YouTube Reminds To Take A Break With Google’s New Digital Well-Being Feature

It's break time for Youtubers.

Google is on a new mission and all that the giant is doing is just for the sake of users digital wellbeing. Does that sound something innovative to you? Whether you have heard of something like this before or not, Google is going to make it pretty much a reality with the feature termed as “take a break.” Don’t take it as an order from the giant as it is very much concerned with balancing the technology and the users’ life. Now, that’s a great deal and of course one of the reasons why my love for Google is blooming day by day. 

The changes are scheduled to come with the enroll of Android P, the latest Android version that is all set to revamp users’ experience. It will bring a new dashboard designed for users to keep an eye on the amount they spend online. On the dashboard, there will be breakdowns, an array of notifications, and all the details regarding the time users are spending on a particular application. Google’s concern on users’ digital wellbeing was a concern for the giant in I/O 2018.

Amidst all these happenings, YouTube seems to get impressed with the idea and is not waiting for Google to introduce Android P to let users experience the facilities. Just as Sundar Pichai promised, YouTube is all set to take Google’s charge of balancing the tech and users’ life. So, with YouTube’s “take a break” initiative, the users will be reminded when they exceed a considerable video-viewing limit that is normal than prescribed. To access the features, the steps go as:

  • Tapping your user photo at the top right of the mobile app
  • Going to Settings 
  • Choose General, and then tapping 
  • “Remind me to take a break” 

The choices include:

  • Never
  • Every 15 minutes
  • Every 30 minutes
  • Every 60 minutes
  • Every 90 minutes
  • Every 180 minutes

These gentle reminders won’t stop you from watching anything as it is pretty much on your on own to set the timings. It is always up to you to abide by these notifications or choose to ignore them. However, taking a break from long hours of video-viewing is never going to harm you. It is only an added benefit to balance your life and the tech.
