New Firefox v63 is now available for the Android platform with lots of new features and improvements. The most important integration is the Picture-in-Picture mode and notification channels. We already know what PiP mode is capable of doing. If you’are watching a video in full screen, then on pressing the home button or opening any other App, the video screen will resize to a smaller screen. It will shrink to a corner of the display. You can even move the screen to any side or corner of the display.
With notification channel, Android devices browser will now have options for downloads, media playback, location messages, synced tabs, and push notifications. We expect more channels will add up in the coming days.
However, the features with Firefox v63 are only supported on devices running Android Oreov8.0or up. We know that picture-in-picture mode is the feature which marked its entry with the Oreo OS.
Apart from PiP and notification channels, Firefox v63 also adds support for English from Canada and Ligurian. As Firefox now support recognizes the operating system accessibility setting for reducing animation. It adds support for Web Components custom elements and shadow DOM. The Firefox App now targets Oreo with security and performance improvements and brings support for new features.
