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

13 May, 2018, 06:59 | Author: Enrique Watson

I try to be as conscious as possible of my smartphone usage, and while I like to think I've got a good "digital wellbeing" as Google puts it, a helping hand here and there is always appreciated. During the Google I/O 2018 conference, the company has introduced a number of controls for the YouTube platform which now lets the user take full control of exploring the platform.

YouTube is kicking off Google's aims that will greatly help customers balance technology and life. Until we hear more about Wear OS this fall, however, it's hard to tell what digital wellbeing for your wrist might look like. Do Not Disturb is also going to be better and bigger in Android P. Also, the dashboard only counts your time spent on a particular app if it's something running on your main screen. Google will be tinkering around with the gestures and release more in the coming months.

"Based on our research, we know that people feel tethered to their devices", Pichai said. In addition, Google will make available the ability to disable sound notifications from YouTube when people, for example, is asleep, in order not to distract. If you have the notifications of the update, you will receive a notification regarding the new YouTube update on your phone as well. Once the time is up, the app icon will end up graying out on you. You will not see any notifications on the lock screen or within the notification drawer. If you really need in the app, you can.

The Actions and Slices app features may be hard to grasp at the moment because there aren't many examples to point to. When you see the reminder with take a break, you can close down the app right away or can dismiss the notification and start watching the video. It's a page that displays how much time you spend on your phone, with a wheel diagram showing you exactly how long you used specific apps like YouTube, Netflix, Instagram and Facebook. These will appear in the Android P search bar, Play Store, within Google Assistant, or on your home screen. The time limits range from just a few minutes to hours.

The have a rest as well as other telling features can be found in the latest variant (13.17.55) of the YouTube app. That is great if you have work apps and personal apps setup separately.

If an app uses a back button, you will see that as well, but only when the app uses it.
