In the past 12 months, due to the impact of the epidemic, when we work at home and communicate with friends, video conferencing has been dominant. Google is seeking to improve video conferencing in the Chrome browser and upgrade its picture-in-picture window capabilities to support common video call operations, such as switching signals and ending calls.

This improvement is still in the proposal stage and has not yet been implemented in any version of the Chrome browser.
