Google has updated the popular video streaming site YouTube's privacy settings that allows users to prevent new videos from joining their previously watched videos list.

According to an Android Police report, which has also provided the Application Programming Kits (APK) for download, users will notice a new "Pause Watch History" option, that does not let new videos get clubbed with the list of videos previously watched.

To use the above control, all you need to do is choose the customised option that clears the videos watched history, along with the search history.

Apart from the above, users will also notice a "Pause Watch History" option that can be accessed by navigating to Overflow menu > Settings > Privacy, as per the Androdi Police report.

Upon enabling the above option, users will notice videos watched no longer get stored in the historysection.

Also, the latest YouTube settings are unified, meaning that after selecting your options once, it would be reflected across all devices.

Users accessing YouTube via a computer would notice the "Pause Watch history" option at the top corner of the history webpage.

The new YouTube app, with the above updates is currently available for Android users via APK.
