Create & manage playlists

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

You can go to the Library tab "" to view all of your playlists. You can also manage your playlists in YouTube Studio.

If a video or channel’s audience is "made for kids" and you’re on a homepage, you can't add it to a playlist. You can still add content from search results into playlists.
