I'd like to be able to watch or listen to videos while using other apps. I can do this with Chrome, YouTube, VLC, Netflix, etc, but the Crunchyroll app closes the video and dumps the buffer anytime I focus on another app - this includes multiwindow view. Ultimately this dissuades me from using the app because I want to use my phone for other things and I can easily find other videos to stream on any of the services listed above. Is it possible this is just a setting I've missed?

I agree, picture-in-picture and multitasking support would be a great addition to the app.

Gonna necro this post since I don't see a point in making a new one.
It's ridiculous that such a popular company and streaming site puts so little effort into their application services. Give picture in picture support already, doing split screen drains the battery and is a pain in the ass to get working properly.

I am surprised there is no Picture in picture feature for Crunchyroll. I always found the app to be easy to use on iPad

Well, for non-japanese speakers, the inclusion of a Picture-in-Picture (PiP) mode in the Crunchyroll app would be of no use since this mode presently cannot display subtitles while most of Crunchyroll's content are in Japanese.

(Besides, it would be implausible to implement subtitles in the Picture-in-Picture feature as they will be too small to read unless the PiP window can be made resizable.)

For Android users who understand Japanese, the solution is viewing Crunchyroll's content through Chrome (or Firefox), which includes the PiP mode. (This doesn't work with Samsung Internet, at least for me.)

For non-japanese speaking users, the alternative is to open the Crunchyroll app in split-screen mode so they can watch shows with subtitles while using another app simultaneously. If they experience a buffering issue with Crunchyroll's app while in split-screen mode, they can go to Crunchyroll's website via Chrome (in split-screen mode also).

bump I love Crunchyroll but I also love being productive, adding picture in picture with subtitles supported would be great. I'm surprised that this feature hasn't been implemented yet.

The Windows 10 app doesn't have it either, which is confusing since the UWP devkit has plenty tools to implement this feature. Any word from the CR team about this? Anything we can do to voice our concerns?

Well Picture in Picture mode on iOS does have the ability to show subtitles
So implementing PiP for Crunchyroll shouldn’t be that complicated... I’d love to have PiP for Crunchyroll
The easiest way would be to just enable playback on the browser.
Edit: Just made my browser request desktop version of the webpage and now I can watch Crunchyroll without the app. PiP works.
So for all that don’t know how to request desktop version on iOS Safari, here’s a quick explanation:
On the left side of the URL box there’s two uppercase A letters, one is a little bit smaller. Tap on it. A menu should open with the option request desktop version.
That’s all
