Find out how you can connect your phone’s or tablet’s YouTube App to your TV wirelessly.
You can control YouTube in your TV wirelessly through WIFI with your phone or any other mobile device using a Smart TV or any of the supported devices below:
- Smart TVs with the YouTube app
- Android TV
- Google TV
- Playstation 3 and Playstation 4
- Xbox 360 and Xbox One
- Wii U
- Blu-ray Disc Player with the YouTube app installed
- All set-top boxes or cable boxes with the YouTube app installed
If your TV can connect to your WIFI network and has a YouTube app installed, then your TV is a Smart TV! There’s no need to buy any other TV device such as Chromecast to control YouTube with your mobile device and enjoy a YouTube TV Queue. However, if your TV is NOT a smart TV, consider getting a Chromecast.
1 Connect your Smart TV to the same WIFI network where your mobile device (phone, tablet or computer) is connected.
2 Install and Update the YouTube application in your Smart TV.
3 Open the YouTube app in your Smart TV and choose Pair.
4 Using the mobile device you want to pair with your TV, go to youtube.com/pair and enter the code displayed on your screen
5 On the Link with TV Code option, choose Enter TV Code
6 Enter the TV Code shown on your Smart TV.
7 Once this is done, go to your mobile device’s YouTube app and click on the cast Icon and select the TV you just paired with.
8 Browse YouTube videos and watch them on your TV. Add to the TV queue for non-stop viewing. This TV is useful for Karaoke nights! Just browse for song titles or artist names and add the word “karaoke”.
