Picture-in-picture will work with Netflix on Android 8.1
Picture-in-picture is one of the most anticipated features of Android 8.0 (Oreo). With PiP, users can watch a video "floating" on the screen even while doing something else with their handset. They can also drag the video around to one of the screen's corners if they so desire. Currently available on such Google apps as YouTube, Maps, Chrome (in full-screen only) and Duo, the recently released Android 8.1 beta reveals that streaming video app Netflix will be supporting Picture-in-Picture once Android 8.1 is installed on an Android flavored phone.
Deploying the new feature is a snap, as well. So let's say you're planning on binge watching the latest season of Fuller House, but you also need to do some work on your phone. Once the video starts playing, tapping on the home button will reduce the size of the window (Honey, I shrunk my Netflix video!) which allows you to do your work even while you are viewing the latest mischief involving the Tanners and Gibblers.
As we said, the Netflix support for Picture-in-Picture won't appear until Android 8.1 is installed on your handset. That means that it could still be weeks if not months before you can prove how well you multitask by streaming your favorite shows while working with your phone at the same time.
