Picture-in-Picture allows you to play videos from one app while you go on about using your iPhone as usual. The video will continue to play in a small thumbnail window, allowing two apps to multitask on your iPhone.
While the ability to view videos in a floating window is great if you are a multitasker, like if you are texting someone or browsing the web. However, it can get annoying if you want to close the app and do something else but the video you were watching automatically starts playing in PiP mode. Thankfully, there is a way to disable this.
