Opening a webpage inside an app is about to get a little more pleasant — in some Android apps, at least. The Chrome M124 update adds the ability to open in-app webpages in picture-in-picture mode, letting you swap between the webpage and the app without closing your browsing session.

The feature is coming to the Android apps that use Chrome Custom Tabs, which let developers provide customized browsing experiences within their apps.
