One of the best parts of being on Spotify is the end of the year when the app offers up a selection of your personal statistics. Spotify Wrapped is the streaming service’s recap of all the content you listened to over the year and while some folks might not like being reminded of what they listened to throughout the year, it’s a really cool summary presented in a “Stories” format. Hey, some folks might not like being reminded of all the depressing stuff they listened too, but reflection is good for the soul.
Spotify Wrapped is rolling out to everyone with the app and provides a comprehensive list of your listening habits. With break downs on which artists and songs you listened to most, how many new genres you discovered and even calculates how much of a fan you are. Sounds weird, but I’m proud to announced that I’m in the top 0.5% of Carley Rae Jepsen listeners on Spotify. Don’t want to brag or anything.
Spotify is all about those memories
Beyond the stats of your music, podcast fans can also learn a great deal about what they enjoyed most in 2020. Wrapped includes information on what shows you binging hardest, how many minutes were listened in total and obviously gives you a rundown of what shows you enjoyed most. Again, I don’t mean to brag but I ended up listening to podcasts for 128 813 hours this year. Such is the power of a nationwide lockdown, I suppose.
If you wanted to check out your Spotify Wrapped, make sure your app is updated. Once that’s been done, refresh your home page and you’ll see the banner shown off in impressive fashion. Or you can just open up the desktop app and it should be right there, boldly asking you to click it. You should do it, it’s a truly fun collection of information from an otherwise terrible year. Now’s as good a time as ever to get Spotify as the app is currently running it’s fantastic annual holiday offer.
