Sign up for an account on YouTube
If you don't have a Google Account, here's how to get started:
Create a Google Account on your computer
- Click Sign in in the upper right corner of YouTube on your computer.
- Click Create Account and enter some basic information to create your new Google Acocunt. You'll be asked to create a Google username when signing up. This is your new Gmail email address only - it will not be your public name on YouTube.
- Once you're done setting up your Google Account, click Back to YouTube.
On the YouTube Android app
On the YouTube iOS app
On the YouTube mobile web app
After you sign up for YouTube, you can take advantage of many YouTube features, including Like, Subscribe, Favorites, Watch Later, and Watch History. YouTube will also be able to personalize video recommendations based on the videos you’ve liked and your subscriptions.
If you'd like to upload your own videos, comment on videos, or create playlists, you can create a Channel.
