Hi Dannyyeoh,

YouTube is a video streaming service and a Google Home/Nest is a speaker that doesn't have a display so this is why it's not an option for a routine.

You should be able to do this with a YouTube music channel.

You can also manually cast the music from a YouTube video from the Google Home app on an Android device or use a Bluetooth connection on iOS or Android.
