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

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

Who can make playlists on TikTok? Not everyone with a TikTok account can make 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 over 10,000 followers will be able to have access to the playlist feature on the social media app.

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

How to make playlists on TikTok

There are two ways to make a TikTok playlist out of your public content on TikTok.

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

  • Head to Profile at the bottom right
  • To make your first playlist, Go to Videos > Sort videos into playlists – alternatively, tap the + by your existing playlists
  • Give your playlist a name, and add videos

To create a playlist directly from a video on TikTok:

  • Choose the video you want to create a playlist from. It has to be a public video.
  • To the right of the video, hit the three-dot icon. Alternatively, press and hold on the video
  • Tap Add to playlist > Create a playlist
  • Give your playlist a name, and add videos

How to put TikTok videos into playlist

Now you’ve made the playlist, its time to add new videos – or make a playlist from existing videos. Each video can only be in one playlist at a time.

To add to playlist from a TikTok video:

  • Bring up the chosen video, which must be a public TikTok
  • Press and hold on the video, or hit the three dots to the right of the video
  • Tap Add to playlist and choose which playlist

To add to a playlist when first making a video:

  • After creating a video, tap Add to playlist on the Post screen. You’ll need to have made a playlist first, or the option won’t appear
  • Choose a playlist
  • Tap Post

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