YouTube is working on an incognito mode for its Android app

You can of course dive inside YouTube's settings menu and disable viewing (or search) history, but it's not instantly accessible, and might discourage some users from trying.

Simply tap on Remind me to take a break and you'll be given the choice of how often you want to be reminded.

Incognito mode doesn't really offer a whole lot when it comes to hiding your activity from three lettered agencies and is kind of pointless on a non-shared device.

Since last October you've been able to send commands via your vocal chords to the YouTube TV service through Google Home speakers, but if you don't have access to a Google Assistant device you'll now be able to get chatty with the streaming service through its mobile app.

Google is surprising some YouTube TV subscribers with a new feature to start the week. The high privacy mode also turns off all subscriptions temporarily, and videos from subscribed channels do not get priority over other content on the app. Last week the company unveiled a whole raft of new features coming to its operating system Android that are created to help us use our smartphones less.

This allows users to control the app using voice commands. Although this has already been seen a few months ago, it was only as a support page that didn't divulge many details.

The next feature is called App Timer and lets you set actual time limits on how long you can use apps per day.

Finally there's Wind Down.
