YouTube on Google Nest displays

With YouTube included on your Google Nest display, you can watch YouTube Originals, how-to videos, and much more, seamlessly on your screen. To control YouTube, you can use voice commands like "Play [name of video]" or "Pause," or use the touchscreen display to do the same.

YouTube content settings

Important: If media isn't playing, check if Use Restricted Mode is turned on in your device's YouTube settings.

The Google Home app allows you to block certain content that people in your household can watch or listen to on your Nest display. Children under 13 (or the applicable age in your country) whose accounts are managed with Family Link and that have Voice Match set up are unable to play YouTube videos or YouTube music, but they can access YouTube Kids. Digital Wellbeing controls help you set the content that can be shown on your display. Learn more about using Filters, YouTube settings, and YouTube Kids on your Nest display.
