The next version of Android, known as Android P, will let users keep tabs on which apps they spend the most time in, number of times you've unlocked your device and more. Android Police has reported that YouTube's Incognito Mode, previously only available on Android through a maze of menus, will be made "a little easier to go into".

As the site points out, YouTube has given users the ability to mask their searches for quite some time by either going to Settings History & privacy and pausing search and watch history, or simply by logging out before searching for a video.

It's a common issue all YouTube users face: you can't resist the lure of a clickbait title, click on it out of interest, and suddenly your recommended video list is full of similar garbage.

Google has begun to roll out "voice remote" to YouTube TV users, according to Android Police.

Incognito mode is already available in Chrome, as well as Google's Gboard mobile keyboard. Speaking of which, it seems that the Switch Accounts and Sign Out items will be merged to make room for the toggle.

Incognito mode doesn't really offer a whole lot when it comes to hiding your activity from three lettered agencies and is kind of pointless on a non-shared device. Their Google account avatar will also be covered by an incognito icon.

Your activity from this session will be cleared and you'll return to the account last used when you exit Incognito or become inactive.

Well now, YouTube is testing the very same feature on its Android app.
