Roku Premiere disappeared from the list of streaming devices

Hi. I used to stream Youtube videos from my phone or macbook to Roku. A few weeks ago my Roku Premiere disappeared from the list of streaming devices. I basically don't see the stream button in Youtube neither on my phone, nor on my Macbook (Youtube site opened in Chrome). Why could this happen? Is it a Youtube change or a Roku issue?

You may have to re-link your YouTube account to allow streaming to your Roku.. also, make sure your YouTube channel on the Roku is logged into your YouTube account.
Yeah, I got some Rokus.

Interestingly, I have never logged into Youtube application on Roku, because I don't want my family to deal with my youtube suggestions and playlists. And it perfectly worked for 3 years.
Why do you think I should be logged in in the app?

I don't know if you need to, but I swear at one point, inhad to link my Roku to YouTube in order to cast to it from my device.

Yeah, I linked the roku app with my phone, and now it's working. Thanks for your advice.
However, I noticed some weird effects like, if I restart my Google Wifi mesh, for a few minutes after the restart I could cast to roku without logging it. And a few minutes later the Cast button disappeared. I think it could be caused by the Google Wifi firmware update.
