Google Meet is gaining new abilities for Chrome browsers on the web. The company has announced that it’s bringing picture-in-picture support to its video conferencing app alongside pinning multiple video feeds. With the new functionality, users can see up to four video tiles in a meeting as it appears in a floating window.

Enabling the new picture-in-picture is relatively simple. Users on a Google Meet call can right-click during the conference and select “Open picture-in-picture.” The video call window pops out immediately without the need for secondary extension support.

The feature was first announced back in March, although it seems it’s taken some time to finally arrive.
