Since you can place a Nest Hub anywhere in your home, there are a couple of ways to use YouTube through the smart display. First, while preparing food in the kitchen.

Trying to remember a recipe can be tricky, and watching a video tutorial will help you nail it down, so it’s easy to say, “Hey Google, play how to cook orange chicken on Youtube.”

Another easy-to-use example involves having the Nest Hub on a nightstand, you could have YouTube play slower story-based videos to lull the kids to sleep or get everyone ready for bedtime. Here we explain how to configure it.

Step 2: Say “Open YouTube” or “Play [el nombre del título del video que quieres reproducir] in Youtube”.

Step 3: These commands will display the specified video and start playback or open the general YouTube app for viewing.

Step 4: Use the touch controls to choose which video to play.

You can use voice commands or touch controls on the Nest Hub screen to play, pause, and skip between videos.

Although the Google Assistant and Nest Hub are some of the smartest devices we have in our homes, using voice controls may not be as intuitive as we’d like.

Another way to start watching YouTube on your Nest Hub is to stream it from another device. Casting makes sure you’re playing the right video without having to constantly repeat to the Assistant what you want to see.

Nest Hub has Chromecast technology built in, so you can use the YouTube app on your phone, tablet, or website on your computer to cast any video you’re watching on your Nest Hub.

When streaming video to a Nest Hub, you have the option to control media and audio playback from the source device or through voice commands and touch controls on the Hub itself.
