How to create a playlist on YouTube

You can create a YouTube playlist to separate videos into a single playlist. This feature, present on YouTube and YouTube Music, is very useful for separating content from a single theme or channel.

YouTube automatically creates some playlists for your profile. This is the case with the list of videos marked as “Liked” or added to the “Watch later” section. On the other hand, it is also possible to create lists as per your preference. All of your playlists are found in the “Library” section.

Playlists have three different levels of privacy: public, with free access for everyone; unlisted, allowing viewing only by shareable link; and private, which only your profile can access and view. The creation process is very similar on desktop and mobile. See below how to create playlist on YouTube and YouTube Music!
