We all use the YouTube application on our mobile phone to watch videos on the most popular video hosting and sharing platform. The videos that we watch are all saved in the history of the app. It is a useful feature if we want to go back to a particular video that we watched some time ago. The history feature is also used by the application to show us relevant videos that we may be interested in. But what if there are unwanted items in YouTube’s history? We must clear it. We can not only clear the watch history but we can also pause it for a while and unpause it as per our need. Additionally, we can also clear the search history on YouTube. The search history shows up when we tap on the search bar. It is actually used to customize our searching activity.
