The picture-in-picture policy controls whether the current document is allowed to use Picture In Picture. If disallowed in a document, then calls to requestPictureInPicture() MUST throw a SecurityError and pictureInPictureEnabled MUST return false.

How to apply this policy

Send the following HTTP header to control the picture-in-picture policy, and disallow it on all origins:

Feature-Policy: picture-in-picture 'none'

Does it work?
