Music Playlist Manager,

the most versatile playlist manager on the android market.

Important Note:

In general, Playlists have been  deprecated in Android 12 (S) API level 31.
Google will keep the current functionality for compatibility reasons,
but will no longer take feature request.

 if you have Poweramp installed, then there is no issue as playlists are held in Poweramp, not android.

M3U files can be also used as an alternative.

No other Playlist Manager offers as many features as Music Playlist Manager and a "must have" as a Poweramp companion app.

Especially for all Poweramp users worried about losing their track ratings , update the ID3V2 POPM (Popularimeter) tag of mp3 tracks on a playlist. A simple click will update the ID3V2 POPM tag with "Rating" and "Times Played", as found in Poweramp, on the actual mp3 track. Even when migrating to another device, you will not lose these settings and you can then reinstate your ratings by importing them from your ID3v2 tags.

Export and Import your Poweramp Ratings

There are many posts on the Poweramp forum from users who have lost all their song ratings when they moved to a new phone or when their device was upgraded.

Music Playlist Manager is able to back up your Poweramp ratings and once you have upgraded or moved to another phone, can re-import them such that all your tracks are updated again with your original ratings.

Note that Poweramp itself will export ratings in its .m3u playlists but the drawaback of this is that it only applies to a playlist, not the whole music collection.
