The official app of the popular Vimeo video service has just moved up to version 5.6 with a recent update. And all iOS 9 users, especially those with an iPad, should definitely be pleased to see the new features.

First up, the app fully supports iOS 9 and all users can search for Vimeo videos directly from the enhanced Spotlight feature.


You can now watch a Vimeo video while using other apps in iOS 9 thanks to Picture in Picture support.

And Vimeo fans with an iPad can also take advantage of the Picture in Picture and Split View multitasking features. With Picture in Picture, simply press the Home button and the video screen will scale down to the corner of your display. You can easily open another app while watching.

With Split View, you can have Vimeo and another app open and active on your iPad screen simultaneously.

Split View is available on the iPad Air 2 and fourth-generation iPad mini while Picture in Picture can be accessed on the iPad Air, iPad Air 2, iPad mini 3, and iPad mini 4.

Viewing the app through Google’s Chromecast has also been improved.

The Vimeo app is universal and designed for the iPhone/iPod touch and iPad/iPad mini. It can be downloaded now on the App Store for free.
