How to Delete a Playlist on YouTube


The YouTube website has been the home for all of your favourite music videos, TV and movie clips, vlogger videos, and more since it was launched in 2005. Many YouTube users often take advantage of the site’s playlist function, which allows you to save videos in curated groupings to watch at a later time. The playlists may either be kept private or made available to the entire world to view.

And, as simple as it is to make YouTube playlists, it is just as simple to remove them from your account. Removing a playlist from the site and from your account is a quick and uncomplicated process if you have decided that you no longer desire the playlist.

But keep in mind that once you remove a playlist, there is no way to recover it. If you delete a playlist and then decide that you made a mistake, you’ll have to create a new playlist and manually add all of your films back into it. Find out how to remove a playlist on your PC or on the mobile app for your smartphone in the following guide.
