The YouTube app will soon have an incognito mode

The YouTube app will soon have an incognito mode

Well now, YouTube is testing the very same feature on its Android app.

This feature is particularly interesting because a voice remote support page popped up several months ago.

We're approaching a time when there will be no digital service without some form of voice control associated with it, and now Google is turning its attention to YouTube TV. The feature is available across most popular browsers, including Firefox, Google Chrome, and Opera.

It's worth noting that YouTube's mobile apps already let you pause your watch history and search history by finding those toggles in the settings menu, but we could certainly use a quicker way to indulging our weird side.


YouTube's Android app may be getting an incognito mode, as spotted by Android blog, Android Police. According to Android Police (AP), the company is now testing an Incognito mode for the YouTube Android app.

Among other things, the "Voice Remote" feature can be used to adjust volume, play certain shows, rewind, fast forward, play or pause videos, and switch channels.

The "voice remote" functionality will allow you to control YouTube TV through voice commands. This attempt by Google is part of its new policy to ensure that its users are able to maintain a good balance between technology and a healthy lifestyle. This leaves an empty spot where some people are seeing the new Turn on/off Incognito option placed.
