YouTube has become one of the world’s primary sources of entertainment, and now you can access it on virtually any device. You can then pair those devices (computers, TVs, video game consoles) with your smart phone, allowing you to use your phone like a remote.

How to Pair YouTube to TV

You can either pair your devices from your major device or from your phone. The easiest way is to use your TV/video game console and go through the steps listed below:

  • Install the YouTube app if you haven’t already
  • Open the app
  • Click on “Settings
  • Choose “Pair Devices” from the list of options that appears
  • A pairing code will appear on the TV; go to http://youtube.com/pair
  • Type your code into the appropriate box
  • Click “Add this TV“.

It’s also possible to pair your devices from your smart phone using the process detailed below:

  • Open the YouTube app
  • Click on “Settings
  • Select “Connected TVs” from the available options
  • If you’re using an iPhone, you should automatically connect to the nearest TV
  • If you’re using Android, manually find your TV on the list of available devices and continue with the next steps
  • Click on your TV
  • Type the pairing code into the box that appears (This can be found in the “Settings -> Pair Device” section of the YouTube app on the larger device).

Once you pair YouTube to TV your phone will automatically connect with the system whenever you’re using your home wifi network.

You will need to activate pairing for phones and tablets separately.

How to Play Videos through Paired Devices

Now that your mobile device is connected to your TV there should be a blue “TV” icon near the top of the screen when you open the YouTube app. When you click “play” on your phone the video will automatically stream to your TV.

To switch back to watching videos on your mobile device simply tap the TV icon. The icon will turn gray and your videos will go back to your phone.

Most phones can accept calls without affecting the streaming video.
