Using Beatport Link playlists in Serato DJ Pro

Playlists can be created and edited via the Beatport website. Check out Beatport's Help Center here, or find out how to create a playlist with Beatport's How do I create playlists? article.

You can also create Beatport Link playlists from within Serato DJ Pro, which will also be reflected in your account on the Beatport Link website.

Click the New Streaming Playlist button to create a new Beatport Link playlist. You can add files to the playlist by dropping and dragging them onto the playlist, as you would do with regular Serato DJ Pro crates.
