YouTube users can now change their channel name easily, and there is no need to make any sort of alterations to their linked Google account.

The old method of having to change your channel name together with your Google account name and profile image is finally discontinued. The old method not only changes your YouTube profile, but it also affects your Gmail identity.

Changing YouTube Channel Name

According to The Verge, users can now head to the YouTube Creator Studio backend management area and make changes to their channel name without ever needing to touch their Gmail or Google account. You can also swap out your profile picture as well, which will mean that you can update your channel branding with ease

The old process was frustrating for users, so to see YouTube make the changes after being criticized, and actively streamline the process is a massive win for users.

To be able to change your channel name on mobile, you can click on Your Channel, select Edit Name, and tap on Save. Changing the profile icon is the same, just Tap Your Channel, then choose Profile Icon.

To change your channel name on your desktop, you can click on Creator Studio, select Customization, and tap on Basic Info.

From here you can make all the changes that you need. The option should now be live on both mobile and desktop if you need to make channel name alterations, as per CNET.
