    I'm having the same issue. Google support says they are working on the problem. Also said to get it to work on YouTube, you need a Red subscription.

    Troubleshooting Picture-in-Picture (PiP) Issues on Android 8.0 Oreo

    Hey All,

    We want to include some extra information about one of the newest Android features, Picture in Picture (PiP)!
    Using picture-in-picture:
    How to keep watching a video and use a different app depends on the video app.
    On your device, open an app and play a video.
    Depending on the video app, either:
    Tap Home Home.
    Tap Picture-in-picture Picture-in-picture.
    To close the video, drag the video off the bottom of the screen.
    You can drag the video window anywhere on the screen. To make the video big again, tap the video and then Full screen Full screen.

    If you cannot access PiP, here are a few things to keep in mind:
    A YouTube Red subscription is required for PiP to work with the YouTube app. Currently YouTube Red is only available in select countries
    You can play a non-youtube video in Chrome or a preview of a movie in Play movies and use PiP
    For Chrome, PiP works with videos playing from sites when the video is playing in the fullscreen mode
    Make sure the app you are using supports PiP. Some first party apps that are supported include Duo, Play Movies, Maps, Chrome
    If you have checked the information above, please follow these troubleshooting steps:
    Clear app cache for the specific app
    Boot your device in safe mode and test
    Contact our support team either through the settings menu, or by clicking "Contact us" in the upper right-hand corner of the help center
    Let us know how it goes!

    I don't use Chrome, Duo or WhatsApp, etc., and I don't subscribe to YouTube Red. Basically, in my case, PIP is pretty much a non-feature. I'm aware of this so I'm not really expecting anything much from this highly touted feature. That said, I have a feeling that there will likely be a number of very annoyed people who will have expected this feature to "just work."

    It works for me on my VZW XL. PIP is pretty friggin cool when you want to browse some twitter and watch a video.

    Open chrome, put YouTube.com, on top right 3 dots click and choose request desktop site, pick video to watch and start video and then full screen and then click home button and there you go picture in picture without having YouTube red
