YouTube 'Take a Break' Feature Rolling Out on Android Devices

13 May 2018, 01:44 | Justin Tyler

Google at its recently concluded I/O 2018 annual developer conference announced some new features for its products like Gmail, Assistant, Maps and more. The firm made several announcements about Android P that were aimed at getting users to - believe it or not - use their phones even less than our phone-addicted generation already does. There Google has revealed that how the all-new Android P focuses on the term "Digital well-being".

After the update is downloaded, YouTube users can go into the app's settings, and then the "General" menu selection.

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. There on, you can choose different ways to monitor your activity and work on your "Digital Well Being". So whenever yo want to set a reminder to stop watching the YouTube's videos, you can go to the Settings option and can set the reminder as per your requirements. If users chose to try this feature, they can continue to watch videos, but will get reminders to take some time off. Users are free to ignore this reminder and keep watching.

The Take a Break and other notification features are available in the latest version (13.17.55) of the YouTube app. The idea here is that the app won't try to grab your attention, and the user will be able to avoid getting distracted from constant notifications.

The YouTube Take a rest feature can be found about the mobile app Putting display. Numerous users are still awaiting for this update on their phones, however many of them have got the updated YouTube and they can see the new Controls in the Settings menu. The other new option lets users get all of their notification once a day, again at a specific time.
