Google and YouTube Accounts are Now Linked

When you sign up for a Google account, you get access to a account-level features on a bunch of products through a singular login. That hasn’t included YouTube, until this week.

Now, new YouTube signups will be automatic Google accounts. Existing users can link their YouTube accounts to their Google accounts.

If you’re an existing user, you don’t have to get or link your Google account now, but in the future, features may be rolled out that require it.
