Shortcut Information

Use this shortcut to list all of the playlist links or IDs for anything you want to open on YouTube – the data will be pulled from other shortcuts and used to populate menus of URLs to select from and
open in the YouTube app.

This shortcut allows you to keep one list of all of your YouTube playlists in one place, rather than keeping the individual playlists in separate shortcuts that required updating or duplicating across areas.

This works with the playlist ID, full playlist link, or even a link from a video that’s being played inside a playlist – the other shortcuts will account for the value type and open the proper playlist link automatically.

Find your YouTube playlist links in your Library tab – however, links aren’t provided in the app, so you’ll have to use the web; use my Show YouTube Library shortcut to open it directly.

Use the Grab YouTube Playlist ID shortcut to isolate the unique identifier for your playlists from the URL, or use Copy YouTube Playlist Link for video-in-playlists links.
