Do you have Smart TV in your home? Then you can pair your Android phone with the TV and enjoy desired Youtube videos on the big screen. Actually every smart TV has built in Youtube application. But it’s hard to search for videos through TV remote. Simply by pairing your smartphone with the Smart TV, you can select the desired videos from phone and play them directly on the TV. “Computer Era” is going to explain the procedure for this.
No Chromecast needed..
Google released Chromecast to stream video and audio content on big screen with the help of WiFi. But if you have smart TV embedded with Youtube default app you no need to purchase Chromecast for this purpose. Just pairing the mobile and TV is sufficient.
How to Pair
Open “Youtube” application in your smart TV. Every smart TV has separate menu button for installed applications. Just find it open Youtube. There will be “Pair device” option available in your TV app. Just select it. Immediately pairing code will appear on your TV screen. Meanwhile open Youtube app in your Android Phone.
Now open “Settings” from the menu. Here you can find “Connected TVs” option, tap it. In the next screen Youtube displays all the earlier connected TV’s to your Google account and provides another option to add new TV. You have to select “Add a TV” option.
Now in the final screen on the Android phone, you need to enter the pairing code which the Smart TV provided to you earlier. Type it in the “Enter pairing code” screen and tap ADD. If the code matches immediately both the phone and TV got paired.
Now on wards you can stream any selected content from your mobile’s Youtube app to your smart TV. To get things work for you, TV and phone must be connected to same wifi network, otherwise pairing process will fail.
