You can watch and like videos and subscribe to channels with Google Account but without YouTube channel, you have no public presence on YouTube. You need to create a YouTube channel to upload videos, comment, or make playlists and here is a guide to get you started.

How to create a personal channel

  1. Go to YouTube’s Homepage and Sign in with your Google account if you already have a Google account. Otherwise, click “More options” and then “Create account”.

  2. Try any action that requires a channel, such as uploading a video, posting a comment, or creating a playlist.

  3. If you don’t yet have a channel, you’ll see a prompt to create a channel.

  4. Check the details (with your Google Account name and photo) and confirm to create your new channel.

How to create a channel with a business or other name

You can use a Brand Account to create a channel that has a different name but that’s still managed from your Google Account.

  1. Sign in to YouTube on a computer or using the mobile site.

  2. Go to your channel list.

  3. Choose to create a new channel or use an existing Brand Account:
    • Create a new channel by clicking Create a new channel.
    • Create a YouTube channel for a Brand Account that you already manage by choosing the Brand Account from the list. If this Brand Account already has a channel, you can’t create a new one—you’ll just be switched over to that channel if you select the Brand Account from the list.

  4. Fill out the details to name your new channel and verify your account. Then, click Done. This creates a new Brand Account.

  5. To add a channel manager, follow the instructions to change channel owners and managers.
