This means not only can the apps offer music you like and might like, but they’re also able to tell you, with forensic detail, the songs you’ve played over the course of the year. However, each streaming service approaches this year-end roundup a little differently.
Spotify Wrapped will tell you the artists you’ve listened to the most.
Spotify’s annual roundup is called Spotify Wrapped and it is your own website— although it doesn’t really do much other than steer you towards the mobile apps. You need to launch the Spotify app for Android or iOS to get your listening history and see what music you’ve been focusing on for the year.
Open the mobile app and you may see your Spotify Wrapped right there on the Home form. If not, tap Researchand you should see 2022 Wrapped on the top. (You can run a search if it doesn’t appear right away.) You’ll see an animated slideshow with musical accompaniment, highlighting your favorite songs and genres, and even what types of songs you like at what times of day.
You’ll also see how many minutes of music you’ve listened to, what your most-played songs have been, and which artists you’ve kept coming back to. Spotify will even give you a “listening personality” and give you a summary of your habits that you can share. One tap and you can save a playlist of the songs you’ve listened to the most.
Apple Music shows how many minutes of music you’ve listened to.
On Apple Music, the year 2022 review feature is called Apple Music Replay. The best place to reach the highlights is Network– Sign in using your Apple ID credentials, then select To start and Play the highlight reel to see a musical tour through your listening habits of the past year.
The stats provided by Apple Music Replay are all pretty standard: the number of minutes you’ve spent listening to songs, the songs you’ve listened to the most, the artists you’ve listened to the most, and the genres that have caught your attention the most. Scroll down to see more information about your listening habits.
In the current Apple Music apps, for desktop and mobile, this highlight reel is actually not available, which seems strange. What will you find inside the apps, if you open the Listen now tab, is a playlist that collects a selection of your most played songs in the last year – you can choose to add it to your collection if you want to keep it.
You may be invited to see the 2022 recap as soon as you open YouTube Music.
YouTube Music calls its year-end listening digest Recap and if you open the app Network you should see a Recaps section. If it’s not there, click your profile picture (top right), then Your channel. You’ll see summaries for spring, summer, fall, and winter, as well as the entire year.
Your listening history is broken down into your favorite songs, artists and genres, and you also get a few other nuggets of information, like how many of your songs you come back and listen to again or which live versions you prefer. the year. You also get a playlist with your top 100 songs of the year.
Open the YouTube Music app for Android or iOS and the same summaries may appear on the Home tab. You can also tap your profile picture (top right) and select Your Channel to see summaries: Towards the end of the year, the Summary 2022 it should appear at the top of this page, so tap it and then Look now to see your year on YouTube Music.
Last.fm is able to track your listens across multiple services.
Other music services have their own digests and replays that you can access. If you use Deezer, for example, you can go to My Deezer year page on the web to see all your statistics for the last 12 months: among the information displayed are how many minutes of music you have listened to, how many artists you have listened to and where you stand in terms of listening habits in relation to the entire base Deezer users. These same details can also be accessed via the mobile apps.
Tidal hasn’t produced annual summaries for a while. You can open the web or mobile app to see your recent listening history and get some of your stats that way. Maybe it’s something Tidal will introduce in the future, but we haven’t seen anything for 2022.
Don’t forget Last.fm, which can track listening across a number of different streaming services (including Spotify, Apple Music and YouTube Music). You can visit the web portal to see a summary of your music habits for the last day, week, month or year at any time: the statistics are broken down by artists, albums and songs you’ve listened to and there are many details to dig into.
