Problems with Airplay on the YouTube App

iOS and iPadOS

Hi All,
I don't use the YouTube App on my iPhone very often, but when I do I like to Airplay it to my Apple TV.
Later versions of the YouTube App had a handy little Airplay button right under the Video player, making flicking videos off to the TV a breeze.
But right now, running the latest version of YouTube on IOS11.3 I cannot find the AirPlay button.
I can still hand off Videos through the Mirror function in the Control Panel, but it's cumbersome compared with the in App feature.

Could some clever-clogs YouTuber please tell me where to find the AirPlay button?

Have a happy Day all,

When playing a video try tapping the YouTube TV button. From there, tap "Bluetooth and airplay devices", and you should be able to select your tv from there. Only annoying thing is after you make the change the device selection screen doesn't close, so you'll have to then do a 2-finger scrub to get out of it and return to your video.
