Technical Limitations & Workaround
When the audio does not play during YouTube video playback on the YouTube card, may be due to the policy settings on web browsers, where audio is blocked during video playback.
We recommend setting the autoplay policy to allow audio, when using the following browsers:
For enterprise users, would require the IT Administrator to set the policy to always allow autoplay with audio.
More information on how to do this here: https://dev.chromium.org/administrators/policy-list-3#AutoplayAllowed (mass deployment policy)
For individual users, as the autoplay-policy flag had been removed from Chrome 76, users would be required to set the autoplay-policy flag via program arguments.
