Do you enjoy watching YouTube videos on your Android TV? Have you ever wondered how to view and interact with the comments on those videos? In this tutorial, we will guide you through the process of accessing and reading YouTube comments on your Android TV.

Step 1: Launch YouTube App

To get started, make sure your Android TV is turned on and connected to the internet. Navigate to the home screen and locate the YouTube app. Use your remote control to select and open the app.

Step 2: Find a Video

Once you have opened the YouTube app, use the remote control to browse through the available videos or search for a specific video using the search bar. Once you find a video that interests you, select it by pressing the enter or OK button on your remote control.

Step 3: Play the Video

After selecting a video, a preview screen will appear. Press the play button on your remote control to start playing the video.

Step 4: Access Comments

While watching a video on your Android TV, you can access the comments section by following these steps:

  • Option 1:
  • If you are using a smart TV with voice control functionality, simply say “Show comments” or “View comments” while watching a video. The YouTube app will automatically display the comments section for you.

  • Option 2:
  • If your TV does not support voice control or if it’s not enabled, use your remote control to navigate to the bottom of the screen while watching a video. You should see an option labeled “Comments.” Select this option using your remote’s arrow keys and press enter or OK.

  • Option 3:
  • Alternatively, you can pause the video and move the playback cursor to the bottom of the screen. A menu will appear, and you can select the option labeled “Comments” using your remote control.

Step 5: Interact with Comments

Once you have accessed the comments section, you can read and interact with the comments using your remote control. Here are some common actions you can perform:

  • Reply:
  • To reply to a specific comment, navigate to that comment using your remote’s arrow keys. Select the “Reply” button or icon and enter your reply using the on-screen keyboard.

  • Like or Dislike:
  • To express your opinion about a comment, navigate to that comment and select the “Like” or “Dislike” button or icon.

  • Report:
  • If you come across a comment that violates YouTube’s community guidelines, you can report it by selecting the “Report” button or icon next to that comment.


    Please keep in mind that not all videos may have comments enabled by the video uploader. In such cases, you won’t be able to access or view any comments for that particular video.
