How to Share a Playlist on Apple Music Using iPhone in 2023

Making playlists is a great way to organise and listen to your music. Apple Music has good tools for making and organising playlists. You can also share your playlists with other people. Don’t know how? We’ll show you how to share a playlist on Apple Music in this article.

Sharing the link to your playlist with your friends or even on social media is pretty easy. Apple Music still doesn’t have a way for people to work together on playlists, but you can create and share an Apple Music profile to show off your library and what you’ve been listening to. We’ll also teach you how to do that. So, let’s get started.

Share a Playlist on Apple Music Using iPhone


Here’s how to share all of your Apple Music playlists. We’ve shown you how to use the Apple Music app on your phone, but the steps you need to take and the button you need to tap are pretty much the same on your Mac or on the Apple Music website.

Step 1: On the Home Screen of Apple Music, tap on the Library section and select Playlists.

Step 2: Now, select the Playlist that you want to share.

Step 3: After opening the playlist, tap on the three dots icon at the top right.

Step 4: You will find a list of actions. In that, tap on Share Playlist.

Step 5: You can now share your playlist across all your social media apps in different forms, or can just share the URL of the playlist via a text message.

Once your friend receives the link, they will be able to view the playlist in Apple Music.

That’s how you share an Apple Music playlist. When we did a comparison between Spotify and Apple Music, one feature that made Spotify stand out was the ability to collaborate on a playlist. However, Apple Music misses out on that, but there’s still a way in which you can connect with your friends and see what they listen to – by sharing your Profile.


We all have that one friend who has great taste in music. When they play their playlists out loud, one good song follows the next. If you are that friend and everyone is behind you for your playlists, here’s how you can create a profile in Apple Music and share your library.

Step 1: Open Apple Music and in the Listen Now tab, tap on the profile picture icon.

Step 2: Tap on the ‘Set up Profile’ option.

Step 3: Now, tap on Get Started.

Step 4: You now need to add details to your profile. Edit your Name, Username and also add a picture if you’d like.

Step 5: After adding the details, tap on ‘Continue to Find Contacts’.

Step 6: You will now see the list of your friends who have created a profile on Apple Music. You can follow them.

Step 7: Optional: Change who sees your Apple Music Profile. Once done, hit Next.

Choosing Everyone means that anyone can follow you. But if you choose “People you approve,” only those people will be able to follow you.

Step 10: Now, tap on your profile name.

Step 11: Tap on your friend’s profile to see what they are listening to and all of their visible playlists.

And that is how to share a playlist on Apple Music with your friends. However, if you still have more questions, take a look at our FAQ section below.
