The bedtime reminder lets you set specific times when you want to see a reminder to stop watching videos and go to bed. You can have the reminder interrupt your video or wait until the video finishes. 

Note this feature is only available on mobile devices.

If you want to finish your video before seeing the bedtime reminder, select Wait until I finish my video to show reminder when setting up.
