Certain creators on TikTok are able to create playlists out of their own videos and display them on their profile page. Here’s how to do it.

As more creators find that TikTok is becoming their primary content hub, the company has been hard at work introducing new features that allow TikTokers to streamline their content for their audience.

With features like the Pro Account helping creators track their analytics, it’s clear that content creators are a big focus for the platform. Some creators are even able to curate playlists on their profile, making it easier for audiences to consume their content.

What is the Creator Playlist feature on TikTok?

As the name suggests, the Creator Playlist feature gives TikTokers the option to categorize their content. This has proven to be hugely beneficial for TikTokers who post series that consist of multiple videos, as it will help viewers track down other parts of a wider project if they stumble across it on their FYP.

The playlists appear on the TikTok user’s profile page above the videos, and they can also be accessed by tapping on the yellow tag on any video that is part of a playlist.

Currently, users are only able to put public videos into playlists.
