'Take a Break' Feature For YouTubers to Help deal with Addiction

Google has rolled out a new set of controls that will allow YouTube users to set limits on their video viewing, and help them set "Take a Break" reminder from browsing the channels for too long, a media report said.

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 decided to.

Users can then choose to dismiss the reminder and keep watching, or close the app, the TechCrunch reported late Friday. The changes announced during Google's I/O keynote will roll out in the latest update of YouTube, along with YouTube's ability to send notifications. The reminders will come with an option of being dismissed and the feature will also allow users to disable notification sounds during a specified time period each day.

The new features are first expected to hit the 13.17 and higher versions of the YouTube mobile app on both iOS and Android, the report said.

Google and YouTube are under the same canopy, so naturally, YouTube’s services and features are designed and optimized for Google products like its Chrome browser. So it’s not surprising that YouTube TV supported only Chrome for quite a long time ever since its launch. It makes sense.

But now we have some good news for non-Chrome users. It looks like Google is slowly loosening its grip on YouTube TV’s browser requirements and learning to play with others. According to YouTube TV’s support page, Mozilla’s Firefox browser has been added to the list of compatible browsers. The support page doesn’t tell us which versions are supported though, but we can guess that it is the latest one so users should probably upgrade to be safe.

This brings the total number of support browsers up to a whopping two: Chrome and Firefox. It’s a start. The support page also mentions that support for more browsers is expected to come n the future, so if you’re using Opera, Microsoft Edge, Safari, or others, support may be coming soon.

For those using Firefox, you can head over to YouTube TV and try it out if you haven’t done so already. It’s nice that support is now opening up more today.
