Basics of the YouTube App on Your Samsung Galaxy Tablet

By Dan Gookin

YouTube is the Internet phenomenon you can access through your Samsung Galaxy tablet that proves that real life is indeed too boring and random for television. Or is that the other way around? Regardless, you can view the latest videos on YouTube — or contribute your own — by using the YouTube app on your Galactic tablet.

Search for videos in the YouTube app by touching the Search icon. Type the video name, a topic, or any search terms to locate videos. Zillions of videos are available.

The YouTube app displays suggestions for any channels you’re subscribed to, which allows you to follow favorite topics or YouTube content providers.

  • Use the YouTube app to view YouTube videos, rather than use the Chrome app to visit the YouTube website.

  • Ensure that the tablet is oriented horizontally to view the video in a larger size.

  • Because you have a Google account, you also have a YouTube account. It is recommended that you log in to your YouTube account when using the YouTube app: Touch the Menu button and choose the Sign In command. Log in if you don’t see your account information.

  • Not all YouTube videos are available for viewing on mobile devices.
