YouTube is testing an Incognito Mode in its Android app

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. As the name suggests, you can now control YouTube TV on your phone with only your voice (and a tap of a single button). With the latest update, users can stop Google from tracking their viewing history.

Some YouTube TV users have discovered a new voice remote feature in their app.

Some Android apps offer an Incognito Mode where you can use their functionality without being tracked and without your actions being logged into your usage history. Some people have said they are now able to toggle this mode on by tapping the account avatar icon in the top right of the application.

The feature sadly isn't turned on by default so you'll need to go into the settings yourself if you want to turn it on. That's because the YouTube app is reportedly testing an Incognito Mode that won't keep track of your watched videos, as spotted by Android Police.

When it arrives (it's likely a server-side change that won't require an app update), your viewing history from the current session won't be saved, and it seems that your subscriptions won't be tainted by your disgusting choices in entertainment.

It also lets you block channels you don't like, turn off the search function entirely and gives you an expedited reporting function for any videos that you feel aren't appropriate for kids.
