Now that Spotify is investing more in video, I think it's important to allow for flexibility in how users watch videos on their devices.
By allowing for Picture-in-Picture (PiP), users would be able to play Spotify videos in the background, which is not only a major enhancement to the current experience, but is also more consistent with how audio works in Spotify.
On iOS and Mac, more and more apps are adopting the native PiP functionality, including Safari, YouTube, Twitch, etc. I think it would be good for Spotify to do the same.
