Hi Sharperson,


Thanks for posting and sorry for the delay.


Some video apps require customers to link the app account to their Google Account. 


  1. Make sure that your mobile device is connected to the same Wi-Fi or linked to the same account as your speaker or display.
  2. Open the Google Home app.
  3. Tap account (your initial or your profile picture).
  4. Verify the Google Account on screen is the one linked to the speaker or display. To switch accounts, tap the down arrow icon  and then choose another account or add another account.
  5. Go back to the home screen.
  6. Tap the plus icon and then Video.
  7. Choose a video streaming service, tap Link ,and then Link Account.

Let us know how it goes.
