YouTube channel users often ask questions like Can I change my YouTube channel name without changing my Google name? or Can you change your YouTube name without making a new account?

Google-owned streaming platform Youtube made it easier for the users to change theirs without making any alterations in their Google Account.
The old method of changing the name was a little daunting and time-consuming. Users have to make efforts in changing both the name as well the profile picture of their google account in order to change their name on youtube. But this new update /feature has made this process very simpler.
This new feature not only changes the youtube profile of the user but also automatically alters their Gmail Identity. Swapping of profile pictures is also possible with this new feature. Chanel Branding can also be done at ease now.
This new feature though does not maintain the previous verification of your account.
