Hello, I am appearing with you a green bar showing up when you start, end connections visible on video.
I have this bug probably from the beginning of iOS12, someone will confirm at home?
On iOS 11 I am glad that it was not a problem.

Why do you keep asking this with every minor beta update? And where do you expect to see/use PIP?
Pip works perfectly in the youtube app and on the tube extreme app. I’ve also seen it on android phones and it’s actually pretty useful. If not for video having a persistent navigation window while using another app.
