While TikTok has been around for a couple of years, it’s still one of the younger social media platforms out there. Because of this, TikTok is constantly releasing new features to make the app better for its hundreds of millions of users all over the world.

One of these features is the TikTok playlist. Certain creators on the platform can create playlists of their own videos to curate their own videos. That way, you compile videos that are part of a series, create a playlist of your comedic skits, and just arrange your videos in a neater and more organized manner.

Since this is a new feature, most people don’t know how to use it.

What Are TikTok Playlists?

TikTok playlists are basically a collection of different video clips. Similar to YouTube playlists, they help creators organize their content to make it easier for viewers to binge their videos. This feature was initially released for a select few creators, but now most business and creator accounts can make their own TikTok playlists.

You can make various playlists on your TikTok profile. For example, if you have dance, comedy, entertainment, and education videos on your account, you can create a separate playlist for each category. That way, people who visit your profile have an easy way of bringing the videos that they actually want to watch.

How to Make a Playlist on TikTok

Keep in mind that the playlist feature isn’t available to all TikTok users. So, if you don’t have the option available for you, it’s best to wait until TikTok rolls the feature out for everyone. But for now, only creators and business accounts can make TikTok playlists.

If you want to create a TikTok playlist for your own account, there are two ways to do it. And in this section, we’ll explain both methods in full detail to give you an easier time creating a playlist if you wanted to.

From Your Profile

The first way to make a TikTok playlist is through your profile. To go to your profile, open the app and click the profile icon on the bottom right corner of the screen. Then, look for the video tab and tap the sort videos into a playlist option. If this feature is available for you, then you should be able to see the option, if it isn’t, then you can’t make a playlist yet.

If it isn’t your first time making a playlist, you won’t have this option. Instead, you will see a plus sign next to your existing playlists, which you need to tap. From there, a prompt will pop out that requires you to name your playlist and select the videos you want to include in the playlist.

After choosing the videos and naming your playlist, you’re about done. After that, people who visit your profile should be able to see the playlist among your other videos.

From Your Videos

If you have a published video you want to make a playlist from, then you can go to the video itself. From there, you need to tap on the three dots on the right, which should cause a menu to pop out. If the feature is available for you, you should see an add-to-playlist option. Then, tap on that, and from there, you can either add it to an existing playlist or create a new playlist.

For certain creators, the option for playlisting a video can pop up when posting the video. Before you publish a video, you might be able to see an addition to the playlist option. That way, your video is automatically a part of a playlist the second you upload it.

Can Anyone Make a TikTok Playlist?

As of now, the TikTok playlist feature is only available for certain creators. Like many other TikTok features, only creator and business accounts can make a TikTok playlist. Initially, this feature was only available to a selected few creators but eventually, TikTok rolled it out for any account that meets their criteria.

Remember, this feature is designed for creators that have an established audience. So, if you want to make a TikTok playlist, you have to make sure you have a public creator profile. If you have a private account, you won’t be able to make a TikTok playlist.

In the beginning, TikTok didn’t release the requirements for creators who wanted to make a TikTok playlist. But recently, they have released the requirements, which state that if you want to make a playlist on TikTok, you need at least 10,000 followers.

For people starting out on the platform, this is quite a challenging requirement to meet. Growing a TikTok following is hard, which is why it’s necessary to understand the proper techniques regarding posting content and marketing your brand on the platform. And as long as you put the time and effort into creating high-quality and consistent content, you’ll find yourself at the 10,000 follower mark in no time.

Why Make a TikTok Playlist?

TikTok playlists are great for putting similar videos all in one place. This will ultimately make your followers’ lives much easier as they can go to the playlist they are interested in and only watch videos relevant to the playlist.

On top of that, playlists are also a great way to push relevant content that didn’t quite get the recognition you wanted it to, allowing you to get that extra bit of attention and engagement.


If you want to make a TikTok playlist, you need to make sure that you meet the requirements. Currently, TikTok only allows people with 10,000 or more followers to create a playlist.

But if you meet the requirements, then you can either make a playlist through your videos or on your profile. That way, your audience has a much easier time finding and binge-watching your videos, which will do wonders for your engagement and reach.
