Apple has released a beta version of tvOS 13 which include a picture-in-picture (PIP) mode. This comes after Apple recently announced the new version of tvOS at the WWDC event, where most of the new features were announced and surprisingly the PIP mode was not spoken about which rather makes this feature something to look forward in the public version of tvOS 13.
The PIP feature was discovered by Twitter user Nikolaj Hansen-Turton who came across a new option to play the video in a separate minimized window. This means that you can play any video in the PIP mode while you can keep browsing through the content on Apple TV on the background. This could be useful for users who just want a sneak peak into a TV show or movie while making up their mind whether to watch the same or play something else based on the reviews or popularity.

A video was also shared by Nikolaj which shows the content playing in a minimized mode while the usual navigation is happening on Apple TV. The PIP mode was first introduced in the iPad when iOS 9 was launched. This was to help users with multi-tasking when working on different Apps. The same PIP experience could be coming to Apple TV, but as of now it is only available in the beta version.
Apple will also be coming up with the Apple TV+ video streaming service soon which will include exclusive content from the top Hollywood production houses and the investment running behind it also huge.
