Open YouTube and Play Any Video on Echo

With your Echo and phone connected, you can open the YouTube app on your phone and play any video on your Echo device, enjoying the audio through its speakers.

To start, make sure your smartphone or tablet is paired with your Echo by asking Alexa to pair Bluetooth. Simply say, “Hey Alexa, pair Bluetooth.” Then, go to the Bluetooth settings on your smartphone and connect it to the Echo.

Once paired, you can connect your Echo and phone by using a simple voice command. Just say, “Alexa, connect Bluetooth,” and the devices will establish a connection. If for any reason the voice command doesn’t work, you can manually connect them through the settings on your smartphone.

Once your Echo and phone are connected, it’s time to unleash the power of YouTube. Open the YouTube app on your smartphone and select any video you want to play. The Echo device will play the audio from the video, allowing you to enjoy your favorite YouTube content with enhanced sound quality.

If you need to adjust the volume, you can ask Alexa to increase or decrease it. For example, say, “Alexa, set the volume to 50%.” And when you’re done watching or listening, you can disconnect the Bluetooth connection by saying, “Alexa, disconnect Bluetooth” or by using the Bluetooth settings on your phone.

It’s worth noting that if you have an Echo Show device with a screen, you can also access YouTube through the Silk browser. This allows you to not only listen to audio but also watch videos directly on the Echo Show. While voice commands may not work for playback control, you can still ask Alexa to play a specific video for you.

Remember, while Alexa cannot play YouTube directly, using Bluetooth pairing is a great way to stream YouTube content on your Alexa-enabled speakers. So sit back, relax, and let your Echo device bring your favorite YouTube videos to life.
