The snapshot of your whole year in music is here. After months of buildup, Spotify is giving music fans their personalised Spotify Wrapped playlist.
Spotify Wrapped is described by Spotify as “a deep dive into the music and podcasts that defined your 2022”. It began as a viral marketing campaign and is now a feature that Spotify users around the globe look forward to each year, many sharing the results with friends and family to compare musical tastes.
Developed by Aura experts at Spotify, and powered by AI, it showcases your top music moods, genre-listening habits, five most-streamed artists and a blended playlist of your best 100 songs for the whole year.
Here is everything else you need to know about the fun feature.
When will Spotify Wrapped 2022 be available?
Spotify Wrapped 2022 is available now on the Spotify app for iOS and Android.
The feature is available as part of an update to the Spotify app (version 8.7.78), so make sure you manually download it if you don’t have automatic updates enabled on your phone.
How do I access my Spotify Wrapped?
If you have subscribed to Spotify, it tracks your listening habits from January 1 to October 31 every year. That means you’ll need to generate your account before November 1 and listen to music for at least 60 minutes. You won’t see Spotify Wrapped if your account is too new or you don’t have enough listening time on your account, unfortunately.
When you open the Spotify app, on the home screen, tap on the Your 2022 Wrapped banner to access your Wrapped playlist. If you do not see it, type Wrapped in the search bar to view the banner. Click the banner and you’ll be directed to Spotify Wrapped Story. There, you can see your customised stats. If you want to share the data to other social-media platforms for family and friends to see, just click on the Share this story button.
