What is Spotify Wrapped? Spotify’s yearly recap explained

We’re coming up to the end of 2023, which means it’s time for us all to expose our listening habits with Spotify Wrapped. 

Wrapped has become one of the most anticipated events of the year by revealing the artists and tracks we proudly streamed over the last 365 days, along with the songs we’d rather not admit we have on our playlists. 

Regardless of whether or not you plan to share your Wrapped results on Instagram and Twitter, it’s always interesting to discover what your top streaming track was and there are a handful of exciting new features coming this year, too. 

Read on to learn everything you need to know about this year’s Spotify Wrapped, including what Wrapped actually is and when you’ll get your results. 

What is Spotify Wrapped? 

Wrapped is Spotify’s annual recap of your listening activity, covering both music and podcasts. It’s personalised to you and usually includes interactive elements like polls, quizzes and filters. 

The 2022 Wrapped included familiar stats, including your top artists, songs, genres, podcasts and minutes listened plus the 2022 in review playlist filled with your most-streamed songs. It also included, for the first time, Your Listening Personality, a feature that analysed your listening habits and the way you discover and consume music and assigns you one of 16 different Listening Personality types.

The other big new feature was Audio Day, which offered further insight into how your music taste evolves from morning to daytime to night. 

How Spotify will differentiate this in 2023 remains to be seen.

When will I get my Spotify Wrapped? 

In 2022, Spotify Wrapped began rolling out on iOS and Android devices on November 30. There is no confirmed date for when the 2023 version will arrive.

Is Spotify Wrapped only for Premium users? 

No, both free and Premium users can access their Spotify Wrapped results as long as they have the smartphone app.
