Tech giant Google to bring picture-in-picture mode for Meet app



Tech giant Google has announced that it is bringing Picture-in-Picture (PiP) support to its video conferencing app, in addition to pinning multiple video feeds.

The new functionality allows users to see up to four video tiles in a meeting as displayed in a floating window, Android Central reports.

Enabling the new picture-in-picture is relatively easy. Users of a Google Meet call can right-click during the conference and select ‘Open picture-in-picture’.

The video call window appears immediately without the need for secondary extension support.

The feature was first announced in March, although it seems it will be some time before it finally arrives.

With Google Meet, it seems that the feature is easier to access in Chrome by default, which is quite useful, the report said.
