Apple Music collaborative playlists: How-to

For years, it’s been possible to share a playlist you’ve made on Apple Music with others. However, a new feature allows for shared, editable playlists in iOS 17.2. Here’s how to use Apple Music collaborative playlists.

Two new features come to Apple Music with iOS 17.2 (currently in beta) – collaborative playlists and a new automatic “Favorites” playlist.

To find the latter, you can head to Library > Playlists in Apple Music and swipe down to find the new auto-generated Favorites playlist.

While Spotify has often led Apple Music in terms of social features, it’s great to see collaborative playlists arrive with iOS 17.2, let’s dig into how they work.

iOS 17.2 is available now in beta – read more on how to install it for free on your device

  • Running the iOS 17.2 beta, open Apple Music on iPhone or iPad

  • Select a playlist that you’ve created (or create a new one – this does not work for now with Apple Music’s playlists that you’ve saved)
  • Tap the … icon in the top right corner
  • Now choose Collaborate (second from the top)
  • You can choose if collaborators need to be approved or not
  • Tap Start Collaboration to invite people
  • You can head back to the playlist and tap the … icon to get the Manage Collaboration option

Here’s how the process looks to use Apple Music collaborative playlists on iPhone:
