This is a great addition to the Global Media Controls. Earlier it was of no value to me, but with PiP control, I will use it more often. This is way useful because some sites disable the context menu, so I had to use PiP extension & extension to enable the right click menu. Thanks for reporting it! :D
Btw are they planning to enable it natively without the use of a flag?

It'd be nice if this could render in full screen apps on macOS. Perhaps this would require using macOS's native PiP feature (like in Safari, which does support full screen apps).

@HotCakeX I am testing it right now on my Surface Pro 7 and it's working very well; great to casually watch a video and do some research or whatever too. Could imagine this also helping out a lot of people during the Pandemic when they can watch a lecture like this and take notes at the same time!
My two cents are: Add pinch-to-zoom for the PiP window to improve the experience.
Other and than that, great feature!

@HotCakeX is there any way to seek forward and backward from keyboard shortcuts?

@HotCakeX Now it's 2021 and edge version 92 is publicly available but still this feature isn't enabled by defalt.a:pouting_face::pouting_face::pouting_face:. Enable it by default.
