YouTube is the largest video sharing platform: every day, more than 4 billion videos are viewed there! In order not to get lost, the service provides valuable tools. Among them, there are playlists, which allow each user to compile videos by theme.



Playlists can be a way to organize the videos you want to watch. The "Watch Later" list, for example, is perfect for storing content that you haven't had time to watch yet. But playlists are also an excellent tool for organizing your own channel. The content thus gains in clarity and visibility in the eyes of the spectators. Perfect for gaining popularity on such a competitive platform! It interests you ? We explain how to use playlists in a simple and effective way in this tutorial.

In the proposed list, you can also opt for the playlist natively installed on your account, named "To watch later". If you want to know how to organize this list, do not hesitate to consult the tutorial dedicated to it.
