2 minute read

Chrome Blue

Calling all multitaskers: The Picture in Picture Viewer Chrome extension lets you watch YouTube videos, take a Hangout call, or read a website in a browser panel that floats on top of your other windows, so that you can do multiple things at once.

  • Head to the Chrome Web Store and search for Picture in Picture Viewer. Click the Add to Chrome button button to install it.
  • Head to chrome://flags/#enable-panels. In the dropdown menu in the Panels section, select Enabled.


  • You’ll have to restart the browser, so click Click Relaunch now.
  • Let’s open another site in a new tab. Click on the Picture in Picture icon in the Chrome extension bar in the upper right-hand corner. This will opens up a new Picture in Picture panel. This is a great way to view some content while your primary window is open in the background.



  • Alternatively, you can also just enter a URL for any site you want to visit and just add #panel to the end of the URL.



  • This will automatically open up the URL in the Picture in Picture panel.
