If you’re interested in finding out how to see your Spotify Wrapped, how to share it with your friends, and how to save your top 100 songs, you’ve come to the right place. Continue reading to find out what’s new in this year’s edition of Spotify Wrapped.
What is Spotify Wrapped?
Spotify Wrapped is the roundup of the most popular artists, genres, and songs that Spotify users have been listening to in the past year. The very first version of Wrapped was made in 2016, and due to an overwhelmingly positive reception, the team at Spotify decided to turn it into an annual event.
Aside from showing you global statistics on Spotify users’ music streaming habits, it’s also a neat way to see how you, personally, stack up against the current trends in music. That’s the biggest allure of Spotify Wrapped - your personal story about your musical journey throughout the previous 12 months.
You get to see which songs you were listening to most on repeat, who your top five artists were, what your most listened-to genre was, and how many minutes of streaming content you’ve enjoyed over the year. This event quickly turned into a social phenomenon, as you can share your Spotify Wrapped playlist on various social networks.
Recently, Spotify also included your “listening personality” analysis. Its AI-powered algorithm takes into account your listening habits and puts you into one of several categories, explaining what defines you as a listener.
Lastly, you also get a playlist of your most listened-to songs, as well as several curated playlists of the hottest tracks and genres to listen to.
When is Spotify Wrapped Revealed?
The reveal of Spotify Wrapped is usually set for the first week of December. The official website will have an announcement that will show off that year’s design, but also what kind of lists and stats you can expect from the new edition.
For the 2022 Wrapped, users received teaser emails a few days prior to the announcement. Unlike the previous years, the team at Spotify didn’t wait for December to push the update. Instead, it launched the 2022 edition of Wrapped on November 30.
Spotify users have one full month to access their Spotify Wrapped and share their personal stats. They can also save any of the playlists, including their personalized playlist, so they can listen to them after the Wrapped season is over.
How To See Your Spotify Wrapped
It’s incredibly easy to access Spotify Wrapped and see all the information about your music taste, the time spent listening to your favorite songs, and your top artists.
Here’s a quick step-by-step guide to finding your Wrapped and saving the annual playlist:
- Open the Spotify App on your mobile device.
- Locate the banner that says “Your Wrapped is ready” and tap on it. Alternatively, access it from the Search screen.
- Browse through the Spotify Wrapped story. Every panel includes a Share button that lets you share that specific page across multiple social media websites.
- Once you reach the “Your top songs” page, tap the Add to Your Library button to save your personal top 100 songs, along with one extra song.
How To See Spotify Wrapped on Desktop
Most people prefer to use their smartphones for music streaming, and Spotify is a very mobile-oriented app. While the desktop version is quite functional, those who prefer using Spotify on their PCs will have a more limited Wrapped experience.
Specifically, you won’t get to see your top artists and songs in a handy recap. That’s all reserved for the Spotify mobile app, and there’s no sign that it’ll become available on browsers and the desktop app any time soon.
What you get, instead, is access to the global statistics on how the users of the world’s most popular music app have been interacting with it. You can, of course, access your Spotify Wrapped playlist, alongside several other playlists, including:
- Top Artists of 2022
- Top Tracks of 2022
- Top Groups of 2022
- Top Viral Hits of 2022
Then, there are several genre-specific playlists generated based on the users’ listening habits. If you’re a podcast fan, you’ll find the list of the most popular podcast episodes, as well as the most listened-to shows. Who knows, maybe you’ll find your new favorite podcast in one of these lists.
What’s Included in Spotify Wrapped 2022
Every year, there are some new twists on the Wrapped formula and a few surprises along the way. This year, for example, the personal Wrapped playlists had one extra song, along with a couple of interesting new additions.
Music lovers who can’t go a day without listening to some tunes will love what’s in store with this year’s Wrapped. Once you open the app, you’ll get to see the usual - your top artists, songs, and genres - but also several new Spotify Wrapped cards:
- Your audio day, listing genres and moods that make up your usual day.
- How many genres you’ve explored in the past year.
- Your listening personality, from one of 16 personality types.
Your Wrapped story can also display a special message from over 40,000 artists. This only pops up if you’re among the artist’s top listeners. Musicians like Harry Styles, Taylor Swift, Maneskin, and Billie Eilish have all recorded messages thanking their fans for their support.
Sharing Spotify Wrapped
Of course, you can’t really brag that you’re the biggest Swiftie if you couldn’t share it all over your socials. Previously, you would’ve had to screenshot the page and then manually upload it to your Instagram story, or transfer files to your computer so that you could embed them on your blog.
However, Spotify now allows you to share Spotify Wrapped with your friends and fans across a multitude of social networks, including TikTok, Snapchat, Instagram, Facebook, and Twitter. Even WhatsApp and Line are supported now, as more and more people want to check out each other’s Spotify stats and listening habits.
To share any of the pages from your Wrapped, all you have to do is tap the Share button on the bottom of the card you’d like to share. You’ll then be asked which app you’d like to post the story to. As for the Spotify Wrapped playlists, they can be shared either by sending a direct link or using the share feature from the playlist itself.
There are a few more Spotify Wrapped sharing options. If you’re a Snapchat user, you can enable a custom lens to reflect your musical personality, or you can get creative with the official GIFs through any platform that supports GIPHY.
Now that you know what Spotify Wrapped 2022 is, how to see your most streamed artist, top genres, top songs, and other statistics on this streaming platform, all that’s left is to fire up some tunes and prepare for next year's edition of Wrapped. The world of music streaming is only getting bigger, after all.
Frequently Asked Questions
Spotify users who haven’t engaged with the platform in the past year won’t get their personalized Wrapped lists. Additionally, you won’t see it if your Spotify app is out of date.
The most common reason for Wrapped not showing up on your Spotify homepage is an outdated app. Head to your preferred app store, update the Spotify app, and then restart it to see this year’s Wrapped. Another reason could be that the timeframe for viewing your Wrapped has passed, as it’s usually only available for a month after its release.
If you’re wondering how to see your Spotify Wrapped, all you have to do is open the app and tap on the Spotify Wrapped 2022 banner at the top of the screen. Alternatively, you can find the Wrapped 2022 button on the app’s Search screen.
