If you’re used to watching videos while working on something else, here’s a way to get YouTube Picture-in-Picture on iPad.

While the YouTube app finally supports Split View on the iPad, it still takes up half of your screen.

If you’re using iPadOS 13 or higher on your iPad or iPad Pro, you can use the new support for desktop websites in Safari and the browser’s built-in video player as a workaround to play YouTube videos in a floating window on top of other apps.
