YouTube has got a new feature named "Remind me to take a break" that can remind the user that they should take a break from their binge-watching regime and give them a cue that there is a world outside. A user will now be able to disable the sound and vibration alerts in YouTube's notification for a specific time interval that has been set for each day. YouTube will also let the users to let change their behaviour of exploring the YouTube's contents.

You can set break reminders in the YouTube app by visiting Settings. If you have the notifications of the update, you will receive a notification regarding the new YouTube update on your phone as well. If you want to choose the delivery time for the digests in the settings, then head to Settings Notifications Scheduled Digest. Whether I'm catching up on Good Mythical Morning with my cereal before work or taking a break to see what's going on with 368, I often find myself glued to my phone going through everything new in my subscription feed. Users can set a reminder to appear every 15, 30, 60, 90, or 180 minutes. When you see the reminder with take a break, you can close down the app right away or can dismiss the notification and start watching the video.
