1.  If you don't have one already, create a Youtube account.
2.  Download the Youtube app on your iPhone.
3.  Login with your account to Youtube on the app.
4.  Search for a song.
5.  Play the song.
6.  Tap the video while its playing.
7.  Click the icon that has a plus sign and hamburger icon.
8.  Add to Playlist.
9.  Create a new Playlist or add to an existing Playlist.
10.  When you're done following those steps 4 - 9 go to the Youtube Home page on the app.
11.  Click the Profile icon.
12.  Your Library of Playlists will be there.
13.  Click play.


PS Be aware that the when the phone sleeps Youtube turns off.  There used to be a work around to that but its gone now. :(


If you're looking for a decent alternative to listening to music, then the free version of Spotify gets my recommendation.  Unless you pay for Spotify Premium, you cannot select songs that you want to listen to immediately with the free version, but you can add your favorite songs to a playlist to listen to later.


Good Morning

          Thank you for your excellent feedback.  At this point, I would like to broaden the scope of this post with a follow up and related question.  Once the playlist is created within YouTube, how can I play all of the selected songs back contiguously?  Will YouTube have an integrated multimedia playback software or will a 3rd party program be needed?

That is a good question.  I recommend asking a new question and closing this one out.  Then you can link the new question to this one by posting the url.


Hi Kyle,

          Thank you for your easy to understand steps.  I will give this to my boss tomorrow morning.  In the meantime, I will post a new question regarding the necessary steps to take when it comes time to play each song within the playlist of YouTube back to back or contiguously.
