Netflix Tests Pop-Out Picture-in-Picture Player on Desktop

Netflix is testing a new pop-out picture-in-picture feature that’s designed to let Netflix users watch videos in a small floating box that hovers above other applications, reports Engadget.

The pop-out player allows users to click a small icon at the bottom of the screen. Once the pop-out window appears, it can be resized and positioned anywhere on a computer’s display.

The pop-out player is designed to stay on top of whatever else you’re doing on your computer, and it can be closed by clicking the X in the player, choosing Back to Browse, or closing the Netflix tab. Subtitles are not currently supported in the pop-out browser.

Netflix appears to be testing the feature with a limited number of users at the current time, and Netflix has yet to announce the feature. Netflix did confirm to Engadget that the pop-out player is “only a test” in an image, so it’s not clear when and if the player will roll out to additional users.
