How To Utilize Spotify Wrapped 2022 As A Musician?

Share With

The time has come! Spotify Wrapped will now let you see a "snapshot" of your entire year! We all eagerly await the announcement of the music we've been listening to during the previous year.

As Spotify Wrapped summarizes your musical year, it shares your favorite musicians, tracks, genres, artists to explore, and even your moods.

Thousands of people share their "Wrapped" every year in what started as a viral marketing campaign in 2016 and has since grown into a significant event for music lovers and social media users.

When Will Spotify Wrapped 2022 Be Released?

Launching a website promoting the feature and making a data-sharing hint: 

“Wrapped is a deep dive into the music and podcasts that defined your 2022. Keep listening to what you love, and we’ll shout when it’s ready.”

Spotify discontinued the function in recent years at the beginning of December; in 2021 it was done so on December 1 and 2020 on December 2. Consequently, it won't be long before you may hear how your music is summarized in 2022.

How To Access Spotify Wrapped 2022

Your Spotify Wrapped 2022 can be accessed here. Additionally, it will be shown on your homepage, and you'll probably get a notification when it's prepared for viewing.

Why The Last Two Months Of The Year Are Not Included In Spotify Wrapped 2022 Results?

The last two months of the year are not tracked for Wrapped, as Spotify previously said on Twitter, saying:

“We’re afraid that listening to a bunch of stuff right now will not make any difference to this year’s or next year’s Spotify Wrapped. This is because it only covers from January 1 to October 31. Hope this clears things up.”

Although they have not yet provided a concrete explanation, many believe it is because it is the holiday season and people begin to play Christmas music nonstop as soon as Halloween is over. 

Others believe it is simply because the company wants to give themselves enough time to get the app and your results ready for the end of the year.

A Complete Checklist Of Actions You Should Take Now
