  • Go to your Songs list
  • Click the Select icon, circle with lines, at the bottom of the screen. This should activate checkboxes next to every song.
  • Choose the songs to become a playlist
  • Click the '...' icon at the bottom of the screen then choose "add to now playing"
  • From the playback screen (or whatever it's called) click the '...' icon then choose "save as playlist". You can     then name the playlist and it will appear on the playlist screen.

Re: How to create Playlists on Lumia 920

Thanks Gary for your reply, But its all hell process. previously i have samsung galaxy phone its very easy to create playlists of songs that i like. Nokia or windows sucks..... i am getting all unwanted songs when i added songs to add now playing and worst thing is i cannot delete unwanted songs from the playlist. Its all mess. and the worst thing is the volume control it is same for music and ringtone, if we reduce the sound while listening to songs it reduces the volume of the phone ringtone which leads to missed calls.:confused:

Actually, you have to play a song, then go to the history to play it again, then do the above mentioned procedure. Otherwise you will get all the songs in the playlist. Windows phone sucks. The worst part is them never fix your problems.

Re: How to create Playlists on Lumia 920

After reading grschinon's link, I think I finally got a hang of it. It's all about the now playing list. You can see it by touching the song name in the playback sceen. Then you can see which songs are in your list you are about to create. The now play list depends on where you start the music. For example, if you start from all the songs, then it includes all the songs. If you start from the history, it only includes the current song. So you can create a playlist include any song you want.

Re: How to create Playlists on Lumia 920

Hmm........ To create a simple play list i have to move the screens and search for the songs if they all are the songs i wanted to add to the play list. I need to multitask for creating single playlist:thumbdown: And if i wanted to edit the created playlist there is no option to Edit.

Re: How to create Playlists on Lumia 920

I am upset with Nokia about the playlist making as well. They should make it to where we are able to select songs and make a playlist from them. Also, I would like to be able to edit a playlist. Hopefully they can make some sort of update to change that.

Re: How to create Playlists on Lumia 920

In an earlier post in this thread I described how to create a playlist using the phone. Here is how to do it using windows explorer with the phone connected to the PC.

Re: How to create Playlists on Lumia 920

That neat but you still need a PC. Most users want to create and edit playlists right on the phone itself. Why does Microsoft make it so difficult? WP8 is already the 3rd major version and the difficulty still persist.

Re: How to create Playlists on Lumia 920

Thanks for your research...:thumbup: but still if you want to edit the created playlist there is no option. That sucks, we need some other apps or a laptop to create or edit playlist which means its not a smart phone we can rate it as  number one dummy phone in the world.....:smileyhappy:

Re: How to create Playlists on Lumia 920

It seems so simple on SG and Iphone - just select the album, song, artist or genre; then send to new or created playlist. No multiscreen tasking, wondering where to go and what's happening and very confusing way as Nokia W8. I hope Nokia are listening and correct this as its a very awkward and silly way of doing something easy.

Re: How to create Playlists on Lumia 920

The only way is to do it on the PC.


  
 Make a playlist on your phone. Start an album or song playing. Below the album art tap the song name. On the next page tap the save icon on bottom and give your playlist a name. Stop the player
 
 Connect the phone via USB to the PC.
 
 With windows explorer open the music, playlist folder.
 
 Right click the playlist file, select properties, resources tab.
 
 You can now, add to the playlist from songs on your phone using drag and drop into the resources tab window.
 
 From the recources tab window you can also delete songs from the playlist and set the play order.
