chrome. This feature has been available to users for a long time, appearing in the form of a music icon next to the URL tab.

This feature, called Global Media Control, works to control the music of a video playing on a tab in the browser, but it also facilitates the use of picture-in-picture mode. For example, open a video on Facebook and click on the Global Media Control icon and click on the Picture in Picture option and that's it. When you click on this icon, the video starts playing in a small window on the corner of the screen, which you can enlarge by dragging with the mouse

After using this feature, it is not necessary that you keep Google Chrome open, but even after minimizing it, the video will continue to play, even if you open Microsoft Word and start working on it.
