Whether you're a TikTok creator or just an idle viewer, you may have noticed that some videos can be watched as Playlists and a portion of TikTokers has Playlists on their profile pages.

If you want to know how to make a Playlist on TikTok, how many followers you need to create one, and how to watch TikTok videos as a Playlist, don't close this page, since we're about to begin.

What is a Playlist on TikTok?

TikTok Playlists are basically collections that help creators organise their content bound with one theme and let TikTok users watch thematic content conveniently organised. Users can find Playlists on the profile page of a creator and watch it from here.

If a user finds your video from the For You page or the discover section, they can also head directly to the playlist, since each video within a Playlist has a link to the full Playlist.

How many followers do you need to make a Playlist on TikTok?

According to the official page in the TikTok Help Centre, the Playlist feature is available to creators with over 10,000 followers on TikTok.

As of writing, just a few select creators and businesses can create Playlists on TikTok.

How to make a Playlist on TikTok

There are two ways of doing so: right from your profile and from a video. You can make as many Playlists as you’d like.

How to make a TikTok Playlist from your profile

  1. Open the TikTok app and tap your Profile icon.
  2. In the Video tab, if it's your first playlist, tap on "Sort videos into playlists." Otherwise, if you have already created a playlist, tap the plus icon next to your existing playlist.
  3. You'll be prompted to give your playlist a name and then select the videos you want to include in it.

How to make a TikTok Playlist directly from a video

  2. Tap the three-dot icon on the right side of the video, or press and hold the video.
  3. Select "Add to playlist" and then tap "Create a playlist."
  4. You'll then be prompted to name your playlist and add more videos to it.

Additionally, you can add a video directly to TikTok playlists when you publish it.

To add a video to your TikTok Playlist, follow these steps:

  2. Below the selected video, click on 'Share' on the right side or tap and hold the screen.
