    Okay so Android has had the picture picture mode ever since pie 9. Just curious out of all of us with pixels and Android Q, how many of us here actually use picture in picture mode for Google maps or YouTube etc? I'll admit I don't use it nearly as much as I thought it would. When I'm watching YouTube I'm usually in full screen mode... when I'm GPSing in Google maps in the car I usually am still in full screen mode unless I have to multitask between a few different applications quickly.

    I use it a lot in Pie but it's not working for me in Q at all.

    It didn't work for me in Pie at all and not in the first 2 betas. But it works for me in beta 4

    Oh no I'm so sorry to hear that! ironically enough, picture in picture mode on my 3XL with Q beta 4 is one of the features that work smoothly as hell! Versus Android Auto and RCS messaging in Android messaging.

    I use it in maps but only when multi tasking for a few mins like you mentioned. Its handy for not missing turns when doing that

    Yeah picture and picture mode is working smoothly as hell in beta 4. Ironically though, I barely even use that feature at all.

    Haha yeah correct. And that's exactly what I meant in Google maps I realistically use picture and picture because you can visually see where the heck you are versus relying on voice guidance to tell you.

    Gotcha gotcha sounds good.
    Cute.
    Yep yep Zedge is usually my go to wallpaper application because all the wallpaper images are formatted correctly versus having to crop it which makes me more frustrated at the end of the day lol

    Thanks for the share. So for picture in picture you just back out to the home screen from YouTube? Can't believe I can't remember how this works...it's been a long day.

    Yep. That's what I did and it worked. I do have YouTube Premium so not sure if you need that as well.

    yep yep exactly, for YouTube/Google maps, whenever you're in the application just swipe up to exit out of the application to the home screen and the application will stay live running on the home screen.

    Still can't get it to work. I'm sure it will be fine on the final release. I've not reset my phone since I upgraded though.
