Google reducing Google+ requirements for other Google Services

Google has announced plans to reduce the requirement for Google+ accounts for services such as uploading videos to YouTube and more.

While we have all known for ages that it doesn’t make sense for your Google+ profile to be your identity in all the other Google products you use, it appears it has finally sunk into Google.

In the coming months, a Google Account will be all you’ll need to share content, communicate with contacts, create a YouTube channel and more, all across Google. YouTube will be one of the first products to make this change,

In the coming weeks, YouTube will no longer require a Google+ profile when you want to upload, comment, or create a channel. If you’re happy with things as they stand, you don’t have to do a thing. If you want to remove your Google+ profile, you’ll be able to do this in the coming months, but do not do it now or your YouTube channel will be deleted.

Starting today, the comments you make on YouTube will now appear only on YouTube, not also on Google+. And vice-versa.
