YouTube is testing an Incognito Mode in its Android app

Share

Now, users are discovering what appears to be fingerprint gestures in the YouTube app on devices running Android P.

This isn't being billed as a major update for the app, instead it's quietly being added to some users' devices; a dedicated support page is now live too, so if you've not received the update yet, that's a solid sign that it'll be on its way soon. We'll keep an eye on it and see if it shows up for more people.

"Voice remote" has started to roll out to some YouTube TV users. It is also important to note that this feature will only be made available to those who pay a $40 YouTube TV streaming subscription. It's worth mentioning that this isn't an update that you can download from the Google Play Store, but rather a server-side push that enables " voice remote" on selected Android devices in waves.

That's a lot of words to tell you that a minor new feature is coming to an app, but it's one that we'll all benefit from.

To access it, you'll need to tap your avatar in the top right hand corner of the YouTube app - it should be available as "Turn on Incognito" just below the Switch account/Sign out option.

The "voice remote" functionality will allow you to control YouTube TV through voice commands. If not, head into Settings and look for the Voice Remote option to toggle it on. For the meantime, it is advisable to have the latest YouTube TV version installed to increase the chances to receive the new voice feature.
