The YouTube site supports the mode even without a YouTube Premium subscription.

YouTube blocked the use of picture-in-picture mode immediately after the release of iOS 14‌, and has now changed its mind. Previously, the feature was only available to users with a Premium subscription, but now everyone can use it.

This applies to devices running iOS 14.0.1. Additionally, YouTube.com’s picture-in-picture mode works even in third-party browsers like Chrome and Firefox. Unfortunately, the YouTube mobile app still requires a subscription to use the mode and other features.

As a reminder, iOS 14 added picture-in-picture mode to the iPhone and iPod touch, and it has been on the iPad before. Thanks to the mode, you can watch video in a small window, displaying other things on the device.

The video window can be moved around the screen, and you can also swipe it to listen to audio only. Double-tapping the video will make the window larger or smaller.
