Oh, well, picture in picture on YouTube working for me. Watching video currently, while responding. I launched the YouTube app though. I use Firefox for a browser, chrome is disabled, because it allowed ads and doesn't allow me to install the Ad block plus' addon.
Please let me know how you're getting it to work. Are you on You Tube Red?.
Also no on Netflix!
Picture in Picture is working fine for me. Youtube Red. Opened a bunch of different apps, including Chrome.
Only works for Red - which is the subscription. Not for the free You Tube.
YouTube red doesn't give you picture in picture mode first of all. It just enables sound to be played in the background.
If I go ito Youtube.com in chrome on Desktop mode it will work. Not in app or otherwise.
I do use YouTube red, yes. I don't have Netflix. I use the app, go into full screen while playing a video, then hit the home button. The video shrinks to a lower corner, continuing to play. Then I launch another app.
Also, looking here, it seems like a Google issue How to Use Android Oreo's Picture-in-Picture Feature Pixel users complain about this too.
Try VLC. See if that works.
I don't have to be full screen, it just works. Sux that it could really be only available to YouTube red. What if I cancelled???
Took about 10 minutes to update. The update went very smooth and quick.
I ran LG smart cleaning just before update:
After update, ran smart cleaning again:
The update freed up almost 4GB space.
Also noticed that Amazon Assist was added without asking and can't be uninstalled.
So far what works: Videos in Chrome. You Tube will only work in Chrome if in Desktop mode. I understand YouTube Red is needed for it to work. Google Maps. MLB At Bat. Play movies & TV.
Not working: You Tube App (again might require Red). Chrome Generally. Netflix. Amazon Video.
Agree more space.
Not sure running any faster or cooler though.
I was excited because it was supposed to fix the Bluetooth issues. But sadly, it's much worse. Both my headphones and car audio randomly "skip" often. It's practically useless with Bluetooth audio now...
You might have a hardware problem. Never ever had that happen here
Have you noticed there's a Mobile Hotspot shortcut in the T-Mobile folder in the app drawer? You can drag that out to your home screen. Does that make launching the hotspot easy enough?
This is on Nougat, I haven't got Oreo yet, but I'm guessing it may be the same.
I wonder if what you're installing is the final release version, and if it will be pushed out next week. Or are you installing a "boo-boo" version? I can't imagine them pushing this out if Chrome is broken.
But it looks like you've proven they really are working on Oreo, and not lying about that. They've probably had an internal target date, but may not want to share that before they finish testing, because if they find problems that have to be fixed, the date might change. Seems like it has due to that "boo-boo" they told us about before.
And there are things that may be unique in the T-Mobile version other than the menus and apps. The phone has to work on T-Mobile's network (including unique bands like 71), roaming partners, international roaming, Wi-fi calling, DIGITS number sharing between devices, etc. It might be some of these differences that are slowing down the release (I know other carriers are supporting Wi-fi calling too now, after T-Mobile came out early with it). I've seen other threads where Wi-fi calling was unstable on another phone after an update, and another where people using their phones abroad got pop-up warnings about international data roaming that's supposed to be included in their plan. I didn't really expect they could get Chrome wrong though.
Sure, I want the update, but I also don't want a bad update, so I'll wait for them to push after it finishes and passes testing. Good to know from this though that they really have a release candidate coming.
You do realize this is the real update that's why it's being sent out through LG Bridge it will be released over the air also staged rollout.
