How To View How Much Time You Have Spent Watching YouTube

So a question often asked is “How much time have I spent watching YouTube ?” well there is now a way to find this out.

The NEW time watched profile feature lets you see your daily average watch time and how long you’ve watched YouTube videos today, yesterday and over the past 7 days.

Note: Your profile doesn’t reflect videos you’ve deleted from watch history or videos you’ve watched in Incognito mode, and is only available when you’re signed into YouTube.

To view your time watched profile:

  1. Sign into YouTube.
  2. Tap your Account icon.
  3. Tap Time watched.

On the Time Watched page, you can also change your settings for Take a break reminder, Autoplay, Notifications: scheduled digest and Notifications: disable sounds & vibrations.

The time watched statistics pull from your watch history and includes your YouTube TV watch history.

Note: When watch history is paused, time watched statistics will not be available.
