YouTube account now showing email addresses??

Under the account section of the YouTube app where you can switch between different accounts I've noticed that above each account I can now see the email address. This information wasn't there before. Previously it'd just be account names. Was there a new update that enabled this feature? Does it show for anyone else too?

Ask Google since they are the developer of the channel.

Re: YouTube account now showing email addresses??


Most app on Roku were not built by Roku, but by the appropriate app developers. In this instance, Google, who owns YouTube, is responsible for all the features and changes on the YouTube app.

Google does update the YouTube app from time to time, rolling out features and changes. I've not personally noticed that change, but I do know they have made changes to how the multiple accounts display. As I said, I don't have multiple users on my YouTube app, but a family member has noticed changes. If you're curious about features of the YouTube app, whether Roku or otherwise, try the YouTube Support pages.
