Incognito mode is a boon if you want to browse in private without anyone else getting to know what you are looking out for. The same feature on YouTube will be a great option if you do not want videos to find their way to your watch history. So long, the video streaming platform missed out on this feature but not anymore.
YouTube has recently received a new feature called Incognito Mode. This feature lets you watch videos on the platform without leaving any traces of the same. This feature was under testing in May and now the Android users have started getting the YouTube Incognito Mode feature.
