How To Sign In To Your YouTube Account

Many users experience problems when they first sign in to their account on the YouTube app on a Smart TV or set-top box.

The fact is that the YouTube app on all modern TVs looks almost the same. YouTube on the TV can be watched without authorization, that is, it is not necessary to log in. But authorization gives us the opportunity to receive interesting recommendations, put likes and dislikes, synchronize between devices (have access to the viewing history on a TV, computer, phone), etc.

It is very convenient, for example, when you watch some video on your phone, do not watch it to the end, turn on the TV, start YouTube and continue watching from the same moment. Well, you can watch YouTube without ads on your TV. If your account has a YouTube Premium subscription. You can also log into several different accounts and switch between them.

Signing in to your YouTube account is done in the application itself on the TV. You can do this in two ways:

• TV login (use remote control) is when we manually enter our Gmail and Google account password.

• Sign in using your phone or computer (through a browser) – to sign in you will need a computer or mobile device on which you are already signed into your account. This device and the TV must be connected to the same Wi-Fi network.
