YouTube adds a feature that reminds you to stop watching YouTube

Like we already said, this feature is now only rolling out to Android users, but it should be rolled out for iOS users soon. Video streaming platform YouTube is also a part of the initiative, under which users will be able to schedule custom breaks to step away from their online lives for a while. Whether I'm catching up on Good Mythical Morning with my cereal before work or taking a break to see what's going on with 368, I often find myself glued to my phone going through everything new in my subscription feed. YouTube will then advise the viewer to take a break.

The new features are first expected to hit the 13.17 and higher versions of the YouTube mobile app on both iOS and Android, the report said.

Also, the "Take a break" feature will allow a user to set a reminder at an interval of 15 min, 30 min, 60 min, 90 min and 180 minutes. It's actually a simple reminder, which you can customize, telling you that you should take a break from watching videos on the platform. It groups all the notifications you receive from YouTube's app and serves them in one go at a specific time of the day of your liking. However, the time can be adjusted as per convenience by the user. The Notification digest combines YouTube notifications from different channels into one single unit.

F-33 Stealth fighter jets fired warning flares after Russian Su-25 jets entered an agreed deconfliction area in Syrian airspace. The Russian Sukhoi Su-27 jet came within 20 feet of the American P-8 in global airspace.

The fact that this feature isn't turned on by default diminishes it somewhat, on the other hand, people who need t be told to stop watching YouTube aren't the type of people who'll listen to such warnings so your mileage may vary on how you find this change.

Finally, the app will soon start displaying a "time watched profile" that will appear in your account menu, letting you know your daily average watch-time, and how long you have been watching today, yesterday, and over the past week.
