More users can now create TikTok playlists from their videos! Read on to learn how to create playlists on TikTok.

TikTok has announced that more users will be able to choose from their videos and use the TikTok playlist feature on their profiles.

Who can create playlists on TikTok? Not everyone with a TikTok account can create a playlist of their videos. But if you can see the option on your profile under the video tab, you’re one of the chosen ones!

TikTok recently announced that creators with more than 10,000 followers will be able to access the playlist feature on the social media app.

Creating a playlist of your videos on TikTok keeps viewers locked into your profile for longer. Artists could show off more of their music and expand their engagement beyond any TikToks that may have gone viral.


How to Create Playlists on TikTok

There are two ways to create a TikTok playlist from your public content on TikTok.

To create a playlist from your profile on the TikTok app:

  • Head toward Profile at the bottom right
  • To create your first playlist, go to Videos > Sort videos into playlists – alternatively, press the + by your existing playlists
  • Name your playlist and add videos

To create a playlist directly from a video on TikTok:

  • Choose the video from which you want to create a playlist. This must be a public video.
  • To the right of the video, tap the three-dot icon. You can also long press on the video
  • Faucet Add to playlist > Create a playlist
  • Name your playlist and add videos

How to Put TikTok Videos in a Playlist

Now that you’ve created the playlist, it’s time to add new videos or create a playlist from existing videos. Each video can only be in one playlist at a time.

To add to playlist from a TikTok video:

  • Display the chosen video, which must be a public TikTok
  • Long press on the video or tap on the three dots to the right of the video
  • Faucet Add to playlist and choose which playlist

To add to a playlist when first creating a video:

  • After creating a video, tap Add to playlist on the Job filter. You will need to create a playlist first, otherwise the option will not appear
  • Choose a playlist
  • Faucet Job

Along with longer runtimes for creating videos, playlists are another way TikTok is competing with YouTube, aiming to become the most popular video platform.
