We have some plans for supporting PIP in future.
But, It may need lot works as MX Player is very complicated in nature when compared to others. So, we can't provide any timelines about the availability.

Just to get a clearer picture
  1. Did you start working on it already or is it just a plan for the future?
  2. Do you reckon it'll take days, weeks or months until a release?

Development of new features are slow as snail, with new VLC 3 I'm dumping MX Player completely, used it since it's inception. Time to move on.

I Have vlc 3 and it's much more polished than before. You just press home for the pip instead of navigating your way to so it. I HAVE no idea what mx hasn't added it. I know that they are capable. It's got to be one of the most featured requests. Android P dev preview will be out first though ha.

It's been some eight months since we started asking about PIP. Still no road map?

Have others started moving away from Mxplayer and to VLC?

Vlc wastes 5 times the amount of battery MX player does. Probably the complexity the dev was talking about. It's not an option for me. I'll manage MX till PiP is supported
