Google has tightened the connection between Google+ and YouTube with a new tool that lets users import videos from the former to the latter.

Users that have merged their YouTube channel with Google+ will find a new import option in the upper right corner on the YouTube upload page. Clicking the “import” button brings up a window showing all the available Google+ videos that can be imported. The importing can be done one-at-a-time, or in bulk, and YouTube will give you the chance to edit the titles and other attributes just as you do with traditional uploads. You can also set these imported videos to private.

Google announced the new tool in the YouTube Help Forum and shared this video that explains how it works:

Brands and marketers that are active on both sites should find this a more convenient way to get videos — especially auto-uploaded ones that are stored in Google+ — in front of their YouTube audiences.
