People can now transfer videos from their Google+ profiles to their YouTube accounts. We recently saw that this was in the works, but Google has officially made it available to everyone. Imports can be saved as public or private just like any standard YouTube video, which this makes this a nifty way to create an extra backup of Google+ instant uploads from your smartphone or tablet.

If you’re thinking about giving this a try, check out the demo video above which highlights how the import process works. It might come in handy if you want to share your videos with a larger audience, or if you ever decide to leave Google+.
