Many people have been asking how to watch YouTube on Android Auto. There are a few different ways that you can do this, and we’re going to explore all of them in this blog post. We’ll start with the easiest method and work our way down to the more difficult ones. By the end of this blog post, you should be able to watch YouTube videos on your Android Auto head unit no matter what method you use. ###

What is Android Auto?

Android Auto is a system that allows you to control and use your Android phone while you are driving. It is designed to be a safe, hands-free way to use your phone while you are driving. You can use Android Auto to make calls, send texts, play music, and get directions.

Android Auto is available on all Android phones with Android 5.0 or higher. To use Android Auto, you need a compatible car stereo or head unit. You can connect your phone to your car stereo using a USB cable, Bluetooth, or Wi-Fi. Once your phone is connected, you will see the Android Auto interface on your car’s display.

To use Android Auto, you will need to download the Android Auto app from the Google Play Store. Once the app is installed on your phone, open it and follow the prompts to set up Android Auto. Once you have set up the app, you can start using all of its features.

How to use Android Auto with YouTube

Assuming you have an Android phone and a car with Android Auto support, here’s how you can use YouTube with your Android Auto.

First, open the YouTube app on your phone and sign in (if necessary). Then, tap on the Cast icon in the top right corner of the app. This will bring up a list of available devices to cast to, including your car’s head unit. Tap on your car’s name to connect and begin casting.

Once you’re connected, you can browse YouTube as usual on your phone. The video will play on your car’s display, and you can use the touchscreen or physical controls to pause/play, skip ahead/back, etc. Audio will play through your car’s speakers.

One thing to keep in mind is that while you can control playback from your phone, any content that requires additional interaction (like subscribing to a channel or leaving a comment) will need to be done from your car’s head unit itself.

What are the benefits of using Android Auto with YouTube?

Android Auto allows you to bring the power of Google and YouTube into your car. With a simple, intuitive interface, integrated voice controls, and support for a variety of apps, it’s designed to minimize distractions so you can stay focused on the road. Here are some of the benefits of using Android Auto with YouTube:

-You can keep your hands on the wheel and your eyes on the road while still being able to watch your favorite YouTube videos.
-Android Auto automatically adjusts the video quality based on your internet connection, so you won’t have to worry about buffering or interruptions.
-YouTube videos will continue playing even if you switch between apps or turn off the screen, so you can pick up where you left off later.
-If you have an Android TV, you can also cast YouTube videos from your phone to your TV while driving.

How to troubleshoot problems with Android Auto and YouTube

If you’re having trouble using Android Auto with YouTube, there are a few things you can try to troubleshoot the issue.

First, make sure that you have the latest version of the YouTube app installed on your phone. If you don’t have the latest version, update the app and try again.

If that doesn’t work, try restarting your phone and then opening the YouTube app. If that doesn’t fix the problem, try unplugging and replugging in your phone to your car’s infotainment system.

Still having trouble? Try reaching out to Google or your car’s manufacturer for help.
