This allows users to control the app using voice commands.

YouTube's new feature isn't an isolated moment of wellbeing by Google. Users of the YouTube app can already access this feature on Android devices through the app's settings, where watch and search history can be paused.

Turning on the mode will be as easy as tapping your avatar on the top right hand corner of the screen and switching on the "Turn on Incognito" option. The company has extended private browsing option to Gboard in the middle of past year, and is apparently now testing it in the YouTube app for Android.

According to a recent Google Pixel Reddit thread, those playing videos in the YouTube app are able to tap their fingers on the scanner to bring up a media control overlay.

When going into this mode, a pop-up supposedly says, "Your activity from this session will be cleared and you'll return to the account last used when you exit Incognito or become inactive". It will be shown below Switch account / Sign out options which were until now two separate options. If you don't know, all popular Android apps are now getting this feature. There is also an Incognito mode to watch videos that you don't want to turn up on your videos watched history.

Currently, there are some Android apps that offer an Incognito Mode where you can use their functionality without being tracked and without your actions being logged into your usage history.

The Incognito mode was spotted by Android Police, who have written that a "turn on Incognito mode" option in the Account settings is available for people who have the feature. YouTube did not immediately respond to the launching date.
