Opening Links with YouTube Go

Links to YouTube content can be opened using the YouTube Go app.

If you have both YouTube and YouTube Go installed, most supported links may open in YouTube Go automatically. If you have both apps on your device and would rather watch content in YouTube and not YouTube Go, follow these steps:

  1. Go to Settings.
  2. Tap "Apps."
  3. Select “YouTube.”
  4. Under the “Advanced” Menu, select “Open by default.”
  5. Select the  “Open supported links” Menu and tap “Open in this app”. 
  6. If “Open in this app” is already selected, choose another option, like “Ask every time,” and then reselect “Open in this app.”
