How To Turn On "Remind Me To Take A Break" On YouTube?

After the update is downloaded, YouTube users can go into the app's settings, and then the "General" menu selection. Along with the company's effort to create a safer platform for the users, YouTube is also adding tools that will remind users to take breaks from the service. However, the time can be adjusted as per convenience by the user.

Once you over limit the use of Youtube, you will receive a notification as a warning which will ask you to take a break.

The new feature will enable the users to set a reminder for every 15, 30, 60, 90 or 180 minutes, at which point the video will pause and users will receive "Take a Break" notification that they have been binge-watching videos for longer than they made a decision to. The app is available on Android, iOS and the web, and anyone is able to use it, all you need is a Google account to sign in. This won't close the app or pause the video, though, and it's up to you whether or not you will continue procrastinating. How many times can you learn how Burger Chef failed, or watch Chris Chambliss' 1976 pennant winning homer for the Yankees, or even replay Ray Allen's miracle 3-pointer that helped LeBron win his second title with the Heat. Tapping on it is going to give users choices ranging from "Never" to "Every 180 moments". The Notification digest combines YouTube notifications from different channels into one single unit.
