How To Transfer YouTube Subscriptions To Another Account

If you want to transfer your YouTube subscriptions to a different account, follow these steps to simplify your YouTube experience.

If you have a brand account or a personal YouTube account, you can transfer your subscriptions from one account to another. However, please note that YouTube accounts such as kids’ accounts or G-Suite accounts cannot be transferred.

To transfer your YouTube channel subscriptions, you have two options:

  1. Manually re-subscribe to each channel using your new account. This method requires some time and effort, but it ensures that you have full control over the subscriptions on your new account.
  2. Use Google Takeout to export and import your subscriptions. This method is more convenient if you have a large number of subscriptions. Google Takeout allows you to download a file containing all your YouTube data, including your subscriptions. You can then upload this file to your new account and automatically import your subscriptions.

Transferring your YouTube playlists and videos is also possible. To transfer your playlists, follow these steps:

  1. Save the videos in a playlist on your old account.
  2. Set the playlist to public or unlisted.
  3. Share the playlist URL with your new account.

If you are a content creator with videos on your channel, you can transfer your channel to a brand account and then move ownership to your new account. This ensures that your videos and channel settings are seamlessly transferred.

Lastly, if you want to transfer your videos themselves, you can download them from your old account and upload them to your new account. This way, you won’t lose any of your valuable content during the transfer process.

By following these steps, you can easily transfer your YouTube subscriptions, playlists, and videos to your new account, allowing you to continue enjoying your favorite content without any interruption.

Transferring YouTube Channel Subscriptions

To transfer your YouTube channel subscriptions, you have two options: manually re-subscribe or use Google Takeout. If you choose to manually re-subscribe, you will need to search for each channel individually on your new account and click the “Subscribe” button. This process can be time-consuming, especially if you have a large number of subscriptions.

Alternatively, you can use Google Takeout to export your subscriptions from your old account and import them into your new account. Here’s how:

  1. Go to Google Takeout and sign in with your old account.
  2. Scroll down to find the “YouTube and YouTube Music” section and click on “Deselect all”.
  3. Check the box next to “Subscriptions” to select it.
  4. Click on “All YouTube Data Included” and select “None” to exclude unnecessary data.
  5. Click on “Next step” and choose your desired file type, frequency, and delivery method.
  6. Click on “Create export” to start the exporting process.
  7. Once the export is complete, you will receive an email with a link to download your subscriptions.
  8. Sign in to your new account and go to YouTube Subscription Manager.
  9. Click on “Import subscriptions” and choose the file you downloaded from Google Takeout.
  10. Click on “Import” to transfer your subscriptions to your new account.

By following these steps, you can easily transfer your YouTube channel subscriptions to your new account without the hassle of manually re-subscribing to each channel. Whether you choose to do it manually or use Google Takeout, make sure to double-check that all your subscriptions have been successfully transferred.

Transferring YouTube Playlists and Videos

In order to transfer your YouTube playlists and videos, you can follow these steps to seamlessly transfer your content to your new account.

To begin, you will need to save the videos you want to transfer in a playlist. Simply go to your old account and navigate to the desired video. Click on the “Save” button and add it to a playlist of your choice. Repeat this process for all the videos you want to transfer.

Next, it’s important to set your playlist to either “Public” or “Unlisted” in order to make it accessible to your new account. To do this, go to the playlist settings and choose the appropriate privacy option. If you want to keep your playlist private, select “Unlisted.” If you want to share your playlist with others, choose “Public.”

Once your playlist is set up, you can easily share it with your new account. Simply copy the playlist URL and paste it into a message or email that you can access from your new account. Clicking on the URL will redirect you to the playlist, allowing you to view and interact with the videos.

If you are a content creator with videos on your channel, you may also want to transfer ownership of your channel to your new account. To do this, you can transfer your channel to a brand account. From there, you can assign ownership to your new account, ensuring that all your videos and channel settings are seamlessly transferred.

Lastly, if you want to transfer your videos themselves, you can download them from your old account and upload them to your new account. This way, all your content will be consolidated in one place, making it easier for you to manage and organize.

By following these steps, you can successfully transfer your YouTube playlists and videos to your new account, allowing you to continue enjoying your favorite content without any interruptions.
