    Has anyone gotten this working yet?

    It was my favourite reveal of the keynote and it either A: Isn't implemented yet or B: not supported on older Mac models which I really hope isn't the case.

    Also bonus info: Silverlight doesn't work in this release for those of you with Netflix addictions.

    It might be a Metal thing if it's written in a similar manner to iOS
    Does your mac have Siri?

    Haven't gotten it working on my 2015 rMBP. Can't find the option for it on YouTube or Vimeo (as they showed in the presentation).

    Not working over here on Twitch either, oddly.

    Ah--it seems that PIP might be a Safari-exclusive feature. Still not working on Twitch or YouTube in Safari, but it is working on Vimeo in Safari.

    Hopefully Google Chrome support will come soon....

    Netflix hasn't used Silverlight for a while now. It's all HTML5.

    Not if you're on an older Mac. HTML5 EDIT: for Netflix is only available on newer intel processors.

    Yep, it looks like this feature is limited to Safari and currently only available on Apple's HTML player. I wish this feature be system-wide. I would like to be able to use it in apps like QuickTime and FaceTime.

    Pity that YouTube does not support it. Hopefully it's just for now, because it would be THE reason for me to use Picture-in-Picture. :p

    Yeah YouTube will have to support it in their HTML5 player, just like AirPlay.

    Pure HTML5 on Netflix in Safari requires a 2011 Mac or later. Sorry I should have made that clear. It works fine for every other site, I have no idea why Netflix is the exception.

    Works for me on YouTube. I had to force the default right-click menu though, which can be done by right-clicking twice.

    Hey!! That does indeed work, thank you so much! :D

    This really is one of the features I'll be using a lot in Sierra. So handy IMO. No need to switch between tabs the whole time anymore. xD

    Youtube works if you Double right click on the video player which brings up the Apple Menu & then enter PIP.

    Nice find! Love this feature, does facetime also have this PIP built-in? I've never noticed?

    Great discovery.

    Pleased to report it works on my 2010 iMac too. I was so worried this was going to be restricted to newer Macs like handoff.

    Fantastic feature!!

    I was wondering this myself...

    Wondering about this as well. The apple website says that you can use PIP for Safari and iTunes videos, but I don't know if that means only those apps. You can use PIP with FaceTime on the iPad and it's extremely useful there, so I hope they didn't leave that out of Sierra.
