Why YouTube Playlists Are Useful
Playlists on YouTube are an underutilized yet potentially powerful tool for video creators. Creating a playlist is a simple way to get more eyes on your videos — and keep people watching — with minimal effort on your part. YouTube playlists are collections of videos that automatically play in order. Playlists are typically composed of similar or related videos on a particular subject, like this collection of puppy videos , or this one on easy-to-learn rock guitar riffs. As a viewer on YouTube, playlists are a good way to organize your favorite videos for yourself or to share with others.

In the information age, YouTube has put everything from trending tunes to industry-leading thought leaders right at your fingertips. But as a marketer and brand builder, did you know you can use YouTube playlists as a customer engagement tool? A YouTube playlist is a collection of videos that play in order, one after another, automatically. Think of it as a music playlist you might create on Spotify or Apple Music, but for videos. When one video finishes up, the next one in the queue comes on screen without the user taking action. And just like music playlists, you can shuffle YouTube playlists to keep things fresh. YouTube playlists come in all shapes and sizes.
Playlists are a fantastic YouTube tool that not enough video creators and video viewers take advantage of. A playlist in YouTube is a list, or group, of videos that plays in order, one video after the other. Playlists are usually grouped by subject, such as this playlist about elephants or this playlist of Lady Gaga videos. However, you can create a playlist of any videos you want, related or not, to share with your friends, your fans or just to keep track of your favorite videos for yourself.

There are several reasons to create playlists. Some of them apply to viewers, and others apply to video creators with YouTube channels. As a YouTube viewer playlists can be a helpful way to organize and keep track of your favorite videos.
