Auto Picture-in-Picture

Video in installed Progressive Web Apps (PWAs) will enter and exit picture-in-picture automatically when a document's visibility changes. Web apps for video meetings will benefit by allowing picture-in-picture when users switch back and forth between web apps and other applications or tabs. This is currently not possible because a user gesture is required to enter picture-in-picture.
