Google has rolled out another update on their YouTube platform. This one is aimed at YouTube Partners.
They can now opt-in to use their real name from their Google+ Profile for their YouTube account.
This comes handy for folks who started a YouTube channel with an obscure handle but they want to switch to their real identity.
Opting in allows you to replace your username with your Google+ profile name (spaces included!), replace your photo with any you’ve uploaded, and include a direct link to your profile. This provides you with a seamless way to connect with and be discovered by your audience across YouTube and Google.
Google further said that they plan to add support for Google+ Pages too in the future.
