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.
