Since last October you've been able to send commands via your vocal chords to the YouTube TV service through Google Home speakers, but if you don't have access to a Google Assistant device you'll now be able to get chatty with the streaming service through its mobile app.

YouTube already has a "Pause Watch History" function in case you don't want YouTube logging your history, but it's a little hard to find (you have to scroll all the way to the bottom and navigate through your history).
