Why is there still no option to manually sort playlist order or sort alphabetically?
0
This question is predominately rhetorical...I'm going to assume ineptitude.

As someone who has over 20 playlists based on both genre and sub-genre, this is a huge f**king issue. 

I know I'm not the only person who feels this way.

I am solving it by installing Spotify. 

+1 if you are also infuriated by lack of playlist order customization, given it is such a simple feature to implement.

It's ridiculous.

The problem doesn't affect playlists only.
The album view is a joke, since it's all add order, same with liked songs
Local files are sorted, but only by album name, not an artist, what makes little sense.
Strangely, the artists are sorted alphabetically. 

As for a player that has so much leverage thanks to YT integration, the local files support (I hope they'll solve mixed playlists soon) it's just weird to lack such an elementary tool.
If they assume that radio is enough, why even bother creating a library?

I concur, I'm ok with YT music being my new main music option paying for YouTube premium with the acknowledgement that's a work-in-progress, but no way to sort literally anything is an odd oversight.

Hello Felix/YT staff--any update on this? It really is useless to me to have it sort by any kind of date. I need to find the playlist I need to practice and it takes me much hunting to find the one I want. They are all named or numbered 01,10,20, setlist, videos etc. but with such random sorting, it's a mess. I practice while driving a lot, but I'm going to get in an accident just trying to find the next set list to play! And no, I don't want all the set lists merged together in one playlist. Why would you ever sort by last added? Just remove that and put playlists alphabetically so we all have control.

Okay so there's no way to sort playlists alphabetically BUT if you go to the Library section and then click "liked songs"
above "Artists" and under "Albums", you can select it to be sorted by A-Z, Z-A or "Recently Added"

the solution is to "find" ( ctrl/cmd F) "name of your list" when you are looking at your playlist list. 
the fact that you can't sort them IS stupid, however. but then again, it's Google, so stupid is expected when a company has too much power.

Adding on to this from another comment I posted, but I have over a thousand videos on YouTube saved to playlists to categorize them, and searching for a specific video or even playlist is ridiculously and unnecessarily difficult, to the point that I cancelled Premium and often just leave the site out of frustration. Even a basic app has this type of functionality. There aren't really any good third party plugins for this either. I can't even sort the playlists in ABC order on the sidebar. YouTube should really do something about this to increase the amount of time people spend on the site watching videos, and to stop paying customers from canceling subscriptions.
