The initial sign in page of YouTube tells me that I can sign in to YouTube using my Google or YouTube account. Clear enough. But you can’t sign in even if you have a valid Google account but not the other. It will ask you if you already have a YouTube account (well, no…, I thought I could sign-in with my Google account… ), if not it asks you to create one.
I went back and forth to see if I’ve misread anything. I didn’t. The sign in page simply says I can use either account to sign into YouTube. This turns out to be a very misleading statement. I’m guessing the ‘either-or’ sign-in only works if you already have both accounts and already have linked them together. But nowhere on the sign-in page says this. They just assume that everyone already knows how this works (if that’s how it works). Well, apart from how it really works, the fact is, I have a valid Google account and I could not sign into YouTube like the statement on the sign in page suggests. Be more clear guys.
