Google offers merging of YouTube and Google+ usernames
Google is rolling out a new feature that would let you merge your usernames on YouTube and Google Plus.
YouTube was acquired by Google and it has allowed users to maintain their original username on the platform.
This new feature would let them use their real name on YouTube if the user so desire.
YouTube spoke about this feature:
Starting today we’re giving you the ability to change how you appear on YouTube, with the option to use your Google+ profile on your YouTube channel. One Google-wide identity was something that proved popular with new YouTube users when we began offering it in March, so we are now extending it to existing users.
The company further said:
However, we realize that using your full name isn’t for everyone. Maybe people know you by your YouTube username. Perhaps you don’t want your name publicly associated with your channel. To continue using your YouTube username, just click “I don’t want to use my full name” when you see the prompt.
