Google Makes New YouTube Channel Creation Easier For Those With Multiple Channels

Google announced a new small but helpful feature for YouTube today. Now when you go to create a new channel, you’ll have the option to have it connected with a Google+ Page. This makes it easier for channel creators that already have other channels.

As YouTube software engineer Brett Hobbs explains, “Previously, every channel you created needed to have its own Google account login. If you’re a creator that manages many channels, you might even have a spreadsheet to organize the various email addresses and passwords you use to log in to your channels.”

“We made a significant improvement to the multiple channel management experience recently when we launched the option to connect your existing channels with a Google+ page,” he notes. “Google+ page connected channels have enhanced channel management features that allow you to manage up to 50 channels with a single login, and multiple individuals can manage your channel with their own logins.”

Now with the new feature, things are just easier right from the start.

Of course this also means that those who go to create YouTube channels for the first time will be encouraged to use a Google+ page, and that can’t hurt for Google+ usage.

To create a new channel connected to a new Google+ Page, sign in, go to youtube.com/channel_switcher, and click Create New Channel. Then, provide a name for the channel and a Google+ page.

To create a new channel connected to an existing Google+ page, sign in to a Google account that’s a manager or owner of the page, then go to the channel switcher page, and click the name and avatar of the Google+ page.

      This is a pretty helpful feature for large organizations managing different youtube channels for different category of videos. Everything under one roof would be ideal as always.

    So, should the Google+ account be set up as my personal name if i’m managing two separate business channels?

    So Google + in my name, tied to
    YouTube Channel for business A
    YouTube Channel for Business B, etc

    I don’t want any business stuff posted on my personal G+ account and visa versa

    It would be nice if these instructions worked…..they don’t work for me….a youtube video would be a nice way to show us as I don’t have a “create new channel” link and I had an extra step to confirm my user that wasn’t not spoken of above. :(

    Will anything that affects one channel also affect all others is what concerns me.

    It’s a great idea but what if you already created more than one gmail accounts so you could have multiple youtube channels. There doesn’t appear to be any way to move the youtube channel to another email address and link it to a Google+ page. Instead it makes you create a new Google+ page and link that to each of your gmail accounts. I don’t want a bunch of different Google+ pages. My original email address already has a Google+ page that’s not linked to a youtube channel and I want to link it to channel I already have on a different email account but it doesn’t seem possible.

    It was MUCH easier BEFORE Google bought it and tried to control the world. Want a new acct? Create one…easy peasy. Hate Google control systems!
