In 2022, did you find new ways to enjoy music? Was the year a good one for your favorite artists—or did some rising stars capture your attention and imagination? It’s hard to imagine a year in which music wasn’t being made, but it’s even harder not to be excited about the incredible artists who are coming up with new ways to bring us joy.
At the end of each year, Spotify gives users some interesting facts about our listening habits and stats on how we have used the music platform. This exciting feature is called Wrapped, which is widely shared by Spotify users on social media. You probably have seen it, but in case you don’t know what it is, this article will help you.
What is Spotify Wrapped?
If you love music, then you know that Spotify Wrapped is an annual celebration of the fantastic ways that music connects us all. If you don’t know what this annually launched Spotify feature is, which is long awaited by most of its users, then here is a quick explanation. Spotify Wrapped is a collection of numbers for all the songs, artists, albums, and genres you have listed throughout the year. Spotify shows you what you have listened to most during the year ending and prompts you with a nice presentation and fun facts about your listening taste for music or even podcasts. It’s also a helpful tool that allows us to reflect on the year that was and looks forward to what’s in store for the future. The best part of Wrapped is seeing how many people are listening, discovering new artists, and connecting over their shared love of music. It shows you in an Instagram stories format that you can share through your social media.
To quote Spotify:“We know that no two listeners are the same—so, from the oddly specific to the unapologetically predictable, 2022 Wrapped encourages listeners to peer into the vibrant kaleidoscope of their listening and show it off to the world.”
How to see Spotify Wrapped?
There are three ways to find and see your Spotify Wrapped:
- – The first and most straightforward way is when you open the Spotify app, and a banner about Spotify Wrapped is prominently displayed on your screen. You just need to tap on it, and the presentation for all your stats will start.
- – The second option is to go to the search tab, and it will be shown as one of the quick options on the screen.
- – The third option is to go to the browser on your phone and access the website www.spotify.com/wrapped and click on the banner there. If you have the Spotify app installed on your phone, it will open the application and start the Wrapped presentations.
More about Spotify Wrapped
This year Spotify has introduced a new feature called “Audio Day,” which breaks down how your listening habits change throughout the day. For this year’s Wrapped, Spotify launched “music personalities,” a Myers-Briggs style test that uses four-letter codes to categorize how people listen to music. Afterward, you’ll be assigned to a category including “Specialist,” “The Replayer,” “Early Adopter,” “Voyager,” “Adventurer,” or “Fanclubber.” Spotify will include messages from artists in its Wrapped mix, thanking fans for listening enough to get that artist on the list. Artists include Billie Eilish and Taylor Swift.
While Spotify Wrapped is available for anyone with an account, free or premium Spotify accounts, sometimes it can take time to find. For example, last year’s and this year’s 2022 edition of the playlist is only accessible on the mobile app, so if you go to spotify.com/wrapped like usual, you’ll be directed to either open the app or download it.
If you’ve logged in to the mobile app, your personalized look back at 2022 should appear on the home screen with a message that says “Your 2022 Wrapped is here!” under your six most recent listens.
After you click the message on your Spotify home screen, you’ll enjoy a fun flashback through all the music that defined 2022 for you.
Explore Wrapped and go beyond!
Once you open it, one of the cool things about the Wrapped is the option to create a special playlist with the top 100 songs played by you throughout the year. It’s an excellent way to make the year that it is ending stay in your memory and eternalize it in a playlist. More than that, you can even share that playlist with all your friends and social media followers by using the Tune My Music Share feature.
With Tune My Music Share, you can select the playlist specially created by Spotify just for you and generate a unique page. It’s a special page where you can add a name and a description and have people access it and even copy the playlists to their account no matter what music streaming service they use, Spotify, Apple Music, YouTube Music, Tidal, or others.
Now that you know what the Wrapped featured, go explore it. Play with it, and best of all, share with all your friends!
