In every one of our Youtube app, we all use the mini player tray almost everytime we watch videos on Youtube. This feature lets us watch a video while searching or going through other videos on the platform. Now, the only downside is that this feature is only available on the the Youtube app and not on browsers. Desktop browsers cannot use the mini player tray because the feature was not readily available for it, but now it is.
A month ago, Youtube announced that they were releasing the mini player for desktop browsers to enable Youtube desktop users to be able to do the same thing that they do on the app. Finally, the feature has been launched this month with the release allowing users to continue browsing Youtube in the same browser tab while their video plays in the corner of their browser window.
To use this feature, you have to follow the same procedure that you use for the Youtube app. To use the mini player feature on desktop browsers, hover over the bottom of the video, and use the icons in the right-hand corner to select mini-player.
You can exit the mini-player by hitting the close sign (x) or escape keys on your keyboards. You can also control playlists, queues, and next videos directly through the minimized video.
