Google finally lets us block annoying YouTubers

Google Discover is being expanded with a feature that has been missing for a long time.

The Discover (Discovery) interface, which can be used in the mobile Google Chrome browser and in the dedicated Google application, can easily divert the unwary user from its original purpose, as it offers a personalized selection that lists potentially interesting content on the Internet.

However, the discovery tab sometimes tends to provide completely irrelevant suggestions, including videos from YouTubers that we don’t want to devote our time to. Until now, the only way to prevent such content was to completely block YouTube recommendations, but recently the situation has changed.

In the latest version of the Google app, you can already block individual YouTube channels, so you don’t have to completely give up videos on the platform if you want to get rid of the work of an influencer you find irritating. To do this, we just have to click on the “…” button on the recommendation cards, and then choose to block the YouTuber in question.

Those who are not at all interested in videos can still disable YouTube recommendations, and we can also filter by the topic of the videos. The new options are available in both the Android and iOS versions of the Google app.
