A Step-by-Step Guide on Creating a Playlist on TikTok

There are two ways you can organize your videos into playlists; From a video and from your profile.

With millions of videos on TikTok, creating playlists can help creators organize their content into specific categories. This way, viewers can easily find and watch related videos in a sequence. However, it’s important to note that currently, not everyone has access to this feature, and only public videos can be added to a playlist.

Here’s how to create a playlist on TikTok:
There are two ways you can organize your videos into playlists; From a video and from your profile. However, you can still add a video to a playlist from the post screen.

Make a Playlist From a Video

To create a playlist from a video on TikTok:

  1. From the TikTok app, open one of your videos.
  2. Tap the Menu icon, which looks like three dots, and select “Add to playlist.” Alternatively, long-press on a video to open a pop-up menu with the “Add to playlist” option.
  3. Choose “Create a playlist.”
  4. Name your playlist. Pick a name that accurately describes the category of videos you’re grouping together.
  5. Create your playlist by selecting videos to add to it. When someone watches a video in your playlist, they’ll be prompted to view the rest of the videos in the playlist.
Make a Playlist From Your Profile

To create a playlist from your profile on TikTok:

  1. Go to your profile by tapping on the icon in the lower right corner of the app.
  2. Open the Videos tab, located on the far left side of the screen, beside private videos.
  3. Select “Sort videos into playlists.” After creating your first playlist, this option will disappear.
  4. Name your playlist and add videos to it. You can add as many videos as you like, but each video can only be in one playlist at a time.
  5. Reorder your videos in the playlist as needed. You can sort them by view count, chronological order, or any other method you prefer.
  6. Tap “Create playlist” to save your playlist.
  7. Add a Video to a Playlist When Posting

You can also add a video to a playlist when posting it on TikTok:

  1. Create your video in the TikTok app.
  2. On the Post screen, tap “Add to playlist.”
  3. Choose the playlist you want to add the video too.
  4. Tap “Post” to upload your video.

It’s important to keep in mind that before you can add a video to a playlist from your Post screen, you’ll need to create a playlist first. If you haven’t created a playlist, you won’t see the “Add to playlist” option. Additionally, note that the most recent video added to a playlist will be the first video that plays in the playlist, but creators can still manually reorder the videos if they prefer their oldest added videos to play first.

In conclusion, creating playlists on TikTok is a great way for content creators to group their videos into categories, making it easier for viewers to find relevant content and watch it in a series. By following the steps outlined above, creators can easily create playlists and increase engagement with their audience.
