YouTube is one of the most famous videos streaming sites and is the second most trafficked website in the world. Now Google is rolling out a feature for both iOS and Android that will track the amount of time you spend while watching videos on the YouTube.

While announcing this news, YouTube said in a statement that:

 “Our goal is to provide a better understanding of time spent on YouTube, so you can make informed decisions about how you want YouTube to best fit into your life.”

How to Check the time You have Spent on YouTube:

When YouTube will launch this feature, you will be able to check the spent by following these steps:

  • go to your account menu
  • Click on the “time watched.”

Upon clicking it, you will be able to see the number of minutes or hour you have spent while watching YouTube videos for the same day, yesterday or past weeks.

If you want that YouTube should track the time you spent on the app, just disable YouTube watch history. If the videos are deleted from YouTube or you have watched videos in incognito mode, the time statistics will not be tracked.

Facebook and Instagram have already rolled out time management features to help users follow their social media usage on those sites.
