YouTube, is the most popular and widely used video-sharing website and is also available on multiple platforms such as Android, iOS, Windows, etc. But, as we have mentioned the new feature called “Dark Mode” of the YouTube app on Android in our previous post.

Use the Take a Break feature on YouTube

Along with these features, YouTube has also rolled out a new feature called “Time Watched.” In my opinion, this feature is quite helpful for us to determine how much time we have spent on watching videos on YouTube. So, if you are one of them, or like me who spend over-n-over time watching videos on YouTube. Then, this feature will be very helpful to you. The new YouTube app also comes with a feature called “Take a Break,” and allows you to set a reminder so that you can take a little break from watching videos on YouTube.
