YouTube's new feature lets you stop watching YouTube

YouTube wants you to “take a break” from watching videos with new update

YouTube is kicking off Google's plans to help users balance technology and life. It will analyze the usage of the phone, the number of times the phone has been unlocked and usage of Gmail as well as YouTube. An oblong slider will replace the old on-screen home icon that has been around for years. It also debuted a new app, Material Gallery. When the timer reaches the reminder that has been set, the video will be paused. That is great if you have work apps and personal apps setup separately. Google will be tinkering around with the gestures and release more in the coming months. Thanks for trying, Google, but ultimately people are going to do what they want, and there's not very much you can do about it.

These functions won't be the last ones from Google which have been created to aid users get less deflected because of technology. In Google IO 2018, the search giant had introduced a Wellbeing initiative to help users comprehend that their digital habits and curb device addiction. Tell us how you feel below because we would love to hear from you. App Timer will also nudge you if the app detects you're spending too much time on your phone. Below this, you can set time limits for all the apps on your phone - say, only five minutes of Twitter a day. Before, it would sometimes switch to the less commonly used Ring or Alarm volumes.

If an app uses a back button, you will see that as well, but only when the app uses it.
