YouTube allows creators to change their channel name without changing entire Google account

YouTube has come up with a new update that will allow its users to change their channel name and picture without an impact on their Google Account. Until now, YouTube creators had to change their name and icon for their entire Google account soo their name on YouTube would be the same name they send emails from in Gmail. Now, the streamer giant is allowing its creators to update their channel name and picture inside YouTube, and those changes will only impact their profile on YouTube. However, this also comes with a drawback to the creators who have a verification badge as they will lose their check mark if they change their name. The creators have to apply to receive the badge again.
