CC w/Google TV Remote Control Navigation in Youtube

Community Member

Just have a quick question concerning the ability, or lack thereof, to navigate to a previous video/channel on Youtube using the CC w/Google TV remote control (version 1.61.304433). Is there a way to navigate to a previous video/channel? I have seen users report that double-clicking the DOWN button or pressing and holding the BACK button would allow you to perform this function while in Youtube, but I have had no luck at all. Seems a bit perplexing that a backward/forward functions weren’t included. Even the new Sideclick add-on doesn't appear to have these controls up front. Advance thanks for any information on this issue and happy 2022/2023 holidays to all!!

Hey there Bone1,

Welcome to the Chromecast Community Forum! I was playing around in the YouTube interface, and it does look like the only way to view a previous video is through the Library > History tab if you hold the Back button. Although, I do like the idea of being able to easily go to a previous video or channel in an easier manner. If you have the time, would you be able to submit feedback via Google TV? Google takes all feedback seriously, and the more feedback they receive regarding a specific feature, the more likely they are to prioritize it.

I look forward to your response, and if you have any other questions or concerns for me, please let me know! Otherwise, I'll lock the thread in 24 hours.

Best regards,
