It's a common issue all YouTube users face: you can't resist the lure of a clickbait title, click on it out of interest, and suddenly your recommended video list is full of similar garbage.

The YouTube TV "Voice Remote" feature allows users to talk to the app to perform certain actions on their Android devices without the need to touch the display. Android Police has reported that YouTube's Incognito Mode, previously only available on Android through a maze of menus, will be made "a little easier to go into". It is unclear as to how it is activated, but there is a good chance it is enabled server-side so if you don't see it yet, it's because you weren't selected to be part of the test. This would mean that as of the moment, not everyone can enjoy the feature since it is not available on the Google Play Store just yet.

It's worth noting that YouTube's mobile apps already let you pause your watch history and search history by finding those toggles in the settings menu, but we could certainly use a quicker way to indulging our freaky side.

He told Helwani that his return "does not hinge on Tito's participation". "I never stopped missing it". Liddell lifetime, fought in 2017, besting Chael Sonnen via submission for his first win in three years.

The next feature is called App Timer and lets you set actual time limits on how long you can use apps per day. Google has been made aware of this and is now testing a new placement for the feature.

However, it is more likely that the public rollout will be happening soon since Google is already starting with the limited release.

This is a pretty nifty feature for YouTube TV, giving users a quick way to navigate the service.
