As soon as you update a playlist, it will automatically be updated with others who have added your playlist. New songs you add automatically appear in the playlist of everyone who has put the playlist in their library. Unfortunately, it is not possible to allow others to edit your playlist. So you can't work on a playlist with your partner, for example.
