Mobile: It’s way too easy to lose track of time on YouTube, but a option feature can help by reminding you to take a break.

Make sure you have the latest version of the YouTube app then head to Settings > General. You should see the “Remind me to take a break” option as in the screenshot above. You can choose intervals between 15 and 180 minutes.

This is entirely optional, and somewhat buried, but it works. It’s not going to stop you from watching Lets Plays on your phone all night instead of sleeping, sure, but it will prompt you to stop once and a while.
