During Google I/O in May it was stated that all google apps will get Picture In Picture mode update. Here the feature was never officially added to the app during developer previews. Picture-in-picture mode is one of Android Oreo’s new additions, YouTube, Google Play Movies, and Google Maps are the notable servies using it, Google Duo is joining that list now. Now it is available to the Oreo user’s officially.
Justin Uberti, technical lead for Duo, announced on Twitter last night that picture-in-picture support was finally available for Android Oreo users. As you’d expect, this functionality takes the video chat you are in and keeps it on-screen in a smaller window so you can do other things while on a call. Triggering it is as simple as hitting the home button.
