SoundCloud is one of the best places to be if you’re a budding creator and want to access one of the biggest music libraries. You can create a SoundCloud playlist or multiple playlists to share with your followers and save the music you like.

However, there’s more to making a playlist here, so we’ll also tell you everything you need to know when you make a playlist on SoundCloud. Before we dive into how to create your playlists, here’s what else you should know.

Differences between SoundCloud public & private playlists

SoundCloud is a community where you can decide whether you want to share your playlists with your followers. SoundCloud lets you keep your playlist private or make it public. You can tweak these settings for each playlist and decide which ones to keep private and which to make public.

Also, remember only to add publicly available tracks to your public playlist. Artists can decide to keep their tracks private or public, so be mindful of this when choosing tracks for a playlist. You can also make the playlist public or private whenever you want.
