YouTube TV now supports Safari for Mac, while website currently works on iPadOS with PiP

Officially, watching Google’s cord-cutting service on the web requires Chrome or Firefox, while Chromium-based browsers — like Microsoft Edge — also work. In recent days, YouTube TV has rolled out support for Safari on macOS.

Previously, visiting tv.youtube.com in desktop Safari would just provide instructions on how to set-up the service on televisions and a link to the “Supported devices” help article.

With macOS Monterey and Safari 15.1, the YouTube TV website now fully works. You can browse and watch programming at up to 1080p on the base plan. Screenshotting a stream unfortunately does not work, while we haven’t been able to check whether earlier Mac versions are supported.

YouTube TV started rolling out support for Safari on Friday, and it’s now widely available as of Monday. Google has yet to detail this expanded support and still says that it’s “working to bring YouTube TV to more browsers in the future.”
