How to Create Music Playlists on Your Android Tablet

Making a new playlist for the music on your Android tablet is easy, and adding songs to the playlist is even easier. Follow these steps:

  1. Choose the Playlist category in the Play Music app.

  2. Touch the Menu icon in the upper-right corner of the screen.

  3. Choose New Playlist.

  4. Type a name for your playlist.

    Short and descriptive names are best.

  5. Touch the OK button to create the playlist.

    The new playlist is created and placed on the Playlists screen.

But the playlist is empty! To add songs, you need to go out and fetch them. Here’s how you do that:

  1. Hunt down the song you want to add to a playlist.

    You don’t need to play the song; simply display the song in the Play Music app.

    Likewise, you can hunt down albums, artists, or even genres. The technique described in this set of steps works for every category in the Play Music app.

  2. Touch the menu triangle by the song (or album or artist).

  3. Choose the command Add to Playlist.

  4. Choose a playlist.

    The song (or album or artist) is added to the playlist’s repertoire of music.

Repeat this set of steps to continue adding songs to playlists.

You can have as many playlists as you like on the tablet and stick as many songs as you like in them. Adding songs to a playlist doesn’t noticeably affect the tablet’s storage capacity.

  • To remove a song from a playlist, open the playlist and touch the menu triangle by the song. Choose the command Remove from Playlist.

  • Removing a song from a playlist doesn’t delete the song from your tablet’s music library.

  • Songs in a playlist can be rearranged: While viewing the playlist, use the tab on the far left end of a song title to drag that song up or down in the list.

  • To delete a playlist, touch the menu triangle in the playlist icon’s lower-right corner. Choose the Delete command. Touch OK to confirm.
