We’ve all done that thing where we keep a video open in a separate window while we work, but now Microsoftwants to make it easier for you to multitask with an official picture-in-picture feature.

The latest Insider build of windows 10 (15031) introduces a ‘Compact Overlay’ tool which developers can leverage, to createan always-on-top floating videowindows. MacOS,iOS, and someAndroid phones already let you do this, so it’s about time Windows caught up. That said, don’t expect to be able to use it just yet; I’m running build 15031 on my desktop and don’t see the feature yet in any apps.

“The most awesome stage”

Last year, Facebook's VP of Design thought the TNW Conference main stage was the best she'd ever been on.

FIND OUT WHY

Microsoft says it will show up in the Movies & TV app and Skypein imminent updates. Hopefully Edge is in the books as well, as I certainly watch many more videos on the web than in the defaultvideo app.

Really though, this problem could also be largely solved by Microsoft simply adding an always-on-top functionyou can use with any windowed app. Besides the fact that I don’t want to wait for devs to code the feature into their apps, I often want to pin non-videothings like Tweetdeck, RSS feeds, and my text editor so that I don’t get distracted when switching between windows, and I’d rather not have to use glitchy third-party software for it.

For now, I’m stuck doing the window resizing and rearranging dance.Perhaps forRedstone 3, Microsoft?

The other neat feature in the update is Dynamic Lock, which introduces the ability to automatically lock your computer when a Bluetooth device goes out of range. So if you live with sneaky roommates and have to head out in hurry, you don’t have to worry about them snooping around your computer once your paired phone leaves Bluetooth range.
