YouTube Music Playlist: How to Create Playlists and Add Songs

-

|

Introduction

A YouTube music playlist allows you to add a collection of songs or videos into a single location. A playlist is great for having a collection of your favorite songs or videos in one place.

In this guide, I will show you how to create a YouTube playlist in different devices. The guide will also cover how to add songs to a YouTube music playlist and share a playlist.

How to Make a Music Playlist on YouTube

You can create a YouTube music playlist on YouTube.com (via a browser). You can also create playlists on the iPhone and Android Apps.

  • To view your new YouTube music playlist, on the bottom of the App, click Library. Then scroll down towards the middle of the App to see your playlists.

How to Add Songs to a YouTube Music Playlist

This demo is done on YouTube.com (browser). To add a new song to an existing YouTube music playlist:

  • Open YouTube.com on your favorite browser.
  • Then open a song you wish to add to your playlist. Below the video, click the 3 lines with plus (+) sign.
  • Finally, check the box beside the playlist you wish to add the new song (video). Then click on the x sign (top of the pop up).

How to Share a YouTube Music Playlist

To share your YouTube music playlist:

  • Open YouTube.com on your browser. Then click the 3 lines on the top left. Then click Library. To view your playlists, scroll down towards the middle of the page.
  • Beneath the playlist you wish to share, click VIEW FULL PLAYLIST.


  • Then, beside the channel, click the EDIT button.


  • Notice that there is no Share option. This is because the playlist is private. To change playlist privacy settings, click Playlist settings.


  • On the PLAYLIST PRIVACY drop-down, select Public or Unlisted. Then click Save. The Share option is now available. See the second image below.


  • To share your YouTube music playlist, click Share. Then copy the link and send to whoever you wish to share the playlist with.

Important Tip
If you wish for your playlist to be available for anybody that do not have the link, make the playlist public.
