However, users can choose to dismiss the reminder and keep watching

If you think you spend too much time browsing videos on YouTube, Google's latest feature is just for you.

The company has rolled out a feature that lets a user set a "Take a break" reminder and limit video viewing time. 

A user will be able to set a reminder for every 15, 30, 60, 90 or 180 minutes. During the break, the video will pause automatically and a "Take a Break" notification will pop on the screen notifying that they have been binge-watching videos for longer than they decided to.

However, users can choose to dismiss the reminder and keep watching. The new feature will be rolled out in the latest update of YouTube.
