Google will allow users to manually resize the picture-in-picture window of Android 11

Google previously introduced a picture-in-picture mode in Android Oreo, which allows users to shrink the video they are watching into a small window, which becomes a picture-in-picture window that can float above other applications, this feature is useful and convenient, however, users cannot manually adjust the size of the picture-in-picture window of the video according to their own needs, which makes some users very unsatisfied.

At present, Google has set a default PIP window size in AOSP (Android Open Source Project). This value is used to adjust the ratio of the PIP window size to modify the size of the mobile phone display.

However, according to the findings of the XDA forum developers, Google is developing a function that allows users to adjust the size of the picture-in-picture window. The developer found a new “PipResizeGestureHandler” class in SystemUI in Android Developer Preview 2, which belongs to “com.android.systemui” instead of “com.google.android.systemui”, which means that the function is not only an exclusive feature for Pixel phones but also a feature that all Android 11 users can experience.

Google expects to officially release the Android 11 system later this year, having previously suddenly released the first Android Developer Preview version in February.
