  YouTube’s newest feature reminds you to stop watching YouTube Google made a big deal about the concept of digital wellbeing at Google I/O this year. Yep, that’s right: YouTube can now help you stop watching YouTube. Granted, the feature isn’t turned on by default, but it’s still a nice gesture. You can access it by tapping on your profile icon, then Settings > General > Remind me to take a break. You can choose reminders ranging from every 15 minutes to every 3 hours.

For example, there hasn’t been a Favorites feature until now. Google has announced that, over the next week, it’s rolling out that functionality. You’ll be able to tap a star at the upper right of any photo in your library, and it’ll automatically show up in Favorites. 

A Favorites album is created as soon as you begin starring images. And that’s pretty much it! Nothing fancy. If you don’t see the option to star a photo, you don’t have Favorites just yet. The wait shouldn’t be more than a few days, though.

  Gmail's native Offline mode is making its way to users' accounts You might have access to Google's native Offline mode very, very soon if it hasn't landed on your account yet.The feature, which debuted as part of Gmail's redesign at Google I/O, has started rolling out to users. If you're using a work or school account, your Google admin will have to enable it in G Suite first. But if you have an ordinary account, you're bound to get it in the near future: to activate it, go to Settings, find the Offline tab and tick "Enable offline mail." Take note that you'll only see the option in the new Gmail (and not in the old interface) and if the browser you're using is Chrome 61 or later.

At I/O earlier this month, Google announced other new Photos features that include AI-suggested quick edits to improve photos, color pop, and the ability to colorize old images. The first two of those new capabilities have already rolled out to users.

As for the other low-hanging fruit that Google hasn’t yet addressed, users have plenty of suggestions for things that should probably already be in there.

Google Lens updated with smart text selection and real-time lookup .
The new features Google showed off at I/O 2018 will soon land on your Android devices if they haven't yet. According to 9to5google, smart text selection, style match and real-time results have started rolling out to people's Lens cameras. The new features come with a redesign that rearranges Lens' elements a bit, along with a brand new menu marked "Tap on objects and text," showing you what objects the camera can identify. Among all the features we tested during I/O, we found smart text selection the most intriguing and useful: it gives you a way to quickly look up items in documents around you.
