Youtube - Take A Break Feature
5 billion videos watched per day on Youtube.
It's a good thing that now anyone can get knowledge or spend free time by watching videoes but the addiction to mobile phone and these type of activities are not good.
Youtube released one good feature to help users not to be addicted. It's "Remind me to take a break" feature.
Why this is a good feature?
Youtube is doing business but still, they thought about user's health. This is an important thing for every product. Products are made for business but the aim should be to help the people to grow.
And for this reason, I loved this feature and my experience with this feature is also good.
Why it is good UX?
A good feature will always give a good experience is not necessary but Youtube gave a good experience for this feature and here is the reason,
1 - It took only 20 seconds to turn on the feature
2 - Only 4 steps required to turn on this with easily understandable content
3 - With this feature, It also showed a total time spent on Youtube in previous days.
4 - It stopped playing video exactly the time set by me.
5 - It paused video with showed a good image, time spent, and setting adjustment
1 - For any product, our aim should be to help the users and solve their's problems.
2 - To design any feature, User's time is important and it should not take more time to understand and use any feature.
3 - A feature should work perfectly in any condition
4 - Simple UI, understandable content and easily change the setting can give the good user experience.
By showing how much time user is spending on Youtube is a good thing and also we all know which kind of videos we are showing regularly.
But, With this time if a user can show a data of what kind of videos he/she is showing and with this data user can get an idea of "In which direction he/she is going"
For example, If I am spending my 60% time just watching funny videos then it's not good for me and I should divert my mind. or we can say, in past week I watched 60% funny videos.
By this data, a user can get a good knowledge about themselves and can use Youtube for their growth.
