YouTube is Testing Picture-in-Picture for iOS 14

According to several reports from Twitter, it seems that YouTube is testing the feature out with a small group of users. It is unclear how they are selecting these users, but given that it is a small group, it’s safe to assume that they are testing it and probably won’t be rolling it out to the masses anytime soon.

Picture-in-picture is a feature that we’ve seen on Android phones in the past, but it’s not something that Apple has introduced to their iPhones, at least until iOS 14. However, the onus is still on developers to choose whether or not they want to support it, and it looks like YouTube is testing the feature out.

According to several reports from Twitter, it seems that YouTube is testing the feature out with a small group of users. It is unclear how they are selecting these users, but given that it is a small group, it’s safe to assume that they are testing it and probably won’t be rolling it out to the masses anytime soon.

Some users who have received the feature are also claiming that the feature is a bit limited where it apparently only works with live streams as opposed on-demand videos, but as we said, given that this is probably a test, it makes sense that YouTube is probably limiting the scope to see how well it works out.

It is a rather useful feature to have and would be great if iPhone users could continue watching YouTube videos while using other apps on their phones, so hopefully, YouTube will roll this feature out soon.

Calling all creative minds! WhatsApp is testing a new feature that uses AI to generate personalized avatars. Imagine yourself as a superhero, chilling on a beach, or even exploring space – the possibilities are endless! WABetaInfo discovered this feature in the latest Android beta update.

Here’s the tech behind the magic: a combo of user images, text descriptions, and Meta’s powerful AI, Llama. “Take photos of yourself once, then imagine yourself in any setting from the forest to outer space,” reads the screenshot on WhatsApp. The way it works is in the Meta AI Chat: users can type “Imagine in…” or “@Meta AI imagine me…” as a text prompt. A user’s likeness will then be used to generate the personalized image.

While there’s no official release date yet, this exciting feature is entirely optional. It joins the recently launched in-app custom sticker maker, showcasing WhatsApp’s commitment to fostering creativity within the app. This, alongside their ongoing development of AI chat functionalities, highlights Meta’s focus on making WhatsApp a platform that embraces both technological innovation and user expression.

YouTube’s New Eraser Tool Now Removes Songs Without Ruining Your Videos

Published

Good news for creators! YouTube has rolled out a major update to its eraser tool, allowing them to effortlessly remove copyrighted music from their videos without sacrificing other audio elements like dialogue or sound effects.

In a recent video, YouTube acknowledged that the previous version of the tool needed improvement in terms of accuracy. This new iteration addresses that concern by utilizing an AI-powered algorithm that precisely detects and removes unwanted songs while leaving the rest of the audio intact.

However, YouTube’s support page advises creators that the algorithm might not always achieve perfect separation. As an alternative, creators can opt to “Mute all sound in the claimed segments,” effectively silencing any portions potentially containing copyrighted material.

Once the edit is finalized, YouTube automatically removes the content ID claim, a system designed to identify the use of copyrighted material within videos on the platform. This allows creators to proceed with their uploads without copyright concerns.
