Quick-Tip: Custom YouTube Channel Name

So as I am sure any Youtuber may know, Google bought YouTube a while back and with that came some changes. The most prominent (besides the change to channel layout), is the unending link between YouTube and Google+. No old plain YouTube accounts can be created anymore, but that does not mean it is the end of the world for custom YouTube channel names.

After a bit of experimenting, it is discovered that a Google+ page can itself also have a YoutTube channel (obvious in hindsight). If you make use of your personal Google account, then you can simply create a page in Google+ and “switch accounts” when logged into YouTube. You will be provided with the option to use YouTube as the page instead of yourself and voila. That ends this quick-tip of the day.
