Hi guys.

I am wondering if it's possible to be signed into two Youtube accounts at the one time, or have the option to "Switch Accounts" at the click of a button. I have my own personal channel, and also a gaming channel. I want to keep them separate, but find myself logging in + out of each other and its getting tiresome.

Using a Laptop, Windows 10, Chrome Browser...

Thanks!

Im sure I have done that before by clicking my little picture at the top right.

Are they 2 channels on one account or 2 seperate google accounts you have tho?

In the top right click the icon with your photo and press add account.
This will let you do a multiple sign-in, you can switch accounts with the same menu.

Hmm, all my channels (all 3 of them) are on one account so not sure if it works across account. Otherwise add your other account to the channel so they can both be managed from one account.

Just make another user profile in Google Chrome under settings and make a shortcut to it, then sign into the accounts from the 2 different Google Chrome profiles.

Possible with two different browsers 

Like you can open one account in Firefox and the other account in Chrome or IE

Just use googles multiple account system, click on your avatar in the top right and switch users.

shouldnt have to login or anything, it works just like google mail.
