Google’s Digital Wellbeing initiative is all coming together.
During its I/O conference in May, Google spent a good chunk of time talking about its Digital Wellbeing efforts. Many of those tools are now available in Android P and the YouTube app already recommends taking a break now and then and gives you tools to help limit the number of notifications you receive.
Now, as part of an update that’s rolling out to the YouTube app, users can see exactly how much time they’ve spent watching videos.
You’ll be able to access these stats in your account menu, and from here, you can see your time watched for today, yesterday, and the past seven days. Right below that are toggles for getting reminders to take a break, whether or not you want videos to autoplay once your current one is finished, and more.
Have you started using YouTube’s digital wellbeing tools? Do you notice a difference in the way you watch videos with them?
