YouTube incognito mode may hide your weird browsing history

Since last October you've been able to send commands via your vocal chords to the YouTube TV service through Google Home speakers, but if you don't have access to a Google Assistant device you'll now be able to get chatty with the streaming service through its mobile app. 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. Android Police has reported that YouTube's Incognito Mode, previously only available on Android through a maze of menus, will be made "a little easier to go into".

The most impressive of these is a feature called Dashboard that lets you see how you're using your apps and for how long.

Incognito Mode will show up when you tap your account avatar in the top right of the app. There are several different commands available, so if you've already gotten the voice remote or you just want to be prepared for when it does arrive, you can find a list of available voice commands right here. For instance, Chrome and Gboard have been calling this Incognito Mode, but Firefox calls it Private Browsing mode.

When the incognito mode is enabled, YouTube users will receive a notification explains their activity rom the session will be cleared. If you turn off Incognito or become inactive on YouTube, you'll be back to using your own account.
