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.

  • Beneath the playlist you wish to share, click VIEW FULL PLAYLIST.


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

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