I recently told you about a project that brings built-in Picture in Picture support to Chrome and other browsers. A code change submitted to Chromium repository suggests that we will get “Previous Track” and “Next Track” links too with Picture in Picture.
The Code – Picture in Picture
Google is not just adding Picture in Picture to Chrome. They are actively contributing to a browser API that developers can use to implement auto-Picture in Picture across multiple browsers.
Right now, PiP window supports Play and Pause buttons. When this change goes live, we will be able to switch tracks, or watch previous / next videos on a YouTube playlist etc from the PiP window itself.
Here is a screenshot:
That’s it guys. Go back to whatever you were doing 🙂
