My assumption is that you mean do we host a Youtube CDN on our network and the answer is no.

OP looks to be asking about direct peering at one of the various IX that Google has a presence in.

»peering.google.com/about/peering_policy.html

They peer at no cost if you have a presence in one of the exchanges. I've setup and manages multiple of these with Google over the years and it's hassle free and can greatly reduce latency and capacity issues compared to normal BGP options.

Edit: dded their peering link

Has me wondering though because he refers to Open Connect which is hosting their CDN on our network and Youtube has the same arrangement. He never posted back so it isn't very clear.
