Video service YouTube says it is putting the finishing touches on usernames. This should make it easier for community members to find each other and get in touch.
We will gradually roll out the option to choose a username for all channels in the coming weeks. The name is unique and can be used by others to mention you in, for example, comments and community posts. Users will be told in advance via email and a YouTube Studio notification when they can capture their username.
In most cases, after choosing a username, it will automatically be linked to your channel’s personalized URL. But if you want a different username, you can still change it in YouTube Studio if you want. No personalized URL yet? Then you can choose a username for your channel.
If you have not yet chosen a username for their channel by November 14, 2022, YouTube will automatically allocate one (which you can change at any time).
