Automatically add videos to playlists

With Auto add settings on your playlists, you can automatically have new videos added to your playlists.

The Auto add settings allow you to define rules for videos based on tags, keywords in the title, or keywords in the description. If new videos meet the criteria, the videos are automatically added to the playlist.

Note: If you’re in YouTube Studio, click Creator Studio Classic in the left menu to follow these steps.

Here's how to get started:

  1. From your computer, visit your Playlists page .
  2. Click Edit for the playlist you’d like to edit, then select Edit again beside your profile picture.
  3. From the playlist landing page, click Playlist settings.
  4. Click the Auto add tab and define your rules.
  5. Click Save.

Now any newly uploaded videos that meet this criteria will be automatically added to this playlist.
