YouTube adds “bedtime” setting

YouTube has developed a new setting that tells you to stop watching videos when it’s past your bedtime.

The move is part of YouTube’s effort to promote ‘digital wellness’.

Users can now set a bedtime reminder to avoid disrupting your sleep by watching later than you should.

You can pick start and end times in the settings menu and decide if you want your bedtime reminder to pop up during a video, or until after it’s finished.

This new feature is one of many that have been added to YouTube in the last few years. You can now see the amount of time you spend watching videos per week and schedule reminders to take a break from the screen.

Once you switch the setting to the ‘on’ position, you’ll be asked to select the time when you have to go to bed.

The bedtime reminder is currently available on the YouTube app on Apple and Android phones and tablets.
