YouTube is just now going to start rolling out support for picture-in-picture in the official app. But with one giant catch:
It’s only rolling out to people in the U.S., Americans, those of the States United. If you want to use it outside America, you know, in the other 96% of the known world, you have to pay for YouTube Premium. Which just makes all the kind of sense that doesn’t.
Now, that is in line with what YouTube has previously done on Android. Live free and PiP Hard in America, pay to PiP Play everywhere else.
