How to Add Videos to Queue on YouTube

YouTube is one of the video-sharing and social media platforms where you not only upload and share the content but also listen to music videos.

But instead of every time searching and playing music videos one by one, you can create a playlist.

After making a list of videos you can play it without touching your computer. Thanks to the autoplay feature on YouTube. Especially when you are casting the video on other devices.

YouTube queue is the feature that helps you to achieve this mission. It is available on the desktop version only.
