Use a mobile browser, go to the YouTube page, tap the three dot menu in your browser, select "Desktop site", then find what you want to here, start the music and let it play, this should make YouTube continue playing while the screen is off. Then set your notifications/status bar to show on lockscreen then set your browser app as a shortcut on lockscreen.

I have a Galaxy J7 set like this with Firefox browser, I can play YouTube with the screen off, when I tap the power button, I can open the firefox notification that is playing the music and control it from there without unlocking the screen.

Try this, maybe it will work, maybe it won't.


I found that by doing a Google search for:

"Google Assistant play YouTube from lockscreen"

Try doing the same search as above and go through your results to see if any of them work.
