The new feature joins others geared toward digital health. Those include notifications when you’ve reached a self-imposed time limit, a single daily notification rather than multiple and the ability to disable notification sounds and vibrations overnight. Other companies including Facebook and Apple have introduced similar screen time-management features recently as well.
To find your YouTube screen time stats, head to your YouTube account and tap “Time watched.” Google says the profile won’t include videos that you’ve removed from your watch history or those you’ve watched in incognito mode. And a support page about the feature notes YouTube TV is included in those watch times while the profile feature itself says YouTube Music isn’t included.
