Part 1. Step-by-Step on How to Play YouTube on Google Home
Typically, Google Home can play a variety of tracks on the YouTube Music service.

Luckily, you can use Bluetooth to watch videos on PC or phone as you listen to the audio part on your Google Home speaker. Now here is how to import audio from YouTube videos using your PC or smartphone and Google Home smart speaker.
Step 1: On your PC, go to Settings and then click the Bluetooth & other devices option. Now click the Add Bluetooth or other device tab.
Step 2: On the Add a Device window choose the Bluetooth option.
Step 3: To choose your smart speaker on your smartphone, tap the Settings icon, and then click the Paired Bluetooth devices before choosing the ENABLE PAIRING MODE.
Step 4: Once the pairing is complete on your Google Home app, go back to the Add a Device window on your PC and choose your Google Home smart speaker on the list. Google Home will start pairing with your computer.
Step 5: Now open your YouTube video on your PC, and the audio part will automatically start playing on the smart speaker.
Using a Smartphone:

Step 2: On the pop-up window, tap the Settings icon before choosing the Paired Bluetooth Devices. After that, tap the ENABLE PAIRING MODE tab.
