I have two Nest Hubs, two smart speakers and a Chromecast Ultra. On every single one of them, I can't cast anything that is 'restricted' according to YouTube. At first I thought this was a Brand Account issue (since YouTube won't let you verify the age on a brand account) but I've since tested this with my regular google account signed into YouTube and it doesn't work either. This is what happens:
I have gone into my device settings on the Google Home app and turned off anything that might restrict. I've gone into my phone and done the same. I even went into my settings on my google account in a web browser to check.
So what I'm looking for is the following:
I understand that Google says they are committed to safety, but for the love of anything holy: I'm a grown adult trying to watch a video about a court case ON A PLATFORM GOOGLE OWNS. Google has everything about me from my credit information to my physical attributes. I don't know what else I can do to prove that I'm an adult and want to watch a freakin video about a freakin crime. Oh! I'm also a YouTube premium subscriber! Stop infantilizing your users, or at least create a single place on your labyrinthine mess of settings pages where I can confirm my identity, unlock any restricting content and pass along that content to my brand account. Oh, and if you really want to make my day: push these settings from the server side so I don't have to reset everything every dang time an app updates. God this is infuriating.
I'm sorry to hear you're having issues with unwanted filters and restrictions. I'd be happy to help the best we can. You can try these additional steps with YouTube contents and see the difference.:
