Google to roll out picture-in-picture mode for Maps soon

One of Android Oreo’s main new features is picture-in-picture mode, which launches apps into little windows that go over other apps. The feature was added to Google Maps a couple weeks ago, but it wasn’t functioning properly until a few days ago. Even now, it isn’t fully working, with PiP windows sometimes not triggering when users hit the home button during navigation.┬áThat said, Google is saying that this will be fixed soon, marking the official rollout of PiP for Maps.

Thus, if you are experiencing issues with Google Maps and picture-in-picture mode on your Android 8.0 Oreo-powered device, your problems should be resolved within the coming weeks as the feature fully rolls out.
