Reliance Jio has come up with an updated version of its Jio TV Android app, bringing picture-in-picture (PiP) support. The PiP support is a much-demanded feature for the media apps as it allows users to watch the content even when they are in the middle of other tasks on their smartphone.
Reliance Jio notes that the picture-in-picture support in Jio TV is limited to devices running on Android 8.0 Oreo or above i.e. smartphones that natively support that feature. The updated Jio TV app is now available for download from the Google Play Store.
Jio TV team wrote in the official changelog as “To take your viewing experience a notch higher, we bring you Picture-in-Picture feature. Now you can continue watching Jio TV while you chat, browse or do more with your phone.”
Google had introduced the support for picture-in-picture mode in Android 8.0. It is a special multi-window mode, which lets the users watch a video in a small window while doing other tasks on the device.
Jio TV Android version’s changelog does not mention any other new features that have been introduced in the new version.
