YouTube offers something for everyone. From cooking videos, to how to fix your car – you can learn it all through videos uploaded to the website. Not only can you watch, but you can also listen. With endless tracks uploaded. Both music videos and the audio alone. Whether you want to create or watch and listen, we’ll show you how to set up your first YouTube account.
Firstly you’ll need a Google account as this will allow you to proceed further and create a YouTube account. If you want to upload to the platform, you will need a YouTube channel. A Google account and a YouTube channel are slightly different. With a Google account you can sign in to YouTube and there you’ll be able to like and comment on videos. However, you won’t be able to upload without a channel of your own on the platform.
Being signed in via Google allows you to view recommended channels. After interacting with channels you like, you’ll start receiving others as suggestions for you to watch. Enter the email address you use for your Google account, and you’ll be able to log into YouTube instantly. The video above shows you exactly how you can sign up and once on the app, how you can then sign in. You can stay signed in which is helpful as once you’re in, you don’t need to sign in again.
You’ll be able to interact with your favourite YouTube stars and artists. Comment on their videos and like them to show your support. You can then receive replies from the creators themselves. Subscribe to your favourites as this will help boost their numbers and get more people watching them. The more subscribers a channel has, the more YouTube will push that account. If you want to create your own videos on YouTube, this video will show you how.
