YouTube will tell you when you're watching too much YouTube

YouTube will tell you when you're watching too much YouTube

Google's YouTube gets a new feature which now lets users tell to stop watching the videos on the platform.

Wind down mode - This mode enables you to set the time you wish to retire for the night that sets the do not disturb mode on at the specific time you chose which slowly turn the screen monochrome. Are the changes and new features coming to Android P something you are excited about? Today, the brand new version of the YouTube cellular program started rolling out, which included several features in keeping with this new motif.

YouTube also has a "time watched profile" in the line which is said to provide an insight to the users about their viewing habits. Below this, you can set time limits for all the apps on your phone - say, only five minutes of Twitter a day. Or, more seriously, if you've run out the clock on Twitter, and a major news event breaks on the social network? It will analyze the usage of the phone, the number of times the phone has been unlocked and usage of Gmail as well as YouTube. Tapping on it is going to give users choices ranging from "Never" to "Every 180 moments". Just keep in mind, both were created to expand where and how you interact with apps. Once you've expended your allotment, you won't be able to open that app for the rest of the day, and its icon will be grayed out on the home screen or app drawer. After the video reaches the reminder that has been set the video will pause in the background and the viewer will be provided with the option to either dismiss the notification and resume the video, or go along with YouTube's advise to "take a break, there is more to life".

The Take a Break Settings is optional in the updated YouTube app and it is set off by default.

In addition, there are just two added features inside the new YouTube notifications menu. Until we hear more about Wear OS this fall, however, it's hard to tell what digital wellbeing for your wrist might look like. As always, Google is releasing incremental Play Store updates every week with enhanced system stability, and it gets more refined with every update.

Amid concerns about addiction to social media, Google is launching a suite of tools created to give control back to Android users so they can spend quality time away from their devices.
