Picture in Picture Baby Monitor: What Is PiP Mode on a Baby Monitor

What is pip mode on a baby monitor?

“Pip mode” on a baby monitor means Picture-in-Picture mode. With this mode, you can look after your baby while doing other stuff on your phone’s screen. 

It’s a handy feature that lets you multitask without losing sight of your baby.

How Do I Use Picture in Picture Baby Monitor?

With our PiP feature, when you minimize the Annie Baby Monitor app, a small pop-up window will open up on the bottom right. This will enable you to open different apps on your phone while still being able to monitor your baby.

  1. Start monitoring: Start off by tapping on “Parent Unit” on your phone. By tapping on the “Camera” icon, you can start video monitoring.
  2. Turn on the Picture in Picture: Tap on the PiP icon to start monitoring in the new window.
  3. Navigate the PiP feature: If you single-tap on the PiP video, you’ll see a cross in the top left corner and a PiP icon in the top right corner. To close the PiP video, tap on the cross. To go back to the full-screen video view, tap the PiP icon.
  4. Place the PiP anywhere: Long-hold the PiP and move it anywhere on the screen.
