Unlike Tab groups, Video Picture in Picture (PiP) has been around in Edge but wasn’t pronounced so it wasn’t actively used. Microsoft is redesigning the feature to be more accessible.
This feature enables users to watch videos in a previewed way at the corner of their screen. In Microsoft’s Edge version 93, this feature will be within reach via a hover toolbar.
Videos can be minimized, paused, maxed out, and more by scrubbing through the hover toolbar. All of these features are expected to appear in September.
Another change coming to Edge is its availability on the Linux platform, starting in October it will be available to download.
