Netflix Spotted Testing a Pop-Out, Picture-in-Picture Video Player on Desktop

Published

Who doesn’t like to binge-watch TV shows and run movie marathons on Netflix? But what if you’d like to get something done on the side as well? It may sound like a first world problem but we’ve all come across this question every once in a while. Well, Netflix is listening and the company seems to be testing a new feature that could let you watch content on top of other windows and apps.

Netflix seems to be testing a new ‘pop-out player’ that lets users watch content in a floating window. Users need to click on a small icon at the bottom of the Netflix player. Clicking on it will open a new window that plays the content. It can be resized and repositioned. It seems to work like a regular picture-in-picture mode available with other players.

Once the content is playing in the pop-out player, the main window will tell you that your pop-out player is currently working and to switch back to the main window you’ll have to click on ‘Watch Here’. The pop-out player doesn’t use the native picture-in-picture mode offered by Safari or Chrome.

The upcoming feature was first spotted by Engadget which claims one of its staff members has the pop-out player enabled for their account.

Netflix’s pop-out player seems like a good way to watch Netflix content while you’re multitasking as the pop-out player stays on top of other windows and apps. The pop-out player doesn’t support subtitles right now.

It seems like Netflix is testing the new feature with a select set of users as of now. We couldn’t find this on our Netflix account in India yet. Netflix responded to a query posted by Engaged with an image that says, “This is only a test.” The feature may slowly roll out to everyone else soon.

Android Sleep API to make sleep tracking apps more efficient

Published

There has been perhaps an overabundance of focus on activity trackers, most of them targeting, well, activities. While movement and exercise are, of course, important, they aren’t the only measures of a healthy lifestyle. Sleep is just as important, perhaps even more so these days. In an effort to help app developers and, consequently, users develop better sleeping habits, Google … Continue reading
