YouTube adds bedtime reminders for Android and iOS
YouTube (Youtube), owned by Google, announced a new ‘Bed Time Reminder’ feature. Its purpose is to send alerts to the users of YouTube till late night so that they can sleep on time without spending much time on the screen. It is included in YouTube as part of the Digital Well Being initiative, which is a great feature to remind users at bedtime. This will help users to cut down on their screen time.
YouTube said, you can set specific times to stop watching videos and (you guessed it!) When to go to bed.
The company said in a statement, you can set the start and end time in your settings, in which you can pause the video if you want or wait until the video ends. You will also be able to dismiss or snooze the reminder.
That is, with the help of this feature, users can set reminders according to their needs. Also, after setting the reminder, when the reminder alarm rings while watching the video, you can continue watching the video by skipping it.
The new feature by YouTube is available for both Android and iOS users and will soon be rolled out gradually to all other users as well. The app will have a take break feature, which allows users to set reminders to relax or take a break from watching videos. These reminders can be set every 15, 30, 60, 90 or 180 minutes.
