YouTube new update has started to roll out which includes new setting of pausing your watch history. Which means if you watch any videos will not be included in your history. This is update is to secure your privacy and let any one know what you were watch moreover giving you the ridiculous suggestion on “What to Watch”. The setting includes 4 different options,
- Clear Watch History
- Clear Search History
- Pause Watch History
- Pause Search History
It’s a very simple yet very useful feature for the YouTube app, it is like a incognito mode for YouTube. Although the same features are available for the desktop version where you can do the same. To enable it in your device you have to go to Menu in your YouTube app >> Settings >> Privacy. The setting is sync all over your account so enabling it in one of your device will enable it all of your device if you have logged in with the same account even in your computer.
You can download the update rather waiting for the official roll out in your device. The apk is signed in by Google and will update your existing app.
