You can now watch YouTube with iPhone's Picture in Picture mode without a premium account

This is a pleasant surprise: YouTube’s mobile website now allows Picture in Picture mode on an iPhone running iOS 14. 

This means that you can fire up YouTube in Chrome or Safari (so, not the YouTube app, which still doesn’t support the feature), start a video, turn on Picture in Picture mode (it becomes available after you maximize the video), and continue browsing or go to another app with the video playing in a small floating window. 

Best of all, this works without a YouTube Premium account, which is typically needed for watching YouTube videos while doing other things.
