Google has started rolling out 'voice remote' support for YouTube TV

The feature will be added without a specific app update, but it is not now available to all users.

Suddenly, many YouTube TV users noticed their Android clients have been gifted with the option to control the app by voice. Depending on the application you're using it may be referred to by different names.


Search giant Google has started rolling out a new feature for users who use YouTube TV on their Android devices.

If, however, you've been hoping for a way to continue your oddball spirals down into the dark and rarely explored corners of YouTube, you'll be happy to know that its mobile app might soon get an Incognito mode.


Before Incognito mode was introduced for YouTube, users had the option to log out of their Google account from the YouTube app to allow private content viewing.

Android will also help users keep track of the amount of time that they spend on their smartphones. The new update has not yet rolled out yet in any build and was discovered by internally through a series of strings found in the app. But now it looks like YouTube will make a little easier to go into incognito without digging into many settings and without having to disable it later.


YouTube's video recommendations can result in an endless late night #YouTubeLoop, which is the bane of every student's existence during final exams and assignment deadlines.
