YouTube is now expanding the management options for screen time on Android and iOS smartphones. Gradually, users can now set an individual reminder, for example when it is time to go to bed. The “Bedtime Reminder” or reminders for bedtime for YouTube is initially be released for users of the Android and iPhone apps, according to an announcement from YouTube.
However, the updation will take time to publish for everyone. The new function enlarges the possibility introduced some time ago to be reminded when seeing a video, to take a break from time to time, and to take your eyes from the phone. Since watching on YouTube also means that you can watch videos for hours instead of sleeping, for example, this is a practical solution to remind yourself that it is time to put the device away.
YouTube share about the Bedtime Reminder, “Let you set reminders at specific times to stop watching videos and (you guessed it!) Go to bed. You set start and end times in your settings, including whether or not you want the prompt to interrupt a video or wait until the video is over. You’ll also be able to dismiss or snooze the reminder. This feature is available on Android and iPhone devices and will roll out to all users in the next few days.”
