YouTube TV picked up a new feature today called Voice Remote. 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. Launch YouTube for iOS, head to settings, then tap "Remind me to take a break" and select an interval.

The command list is pretty extensive too, with controls that not only let you search for content, but ones that let pause, fast forward, rewind, and adjust volume. And finally, the voice-powered remote feature is made available in the mobile app.

Speak any of the commands below into your device's microphone. A popup explaining how the app works will appear if you are one of the chosen few to receive it now. Google has actually had a support page out about this feature for quite some time, but it never actually flipped the switch on the feature until now. According to some reports, the feature will only accessible for those with month subscription for a YouTube TV streaming by shelling out $40. Through the program, Google wants to help users realize just how much time they're spending on a phone, in turn hopefully combating smartphone addiction.
