iOS 9 is likely to come to our eyes in this fall as every Apple user expected, which will bring us a set of new features and performance improvements. One of the most anticipated features of iOS 9 is the floating video window (Movies or FaceTime Calls), which is the true practice of Multitasking on iPad. You can keep watching movies or use FaceTime calls while using other apps. This is really cool.
Part 1. How to Keep Watching Videos While Using Other Apps
Picture in Picture of iOS 9 allows you to view videos in three sizes, and the videos can be dragged to four corners of the iPad screen. The Pip mode will be automatically launched when navigating to the home screen.

By simply tapping the PIP window once will bring up three buttons allowing you to return the video to its original location, play or pause the video, or close it.
Dragging the video window off to the side, a sliver of the video will remain viewable, which allows you drag it back into view. You can also move the window around to any of the four corners by holding down on it and dragging it across the screen.
If you play other media like a song or another movie while Picture in Picture is enabled, the PIP video will automatically pause.
