Smart TVs & streaming devices (including Roku)

After linking your phone, tablet, or computer to the YouTube app on your TV,  you can use your device to control what you watch next.

When you select a video you'll be able to either play the video immediately, or add it to the TV Queue. The TV Queue allows you to create a list of videos to watch on your TV and removes the need to select a new video each time one ends.

Note: If you're a YouTube TV member looking to watch YouTube TV on your television, check out the YouTube TV Help Center for more information.
