YouTube Video Paused Continue Watching - How To Disable In Google Chrome

In 2019, Google updated YouTube with a new video reminder feature. That prompt says, Video paused. Continue watching? Well, what a great feature - I don't think!

The Paused Video prompt pops up in the browser while the video is still playing for a certain period of time inactive. That prompt pauses videos that are still playing in background YouTube tabs.

However, the Paused Videos feature doesn't work well for YouTube users. Some of them want to have their YouTube music video playlist play in background tabs, and this reminder can be very annoying.

Furthermore, some YT users have also mentioned on Google forums that the frequency of Video reminders is increasing.

YouTube doesn't include any built-in option to turn off that prompt, so this tutorial will cover this topic for all browsers.

Note: To make this process easy, make sure that the browser you are trying to add the extension to is set as your default option. If you want to install the extension in a browser other than your default one, copy-paste the link for the extension shown here.

How do I stop YouTube from pausing My continue watching?
