Did you know your LG TV has an excellent feature called PIP mode or picture in picture mode? The PIP mode in your LG smart TV allows you to watch videos and use other apps or play multiple videos simultaneously.
Not many people know about this feature yet.
The PIP mode basically brings a floating window on the screen or splits your LG TV screen in half, allowing you to play two different content on each side or access two inputs simultaneously.
So let’s see how to use PIP in your LG TV.
How To Get PIP on LG TV?
To enable PIP mode on your LG TV, grab the remote and press the Settings button. Select the Multi-View option and select PIP mode. On older models, head to Settings > Options > PIP and enable it.
Depending on the manufacturing year and model of your LG TV, the settings to enable PIP mode or multiview mode change.
