  1. As of February 2021, picture in picture does NOT work on Android 10 (or any version of Android). If you care about getting it added, contact Hulu directly so that they may reconsider.

  2. This did not work. Pip is enabled for my Hulu app, but it doesn’t go to pip when minamised. It closes the app and stood playing the video.
