  • How to turn on YouTube's reminders to stop watching videos

At Google IO 2018, the search giant had announced a Wellbeing initiative to help users understand their digital habits and curb device addiction. Today, the brand new version of the YouTube cellular program started rolling out, which included several features in keeping with this new motif.

With Google's new Android P OS come plenty of new features and changes.

Google had previously designed YouTube to be addictive, adding autoplay video, including a scrolling playlist of similar videos just so users would spend that extra minute on its video service. However, the time can be adjusted as per convenience by the user.

If you are an Android user and don't see this feature yet, make sure you are using the latest version of YouTube by updating it from the Play Store.

The feature is only available on the mobile app, but will likely spread to the web-app in the coming weeks. There you could see the new feature with Remind me to take a break. With the rollout, this update YouTube will allow the users to set reminders at a specific interval of time. 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". You can schedule it manually at any time between 15 minutes and 3 hours. Notably, the setting is optional and switched off by default. The Take a rest feature could be accessed by heading to options General, and also the notifications feature can be found at options Notifications. In the recent update from YouTube, a new feature has been rolled out which also emphasizes on Digital well-being.
