To all you YouTube creators out there: We now have a method (in beta!) to connect your YouTube channel to a Google+ Page. If you do this, several things happen:

* Your YouTube channel can act on G+.
* You can have multiple managers (up to 50) for your channel, without needing to share spreadsheets full of passwords.
* You can have any name you want for your YouTube channel and page.
* You can host Hangouts On Air via your Google+ Page.
* Various other features unlock, like the ability to have a YouTube tab on your G+ page, and improved video sharing in YouTube.

We're working hard on ways to activate YouTube channels so that they can take full advantage of everything Google has to offer. This is a step in that which should open up some especially useful features for you.

Check out this blog post for more details and how you can use this. The feature is still rolling out, so if you don't see it yet, check back again in a bit!
