How To Create A YouTube Channel to Enable Live Chat
If you’ve tried using the live chat on a our website, you may get a message saying “Sign in to Chat” or, “Create a channel to join the chat”. To use the live chat on YouTube, you will need a Gmail account and a YouTube channel. If you have a Gmail account, it’s really easy to create a channel and can be done in under 1 minute (I promise, we timed it).
STEP 1: GO TO YOUTUBE AND CLICK YOUR AVATAR/USERNAME THEN CLICK “CREATOR STUDIO”
Go to: https://www.youtube.com/
STEP 2: CLICK “CREATE CHANNEL”
STEP 3: PICK THE NAME YOU WANT ASSOCIATED WITH YOUR YOUTUBE CHANNEL. KEEP IN MIND THIS WILL BE THE PUBLIC FACING NAME FOR ANY COMMENTS YOU MAKE.
STEP 4: Start Chatting!
Don’t worry, if you just want to join in the conversation during our Live Streams, you don’t have to post any videos on youtube.
