How to Add, View, and Delete Watch Later on YouTube

You can add a YouTube video that you want to watch later to the “Watch Later” playlist.

You can add a video from anywhere on YouTube (such as Explore and search results) to your Watch Later playlist and remove it from the playlist anytime you like.

I use Windows 11 PC, Google Pixel 4a (Android 12), and iPhone X (iOS 15.3.1). Let’s begin with how to do these on PC.
