How to Create Music Playlists on Your Android Tablet

The Play Music app on your Android tablet features two “auto” playlists — one for the last songs you’ve added and another for free and purchased songs. Beyond that, the playlists you see are those you create. Here’s how it works:

  1. Locate some music you want to add to a playlist.

  2. Touch the Action Overflow icon by the album or song.

  3. Choose the Add to Playlist command.

    Ensure that you’re viewing a song or an album; otherwise, the Add to Playlist command doesn’t show up.

  4. Choose an existing playlist or, to create a new playlist, choose New Playlist.

    If you choose to create a new playlist, type a name for the playlist and touch the OK button.

The song or album is added to the playlist you selected, or it’s placed into a new playlist you created. You can continue to add songs to the playlist by repeating Steps 1 through 3.

  • 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 icon by the song. Choose Remove from Playlist.

  • Removing a song from a playlist doesn’t delete the song from the 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 Action Overflow icon in the Playlist icon’s lower right corner. Choose the Delete command. Touch OK to confirm.
