Create or edit a playlist

Never lose track of your favorite music videos by creating custom playlists in YouTube Music. 

How to create and edit playlists in YouTube Music

Your playlists will show up on the Library tab of both the YouTube Music and YouTube apps.

When you are viewing a made for kids video, song, or an artist detail page, the Menu  options will be different than what is displayed on other content. You will not be able to add this content to a playlist, to your liked songs, or share it. 

Playlists will default to private for supervised accounts. Learn more about our supervised experience on YouTube here.
