Earlier this year, Sling TV launched an all-new App with updated UI. While there have been mixed reviews with some of the changes, Sling TV has been listening and improving the app over the last few months.
After re-adding their “Mini Guide” to the new interface, they have now added the ability to see a live picture-in-picture, while you browse a full-screen Grid Guide. Sling tells us that it is in the process of rolling out to users on Android TV, Amazon Fire TV and Roku streaming players.
When you hit the back button to return to the Grid Guide, you will now see a small picture-in-picture window in the bottom right corner. When you hit the Play/Pause button, you will return to the full-screen video.
In June, we got an early look of what will ultimately be a redesigned Sling TV app across all major platforms, which focuses on simpler navigation, better personalization, an improved grid guide, and easier access to your content. Following the launch on Fire TV, Roku, and Android, it will soon come to Apple.
