Depending on the application you're using it may be referred to by different names. You can of course dive inside YouTube's settings menu and disable viewing (or search) history, but it's not instantly accessible, and might discourage some users from trying. As reported by Android Police, some YouTube TV users have noticed that their Android Clients have received an option which enables them to control the app via their voice. And now it looks like YouTube might be the next app to add to its arsenal of privacy features with a full-fledged incognito mode, according to a report from Android Police. But the new Incognito Mode should be easier to access by just tapping your account picture in the top right corner, where a "Turn on Incognito" toggle will be available.

When Incognito Mode is switched on, all your activity from the current session won't be saved and all subscriptions will be hidden It's the equivalent of being signed out of the app without actually signing out.

If you're listening, Google, we'd like that incognito setting right away, please; feel free to put dark mode on hold if that helps.

Conte reveals key man in contention to return vs Newcastle
Canvass opinion around St James' Park about Newcastle's best performer this season, and Shelvey's name will be a common reply. They've also scored just once in those four defeats - a goal by Ayoze Perez in a 2-1 loss at Watford.

Incognito mode is already available in Chrome, as well as Google's Gboard mobile keyboard.

To use the feature, you simply have to select the floating microphone icon when you see it in the YouTube app and say a command. Once you toggle back or close out of YouTube completely, you'll end up back on your original account. We'll keep an eye out for it landing on more devices.
