Only weeks after adding another helpful feature to TweetDeck preview, Twitter is now letting users keep videos playing while they browse.
As Twitter keeps evolving TweetDeck, it has added a new feature that allows users to play videos from a TweetDeck column, pin them to any corner of the screen while watching, and continue to scroll through Tweets.
Playing videos will initially be pinned to the bottom of the window to enable scrolling past the post, but it is also possible to “undock” the clip to pin it elsewhere on the screen.
In addition, the feature allows the video to keep playing even when switching decks or removing the column that the clip initially came from.

The feature has been added to the latest update for TweetDeck, which Twitter re-launched back in July last year as an invitation-only preview mode for select users in the US, Canada, and Australia.
Those who wish to get access to preview can edit the HTML code to gain temporary and limited access to TweetDeck – and peek around to see its features.
In addition to introducing the new way of watching pinned videos while scrolling streams or changing columns, the update also includes the ability to create multiple columns and dashboards (“Decks”), an updated Tweet presentation showing a preview of what it looks like before going live, list discovery, DM management, and more.
It’s a better-looking, better functioning version of TweetDeck, and given it’s now been in testing for six months, it seems likely that it will soon become the default version of the platform, available to all users.
