If you have found usefulness with the native Picture-in-Picture mode in Oreo, you’ll be happy to learn that the Netflix app nows supports it. The only catch is, you need Android 8.1 (currently in developer preview), making this an exclusive feature to Pixel and select Nexus owners for the foreseeable future.

With this feature, folks can start watching whatever movie or TV show they want on Netflix, hit the home button, then continue watching their title within a little window while they get other things done on their device.

Personally, it’s hard to multi-task with PiP, only because I find myself getting distracted easily by whatever it is I’m watching. Maybe others have more self control than me.

Anyway, if you want to check this out for yourself, make sure you’re on Android 8.1, then grab the latest version of the Netflix app on Google Play.
