The year is almost finished, and for most of the Spotify fanatics, this means only one thing: Spotify Wrapped is here!
In 2023, 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? What about your favorite podcast? It’s hard to imagine a year in which music wasn’t being made, and new podcasts haven’t been launched, 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 if 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, music genres, and podcasts 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.
This year, Spotify has come up with some interesting new features for Wrapped. When opening your Spotify Wrapped, you will have a city attached to your musical taste that better describes your musical preferences. Not just that, it also has a personalized video message from artists who are among your top 5 listeners. Spotify gathered 60,000 artists around the globe to record custom dedicated videos for fans that have them featured in their top listened-to artists of 2023.
Another cool new feature on Spotify Wrapped this year is 12 different characters and musical personality traits attached to your music listening habit.
To quote Spotify:“There’s something about this past year that felt especially chaotic with regards to how people consumed culture. We really wanted to acknowledge that feeling because it felt very accurate to 2023. Amidst all this, we realized that “your Wrapped doesn’t lie.” The data is real. And so we leaned into creating the realest Wrapped ever.” – Spotify’s Global Head of Marketing Experience, Louisa Ferguson.
