Google Chrome’s Canary version supports dragging and dropping playback controls anywhere on the screen

Like the Picture-in-Picture window feature, Chrome Canary now allows users to control the user interface by dragging the global media from the toolbar, placing it anywhere on the screen. This feature, also known as Media Hub, is derived from GMC and is used to help users control video or audio played in a browser. After upgrading to a specified version of Chrome, users need not right-click to turn out the menu on the video when they control where the video plays, as the GMC provides piP options directly in the user interface.

Google today added a new Flag setting option to chrome The Canary 86 browser, which allows “controls to drag out of the global media control dialog box” when turned on.

4. Select Enabled from the drop-down menu and restart the browser.

You can then go to a video site such as YouTube and play any video. Click the picture-in-picture icon on the toolbar, place the mouse cursor over the control, and drag it anywhere on the screen.

When you start playing another video, the GMC’s controls will automatically disappear and the picture-in-picture icon will appear again on the toolbar.
