This week Google announced that it is removing forced Google+ integration with YouTube, and all of its other products.
"We want to formally retire the notion that a Google" membership is required for anything at Google... other than using Google+ itself," said Google's vice president of streams, photos, and sharing Bradley Horowitz.
Note - Do not rush out and delete your Google+ account right now, as the company has warned that deleting it at the present time will also delete your YouTube channel.
It was just a couple years ago that Google dropped Google+ on YouTube users to create and integrate Google+ accounts in order to continue using the service. The reaction was mostly negative.
"We've also heard that it doesn't make sense for your Google+ profile to be your identity in all the other Google products you use," continued Hororwitz, confirming that the change won't just be affecting YouTube, but all other Google products including Gmail and Google Drive.
