YouTube Tests Google+ Integration

Now that YouTube uses Google Accounts, Google can easily integrate YouTube with other Google services. The latest YouTube redesign made the integration with social networks more prominent and the videos from Google+ are just one click away.

YouTube now tests the header that's already displayed in Google Search, Gmail, Google Docs and many other Google services. The header shows your Google+ notifications, a box that lets you share videos with other Google+ users and links related to your Google profile.



Right now, the Google+ header is only displayed if you haven't created a YouTube account and you log in using your Google account (so you don't have a YouTube username and channel). Obviously, you need to join Google+ to see the new features.

{ Thanks, Michael. }

  2. @Madis:

    I've mentioned in the last paragraph that, at least for now, this only works for Google accounts that don't have a YouTube username/channel. If you have a Google account that doesn't have an associated a YouTube account, it should work (you also need to join Google+).

  3. I just closed my Youtube account to get the new interface. It worked perfectly. Note that few features requires to create a personal Channel but it will soon be unnecessary (I'll wait): http://support.google.com/youtube/bin/answer.py?hl=en&answer=1626189
