Google I/O 2018 was one of the most sucessful Google I/O ever. One of the aspects which Google covered at the event was to help people get some time away from their smartphones. Google launched several new features to help you create a balance between life and technology.
Google named it as Wellbeing initiative, YouTube is also part of this initiative. In terms of YouTube, Google has launched a feature called “Take A Break”. With this take a break feature, users can schedule custom breaks to get away from YouTube and do something else.
In this YouTube will notify you that it is break time and you should stop watching youtube for a set period of time. To set this go to setting on your YouTube app on Android. Go to general settings and at the top, you will find an option called Remind me to take a break.
From here you can set a reminder to appear every 15 minutes, 30 minutes, 60 minutes, 90 minutes or 180 minutes. Once done Youtube will pause the video at every set interval. Then you can dismiss the reminder by either continuing to watch the video or closing the application.
This new update will be available via an update, so make sure you have the latest version installed. The feature is available with the YouTube Android App version 13.77.55. We can expect a similar feature on the iPhone too and YouTube should bring this to the Web too. Stay tuned to Sid Tech for more tech updates.
