Create and manage playlists

A playlist is a collection of videos. Anybody can make playlists and share them, and friends can add videos to your playlist.

You can go to the Library tab  to view all of your playlists.

If a video or channel's audience is set as Made for Kids and you're on a watch or channel page, you won't be able to add it to a playlist. You can still add content from search results into playlists.

To find your playlists, go to the Guide  and click Library.
