With macOS Sierra, Apple introduced Picture-in-Picture mode for Safari. While the feature is definitely handy, Safari is not widely used by everyone despite it being faster and more resource efficient. Most Mac users primarily use Chrome as the browser of their choice for all the features it offers.
Sadly, Google has not yet implemented Picture-in-Picture support in Chrome which is a bit disappointing. On the bright side, the company is working on bringing this feature to its browser across all platforms, and while the feature is not yet ready for primetime, you can still enable it if you wish to.
You will have to install the Canary build of Chrome for this which comes with its own share of bugs and issues, but then you are also getting the bleeding edge version of Chrome that is available. Follow the steps below to know how you can enable Picture-in-Picture in Chrome on your Mac.
