WHAT IS SPOTIFY WRAPPED?

Spotify Wrapped is described by Spotify as ‘a deep dive into the music and podcasts that defined your year’. 

It gives users visual charts of the music and podcasts that they’ve listened to the most annually.

Spotify Wrapped began in December 2016, and has been promoted by Spotify every year since.

Wrapped is simply a marketing campaign intended to promote Spotify, but it’s gained popularity among users who love to show off their fashionable tastes in music. 

Its release around the start of early December each year has correlated with a boost to Spotify’s app store ranking, so the Swedish streaming giant makes a big effort to add to the hype beforehand. 

HOW CAN I SHARE SPOTIFY WRAPPED?

Spotify’s Wrapped playlists are available to access here, and include ‘Your Top Songs 2022’ and ‘Your Artists Revealed’.

New tool creates a fantasy festival line-up based on Spotify history

Music fans are eagerly awaiting the imminent release of Spotify Wrapped, which reveals our most played artists of the year each December.

But to keep us going in the meantime, another tool has been released which is simultaneously getting us excited for the next festival season. 

The tool, called ‘Instafest’, generates your ultimate festival line-up by selecting your top artists from your Spotify listening history.

Created by A University of Southern California student, it presents your results in a Coachella-style poster with three hypothetical days of music.

Aside from the personalised Wrapped experience, Spotify unveils the top songs, albums, artists and podcasts around the world in 2022.   

Spotify Wrapped usually drops in the first couple of days of December, although this year it’s gone for the last day of November. 

The official Spotify Twitter account has already been teasing Wrapped’s release; on Sunday, Spotify posted: ‘Want to be the first to know when #SpotifyWrapped is here? Heart this tweet and we’ll remind you!’ 

HOW IS SPOTIFY WRAPPED CALCULATED?

Spotify Wrapped tracks users’ listening habits from the beginning of January to the end of October – meaning November is omitted.

Therefore, Wrapped doesn’t actually represent a whole year’s worth of stats, despite being touted as the ‘story of your year’. 

It also means that you can listen to embarrassing artists to your heart’s content in November, safe in the knowledge that it won’t affect your Wrapped results.  

For a song to have counted in your song rankings, you’ll have to have listened to it for more than 30 seconds.

What’s more, top songs are calculated by how many times they were played rather than total time listened.

WHICH SPOTIFY USERS GET WRAPPED?

Wrapped is available for both Free and Premium users, although Premium users get additional personalised data. 

Generally, the free version of Spotify includes multiple limitations, in an effort to get users to upgrade to Premium, which starts at £9.99 per month unless you’re a student. 

Most notably, unlike Premium, the free version has adverts and doesn’t let you download music to listen to offline. 

Also, the free version doesn’t let you select specific songs or play albums from start to finish – infuriating for genuine music lovers – and you can only skip six tracks per hour (with Premium, there’s no limit on how many tracks you can skip).
