    Does anyone know if there is a way to watch YouTube videos (via the app), on a Note 8, but, have it running in a small window, while you're doing other things on the device, like text messaging, etc.?

    I know how to make the app be a small screen while IN the YouTube app. But, can't seem to merely have that same window just on my 'desktop' of the Note 8.

    I'm sure it is something simple I'm missing. Thanks in advance

    I believe you need to make sure, in Settings->Multi Window that pop-up view action is on

    (Someone keep me honest)

    Yes, Chrome will... I got it by requesting desktop site and only having 1 tab open.

    You are correct but the flow on my TMO N8 is Settings>Advanced features>Multi Window>Pop-up view action (On)

    I got it once.. Where is your initial contact? Can you do it on the first try every time?

    I think if you switch windows it will close YouTube however. To do this you need YouTube Red.

    Almost every time. Initial contact point is the area between the pull down (menu area) and the area above the home icon (upper left corner). I feel the phone vibrate and then I know I got the spot.

    Multi-window will minimize the whole YouTube app, but not the actual video window. It will allow you to use other apps, but if you click on the menu button, the video will pause and not run in the background.

    Was racking my brain trying to remember where I just saw that option. Now I remember, it was a youtube video from today about Oreo 8.0 That is one of the new options. Not sure how long before we get it though, probably a good while...
