YouTube’s iOS app is finally getting picture-in-picture

Published

on

YouTube is bringing a long-awaited feature to its iPhone app: picture-in-picture (PiP). All Premium subscribers will soon have access to the viewer, and YouTube says it plans to enable PiP for all iOS users in the US.

“Picture-in-Picture allows users to watch YouTube videos in a small mini player while simultaneously browsing outside of the YouTube app on their mobile device,” a YouTube spokesperson told Engadget. “We’re starting to roll out PiP for YouTube Premium members on iOS, and plan to launch PiP for all US iOS users as well.”

Apple brought PiP to iPhone last year as part of iOS 14. Many video streaming apps already support the feature, including Netflix, Twitch, Amazon Prime Video, Disney+ and Apple TV. Even though it has supported PiP on Android since 2018, YouTube had been a notable holdout on iOS until its change of heart, which was first reported by MacRumors.

Some iOS users found workarounds to watch YouTube through PiP. It has sometimes worked via the YouTube mobile website and some people have accessed it through Shortcuts. YouTube hasn’t revealed the timeline for the PiP rollout, but eventually those workarounds will no longer be needed.

PiP support on the YouTube app is long overdue, and it’s nice to see that it won’t be just for Premium members, at least in the US. I’m personally looking forward to kicking back and watching chaotic Overwatch League matches on a mini player while reading reactions on Twitter.

Netflix’s ‘The Witcher’ plans include season 3 and a kids’ series

Published

on

No, Netflix isn’t done extracting every last drop of value from The Witcher. The streaming giant used its TUDUM event to tease a further expansion of its adapted fantasy series. There will be a third season of The Witcher, to no one’s surprise, but Netflix also revealed plans for a second anime movie and, believe it or not, a “kids and family” series — a bit odd for fantasy world loaded with sex, violence and colorful language.

The company didn’t provide release dates for any of the new projects. The second season of The Witcher premieres December 17th.

This isn’t a completely unexpected move. Netflix clearly enjoyed success with the first season of The Witcher, and it’s apparently confident enough in the second to prompt a renewal months in advance. The expansion would capitalize on that fandom and make it accessible to a much wider audience. It’s just a question of whether or not viewers are willing to follow along, especially when iconic characters like Geralt and Yennefer might not be involved.

Netflix’s ‘League of Legends’ series debuts November 6th

Published

on

Netflix’s long-in-the-making League of Legends show has a release date. The service has confirmed that its animated series Arcane will premiere November 6th at 10PM Eastern. Accordingly, a new trailer (below) sets the stage. It highlights the origins of sisters (and LoL heroines) Jinx and Vi as they fight both the dangers of hextech (magic harnessed by science) and the social inequalities between the rich city of Piltover and the undercity Zaun.

The series stars Into the Spider-Verse‘s Hailee Steinfeld as Vi and Army of the Dead‘s Ella Purnell as Jinx. Netflix and Riot are also banking on the show’s distinctive hand-painted style (which might be familiar to Riot fans) to stand out from other CG productions.

It’s not certain if Arcane will succeed, but Netflix has had some success with game-related shows like Castlevania — and that was for a franchise past its prime. A League of Legends series might thrive thanks to the MOBA title’s ongoing popularity… and, hopefully, its own merits.
