Leveraging your personal data to recap your musical tastes for the year, Spotify’s Wrapped 2022 experiences are ready to hit you at a moment’s notice.
Every year Spotify puts a new spin on its review of your listening. Last year’s Wrapped included new features like guessing your “audio aura,” playing “two truths and a lie” with your 2021 trends, and becoming the hero of your own movie soundtrack. And typically, each year’s Wrapped experience rounds up your top artists, genres, songs, and podcasts, plus total minutes listened to on Spotify.
If you’re worried that Wrapped might reveal some embarrassing guilty pleasure tracks it repeated this year, sorry, it’s too late to sway your personal rankings now—experiences typically count data from January 1 through October 31.
Wrapped is one of Spotify’s most popular personalization features, as well as the hook for the company’s biggest marketing campaigns of the year. Spotify itself is the world’s largest music streaming service by number of users, and its annual roundup of data provides a pulse of the world’s listening habits.
When will Spotify Wrapped 2022 launch?
Spotify has yet to announce a release date for Wrapped this year.
In previous years, Wrapped experiences launched in early December, typically on a Wednesday or Thursday. But the dates move forward each year: Wrapped was released on December 6, 2017 and 2018, December 5, 2019, December 2, 2020, and December 1 of last year. Based on its trends, it’s fair to expect Wrapped to be available this week or next.
How to find your Wrapped experience (once it’s active)
Once Spotify launches Wrapped 2022 experiences, they are generally only available on the Spotify mobile app for Android mobile devices or Apple iPhone or iPad.
Spotify’s Android and iOS mobile apps from last year had ads for Wrapped near the top of the Home tab, where you can enter your custom Wrapped. You can also visit spotify.com/wrapped using your Apple or Android mobile device, which has a deep-linked button that takes you to your Wrapped experience in the app. If you see a button that says “download the app,” click it even if you’ve already installed the app on your device. (The button link will simply open the app where you want it to be, or it can prompt you to update the app if you haven’t in a while.)
If the experiences have launched and you still can’t find your Wrapped, you may not have used Spotify long enough to generate enough data to create a personalized experience. For users to be eligible for Wrapped, they must stream at least 30 tracks for more than 30 seconds, as well as stream at least five artists.
