How to Bulk Delete All Youtube’s Watch Later Videos

Have you ever wanted to delete all of your videos from Youtube’s “Watch Later” list? If so, this is the guide for you!

Youtube has a ‘watch later’ feature which saves the videos to your Youtube account and allows you to watch them at a later date. However, what if you want to get rid of all of those saved videos and free up some space on your Youtube account? Well, luckily there is an easy way that lets you do just that – bulk deleting all of them in one go using this simple tutorial.

So let’s get started!

Scripts to Remove All Watch Later Videos

This tutorial requires you to use Google Chrome. Other web browsers like Brave, Edge which use the WebKit framework can also be used.

Firstly, you need to access Your Youtube account’s Watch Later list. It can be accessed via Youtube’s drawer navigation or via https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=WL.

Open DevTools by pressing F12 then switch tab to Console.

Paste one of the 2 following scripts (only one can work with your Youtube) to the Console and press Enter:

setInterval(function() {
	document.querySelector('#contents button[aria-label="Action menu"]').click();
	var things = document.evaluate('//span[contains(text(),"Watch later")]',document,null,XPathResult.ORDERED_NODE_SNAPSHOT_TYPE,null);
		for (var i = 0; i < things.snapshotLength; i++) {
		    things.snapshotItem(i).click();
		}		
}, 1000);
setInterval(function() {
	document.querySelector('#primary button[aria-label="Action menu"]').click();
	var things = document.evaluate('//span[contains(text(),"Watch later")]',document,null,XPathResult.ORDERED_NODE_SNAPSHOT_TYPE,null);
		for (var i = 0; i < things.snapshotLength; i++) {
		    things.snapshotItem(i).click();
		}		
}, 1000);

It depends on your Youtube, one script can work for you.

Then what you have to do next is to wait for the script to delete the videos one by one.
