You can move your YouTube channel including the videos, likes, and more in it over from the current account to another available account.

Google Account and Brand Account

Before moving your YouTube channel to another account, you can learn some information about these two types of YouTube account: Google Account and Brand Account.

Google Account

Google Account is the most commonly used YouTube account. If you are a personal user, you need to use a Google Account to sign in to YouTube. That is, as long as you have a Google Account, you can enable your YouTube to be associated with that account. Then, the name of your YouTube channel will automatically be the same as the one you are using for your Google Account.

Brand Account

Usually, a YouTube Brand Account is especially for your brand. It is different from the personal Google Account. If a YouTube channel is associated with a Brand Account, other people can also manage that channel using their own Google Account.
