    why is it that I cannot do picture in picture with any apps such as pandora or another input such as my computer? Is it even possible or could I possibly get an app or update that can fix that? any help is appreciated

    You can only have TV (HDMI input) displayed as picture in picture.
    When any app is active, the only way to turn on TV in PIP mode is to press TV button followed by PIP button.
    Unfortunately some apps do not allow watching TV simultaneously.

    You would imagine there would be a way to swap, and float an app on top of the TV imagine. The TV is already doing image overlay when displaying channel information, but it appears to have been left out of this round of the innovation. I know personally it would be great to be able to float IM+ windows over the full screen TV image.

    There's actually a big difference in processing resources to "float an app" rather than text overlays. However, you're right it has not been addressed in this version. One can only hope it will be, in the future.

    I am hoping google will start thinking on this feature.

    Having 2 diff applications in PIP might make it slower depending on how much resources they are using. Now that Armada has better CPU power google can enable PIP to multiple applications.
