Hello. Have you checked pip settings? Just go to settings and type pip to see if app-wise pip permissions are granted. I have just read an article saying youtube requires YouTube Red subscription for pip option. I was able to use pip in vlc player, which works well. You should go fullscreen then select pip icon in playback menu, then you can hit home button to continue with other apps. Hope this helps.

You should start navigation then hit home button for pip, otherwise you see only homescreen.

Here is how to use pip with google chrome browser; click on a video link in chrome (other than a youtube video, interestingly youtube videos does not open in pip pop up window). swith video to fullscreen mode, then click home button. vois la! you just have chrome video in pip.

(i tested with turkish video site, just worked fine)

PIP works on Nokia 8, but for Youtube you need a Youtube Red subscription.

You can get it to work wirh Chrome if you go to for example theb play a video in fullscreen, swipe down from the top of the screen. You will then see the controls for the video like when you play music. Click anywhere on that bar except the actual control buttons. It's not perfect, obviously something wrong somewhere.
