Google to launch 'Take a Break' feature for YouTubers

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

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.

YouTube has got a new feature named "Remind me to take a break" that can remind the user that they should take a break from their binge-watching regime and give them a cue that there is a world outside.

To activate YouTube Take a break notification, first tap your profile picture in the top-right corner. YouTube has added a reminders option that reminds you to stop watching videos.

'Walmart can infuse $3 bn in Flipkart'
The bargain today awaits clearance out of India's anti trust regulator and is predicted to close later this year. In case, SoftBank decides not to sell, Walmart would be left with about 55 per cent of Flipkart .

Once you hit the limit, YouTube will kindly remind you that you need to take a break and focus on your daily tasks.

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. If users chose to try out this feature, they can continue to watch movies, but will get reminders to take some time off. Consumers are free to ignore this reminder and keep watching. The devs at Google could just do a server-side toggle to enable a new feature once it for everyone at the same time.

The latest Google Play Store update is out, and now this time, it is in its 10th iteration, carrying the version number as v10.0.7. If you want to choose the delivery time for the digests in the settings, then head to Settings Notifications Scheduled Digest. It's actually a simple reminder, which you can customize, telling you that you should take a break from watching videos on the platform. The company is working on Android Dashboard, which will show users how long they spend on their phone, which apps they use the maximum, and more. It will reach to your region very soon.
