How to Check How Much Time You’ve Spent on YouTube

If you rely on YouTube for regular media consumption, then you might know how addictive the platform is. I often lose myself in the endless sea of entertainment where every ounce of water is a new YouTube video. YouTube could be a great platform to find valuable videos, but we often end up wasting our time.

One of the useful features of the YouTube mobile app reveals how much time you have spent watching videos. As a part of a Digital Wellbeing, YouTube introduced a new feature that tells how many minutes or hours you’ve spend viewing YouTube videos today, yesterday, and the past week, along with a daily average.

This is indeed a useful feature because it will allow you to make informed decisions about how you want YouTube to best fit into your life. As of now, the feature is available to everyone, but it’s kept hidden under the Settings.
