Netflix Updated With Picture in Picture Support for Compatible iPads

netflixlogoNetflix for iOS was today updated with a highly desired and long-awaited new feature, Picture in Picture support. Introduced in iOS 9, Picture in Picture is an iPad multitasking capability that allows a video that's playing to be minimized to a corner while other apps are open.

With Picture in Picture support, iPad users can now watch TV shows and movies on Netflix while doing other things on their iPads.

Picture in Picture is available on the iPad Air, iPad Air 2, iPad mini 2, iPad mini 3, iPad mini 4, 9.7-inch iPad Pro, and 12.9-inch iPad Pro. iOS 9.3.2 is required to take advantage of Picture and Picture in Netflix.

Today's Netflix update also includes unspecified bug fixes and stability improvements.

Netflix can be downloaded from the App Store for free. [Direct Link]

The wait for this has been more (maybe) insane than the wait for a new macbook pro.

Flip the freaking switch developers.....

They didn't add a button! You have to leave the app while video is playing.

Doesn't seem to support iOS 10? Or I can't seem to figure out how to enable picture in picture on my iPad Pro.

Still need ability to download for offline viewing.


Definitely. I understand if they can't on the shows they license (may not have the rights to allow downloads), but they certainly should allow it for the shows they themselves produce.

Ok, I shut down my iPad and rebooted. Netflix pip is working now.

Can confirm this fixed my issue with public beta 9.3.3
