Did you know you can use your phone to watch YouTube on your TV? (this is too cool not to share) If you have an Internet enabled TV (Vizio, Samsung, etc), there is a really slick feature called “Remote” where you use your Android or iPhone to select the video but it plays on your TV. No wires or hardware, just go to the Remote option on on your smartphone. Then- make sure you launch the YouTube app on your Internet TV and it will give you a code to sync it. Again- this is free! No Apple TV or hardware needed!

Here is step-by-step instructions on how to pair your TV with your phone:

1.) Go to on your smartphone.

2.) Click the menu icon (looks like a bunch of stacked lines in the top LEFT of your screen).

3.) The menu should expand, click the ‘gear’ icon at the top, in the middle.

4.) Then select “Connect to TV” from the menu.

  9. Further, to make sure you don’t delete the plug-in, you can look for a tool that allows you to
    add passwords. This is because users often share their
    personal collection including concerts and other popular
    shows. It happens exponentially, and this technique is fairly reliable.
