Couple of things I discovered last night on my S10 running One UI 2.

 

Playing YouTube videos in the background

 

  • Google Chrome app opening page > YouTube (or 'Home -YouTube') > choose your video > Settings  (top 3 dots) > Desktop site > [play video] > Home button.

 

Select the 'YouTube' /'Home - YouTube' iconSelect the 'YouTube' /'Home - YouTube' icon

 

'Selecting Desktop site' will take you to the desktop version of the YouTube video'Selecting Desktop site' will take you to the desktop version of the YouTube video

 

If the video stops playing, pull down the Notifications/Quick Panel, and press play on the notification.
