YouTube PiP (Picture-in-Picture) is a feature that allows you to watch a video in a small window while doing other things on your device. Siri Shortcuts, on the other hand, is a feature that enables you to automate tasks on your iOS device using voice commands. By combining these two technologies, you can create a Siri Shortcut that will enable YouTube PiP on your iOS device with just a voice command.
How To Use & Install Youtube PiP Shortcut
Here are the detailed steps:
- Install the YouTube PiP shortcut by clicking on the “Install Button” above and proceed to install.
- Install the Scriptable app from the App Store. This app is required for the YouTube PiP shortcut to work properly.
- Open a YouTube video in the YouTube app.
- To do this, launch the YouTube app on your device and search for the video you want to watch.
- Tap on the video to start playing it.
- Press the share button and select “More.” The share button is the square icon with an arrow pointing out of it. It is usually located in the bottom right corner of the screen or at the top of the app. When you tap the share button, a menu will appear with a list of options. Scroll down to the bottom of the list and tap on “More.”
- Run the YouTube PiP shortcut by selecting it from the list. The list of options will now show a section called “Shortcuts,” which contains all of the shortcuts you have installed on your device. Scroll down to the “Shortcuts” section and tap on the “YouTube PiP” shortcut.
- This will launch the shortcut and enter PiP mode for the YouTube video you are currently watching.
Pro tip: To make it easier to access the YouTube PiP shortcut, you can add it to your favorites in the share sheet. To do this, tap and hold on to the shortcut in the “Shortcuts” section, then drag it to the top of the list. This will move the shortcut to the top of the share sheet, making it more convenient to access in the future.
Benefits Of Using Youtube Pip Siri Shortcut
The benefits of using the YouTube PiP (Picture-in-Picture) shortcut on your iOS device are numerous. Here are some of the key advantages:
Multitasking: One of the primary benefits of using YouTube PiP is the ability to multitask.

This can make your YouTube-watching experience more enjoyable and less frustrating.
