Change Youtube account to a brand account

I am wondering if on the YouTube app on Nest, I can change into a brand account. I do not use a personal account on YouTube and do all my watching on a brand account attached to the same email. However on Nest, I can’t find any setting to change the account. This is an issue to me.

I have a the same issue , I have an open support case with google and was hoping to give them references to other cases with similar issues to see if that would help expedite a change

if anyone else is checking this thread and is wondering if you have a similar issue you can look to see if you can switch your "account"  by following the link below to the google support instructions

here is a link to some instructions

below I have included links to other threads that have issues with switching youtube accounts in case any of the answers listed in those threads help you and or to show nest/youtube/google this is an issue being experienced by multiple users

Hi folks, 

 

Thanks for visiting the Community. 

 

Since this thread hasn't had activity in a while, we're going to close it to keep content fresh.

 

Your YouTube accounts are automatically linked to your speaker or display when you link your Google Account or when you set up your devices. However, Nest speakers or displays are designed to work with a regular Gmail account to maximize the usage of the device compared to business or G-Suite that has security restrictions.

 

If you have other questions, feel free to submit another post and provide as many details as possible so that others can lend a hand. Hope this helps! 

 

Kind regards, 

Alex
