YouTube adds a “Take a Break” notification


We’ve all been there – spending way too much time on YouTube, watching our favorite videos.

But this is actually a nice move from Google – they are aware that people spend way too much time on their phones watching YouTube – including me – while there are things to be done. I sometimes spend 2h straight on my phone watching YouTube videos.


It is because of this that YouTube will now have the option to remind you after you have spent a certain amount of time watching videos. To enable the reminds, simply go to the settings and turn them on. They are available in 15, 30, 60, 90, or 180 minutes intervals. I’ve set time to 60 minutes.

Of course, the option is disabled by default.
