The YouTube TV app has been reportedly added with a new feature that allows you to instruct your choice of shows. It's a toggleable option in the settings page, and will present itself as a floating button on-screen.

Some will say that implementing this type of feature into an application is appreciated, but it can actually be quite the hassle if it isn't readily available to the user.

This is according to a report from Android Police in which some users are seeing the option as you can see in the screenshot above.

Superman actress Margot Kidder aka Lois Lane dies at 69
She continued to act in her later years but her popularity waned after she suffered a highly publicized mental breakdown in 1996. She is survived by her daughter Maggie, the daughter she had with her first husband, American novelist Thomas McGuane.

A magazine owned by an Orban ally later published the names of hundreds of NGO staff, academics, and journalists it said were in the pay of Soros.


Google is surprising some YouTube TV subscribers with a new feature to start the week. It is unclear as to how it is activated, but there is a good chance it is enabled server-side so if you don't see it yet, it's because you weren't selected to be part of the test. This would mean that as of the moment, not everyone can enjoy the feature since it is not available on the Google Play Store just yet.

Some Android apps offer an Incognito Mode where you can use their functionality without being tracked and without your actions being logged into your usage history.

If, however, you've been hoping for a way to continue your oddball spirals down into the dark and rarely explored corners of YouTube, you'll be happy to know that its mobile app might soon get an Incognito mode. 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.
