Google and YouTube have an interest for your “Virtual Wellbeing,” in line with bulletins made all through the Keynote at this 12 months’s I/O. To that finish, YouTube is enforcing two new options: Notification digest and spoil reminders. Between the 2, you must have the ability to reduce down on notification unsolicited mail and higher observe the time you spend gazing movies.
The spoil reminders popped up in our fresh APK Teardown for YouTube v13.16, they usually must assist binge-watchers higher keep watch over their video intake conduct. The brand new notifications digest is in a position to trim down your whole more than a few notifications from the day into one, saving treasured house in that notification tray, and saving you time if you happen to’d moderately assessment them unexpectedly.
Either one of those new options will probably be coming to YouTube this week.
These features are starting to go live in YouTube now. I can see both the scheduled digest and option to disable sounds and vibrations, while out tipster (thanks, Johny Hongkong!) can see break reminders.
To find them, go to YouTube’s settings and look for General > Remind me to take a break. You can set it to never, or every 15, 30, 60, 90, and 180 minutes.
For the other two, you need to go to YouTube’s settings then Notifications and look for both Scheduled digest at the top and Disable sounds & vibrations at the bottom. The first one lets you set an hour of the day to get a bundle of all your YouTube notifications at once, and the latter lets you disable all sounds and vibrations coming from YouTube between two times every day.
