MX Player is one of the most popular video player apps available on the Play Store with loaded features. The app is really powerful enough yet simple to use as your daily driver. It offers most kinds of video formats and subtitles, encoder version, audio format, etc. Recently, the MX Player app supports Chromecast feature for online streaming content. Now, the developers have added another useful feature called Picture-in-Picture mode. MX Player gets PiP Mode now which you can download from the link given below.
Steps to Enable PiP Mode on MX Player App
The MX Player V1.11.3 is rolling out to users now and features PiP mode. The PiP mode can be easily turned on. You just need to go to the Player options once you’ve got a video running. Then you will see a smaller arrow icon beside the screen rotation button. Now, select the PiP icon. The PiP mode will enable then go to the home screen and still you will be able to play the video in a window frame easily.
The PiP window is fully responsive so that you can easily drag it to any place on your screen and even convert to full-screen mode as well. You will also be able to skip, forward, back, and pause easily from the PiP window via control buttons. So that you don’t even need to go to the full-screen mode further. The settings gear icon in the corner will take you to the Android Settings toggle that allows the app to go full-screen. Make sure it won’t open the app’s settings menu by default which is a good move by the team.
