Use picture-in-picture on your Apple TV with the Apple TV app

Can't decide what to watch? Use picture-in-picture viewing to play two videos at once, or browse the Apple TV app while a video plays in the corner of your screen.

Picture-in-picture is available on Apple TV 4K and Apple TV HD with the latest tvOS

Turn on picture-in-picture

  1. Play a movie or TV show in the Apple TV app. 
  2. Tap the Touch surface on your Siri remote to bring up the video timeline.
  3. Swipe up on the Touch surface to highlight , then click the Touch surface to select it. If you don't see , you're not in the Apple TV app and picture-in-picture isn't supported. 
  4. The video will shrink to the bottom-right corner of your screen.

To watch another video in full screen while your video window plays in the corner, find something else to watch in the Apple TV app and just click play.
