Save playlists to your library

You can add playlists that you've created, playlists that other creators have made and videos that you've added to Watch Later to your library. Adding playlists to your library allows you to easily find and view them later.

If you own a playlist, you can publicly add it to your library so that your viewers can add it to their own libraries. You can update your privacy settings to remove your playlists from view. By doing this, you can still see saved playlists in your channel, but other viewers can't.

Follow the instructions below for the YouTube app or mobile site.
