The YouTube app will soon have an incognito mode

Tuesday, 15 May, 2018

This feature is said to be accessible via a floating action button on the screen. Well now, YouTube is testing the very same feature on its Android app.

This isn't being billed as a major update for the app, instead it's quietly being added to some users' devices; a dedicated support page is now live too, so if you've not received the update yet, that's a solid sign that it'll be on its way soon.

The most impressive of these is a feature called Dashboard that lets you see how you're using your apps and for how long.

Google Assistant's New Voices Are Now Live
The on-stage demo was nothing short of incredible, but we'll have to wait and see how well it works in real-world testing. What's so clever about it? We tried this in Spanish (US), it turns out this language doesnt work with Google Assistant .


Spanish GP: Lewis Hamilton wins to increase F1 title lead
Raikkonen reported some auto problems on Lap 25 and found himself limping back to the pits to retire from the race on Lap 27. Mexican Sergio Perez was ninth for Force India and Monegasque rookie Charles Leclerc took the final point for Sauber.


The feature is slowly rolling out to users of the service's app. It is also important to note that this feature will only be made available to those who pay a $40 YouTube TV streaming subscription. It is unclear as to how it is activated, but there is a good chance it is enabled server-side so if you don't see it yet, it's because you weren't selected to be part of the test. Google has been made aware of this and is now testing a new placement for the feature. You can even tell YouTube TV to Cast, record a show, watch a specific sports league, or find content based on actors' names, if they are kid-friendly, etc. If not, head into Settings and look for the Voice Remote option to toggle it on.

After entering this mode, the app doesn't track any video plays for future personalization - meaning YouTube won't keep suggesting embarrassing 80s music videos to you if you suddenly decide to go on a David Hasselhoff binge.
