RIP Old YouTube.

YouTube rolls out new tools to help you stop watching

Google’s YouTube is the first streaming app that will actually tell users to stop watching. At its Google I/O conference this week, the company introduced a series of new controls for YouTube that will allow users to set limits on their viewing, and then receive reminders telling them to “take a break.” The feature is rolling out now in the latest version of YouTube’s app, along with others that limit YouTube’s ability to send notifications, and soon, one that gives users an overview of their binge behavior so they can make better-informed decisions about their viewing habits.

With “Take a Break,” available from YouTube’s mobile app Settings screen, users can set a reminder to appear every 15, 30, 60, 90 or 180 minutes, at which point the video will pause. You can then choose to dismiss the reminder and keep watching, or close the app.

So stupid.

It always bugged me when Netflix would do that shit. They finally stopped interrupting my binge watching with "continue watching?"

Damn it, Youtube & Netflix, if I want to binge watch Jessica Jones for 12 straight hours, ... it's my vegetative state, and you are not going to interrupt it. :D
