YouTube’s TV app will now connect to your phone’s TV app: Here’s how


YouTube is rolling out a new feature that will allow users to “effortlessly connect” their YouTube TV app to that of their iOS or Android phone. YouTube says its information showed that “more than 80% of people said they use another digital device while watching TV”. He also revealed that “as of January 2022, viewers are watching over 700 million hours of YouTube content on TV daily.”

His research also showed that users simultaneously open the YouTube mobile app and interact with the video (eg, liking, subscribing) via their phone, while playing the same video on the TV. This information prompted YouTube to roll out this new feature. This feature will ensure users have the same experience on their TV as on a mobile device.

YouTube says TV and mobile must be signed into the same account.

Users need to open YouTube app on TV and then open YouTube app on phone. They need to click on the “Connect” prompt that will automatically appear on their phone. The phone will be synchronized with the TV.

Users can now interact directly with the video they are watching on TV from the comfort of their phone. YouTube says it will be easier to read video descriptions, leave comments, share the video with a friend, or support favorite creators by sending a Super Chat or becoming a member, while watching on the big screen.

YouTube also plans to add more features to the TV app. The company said it plans to “test new designs” for the video playback page. The idea is “to bring more unique YouTube features to the TV, including the ability to browse and purchase products featured in videos,” he notes.
