Spotify's 2022 Wrapped will categorize your "music personality" based on your listening trends from the year. 


Spotify's 2022 Wrapped recaps launched Wednesday, revealing the latest of its annual digital experiences that dig through the data of your musical tastes for the year. 

This year's Wrapped includes new features like your Myers-Briggs-style "listening" personality type and a tracker of how your musical mood changes over the course of a day. As usual, Wrapped also sums up your own top artists, genres, songs and podcasts, plus total minutes listened on Spotify.

Wrapped is one of the streaming service's most popular features, as well as the hook for a major marketing campaign. Spotify itself is the world's biggest streaming music service by number of users, making its annual data recap one way to take the pulse of the world's listening habits.

This year's Wrapped recaps include: 

  • Your Listening Personality: Users get sorted into 16 music personalities -- like the Deep Diver, the Replayer, the Adventurer or the Fanclubber -- that describe your approach to listening. 
  • Audio Day: A progressive look at how your music habits evolve throughout the day, with Spotify defining your vibe for morning,  daytime and night. My morning mood, apparently, is "somber friendly," whatever that means.
  • Your Artist Messages: Expanding on a feature added last year, Spotify is dropping video cameos from top artists into the Wrapped experiences. Last year, Spotify had more than 100 artists record a thank-you message to fans. This year, more than 40,000 artists participated. If your own top artists include someone who recorded this kind of cameo, you should see one or more pop up in your Wrapped feed. 

Spotify also launched Wrapped "creator" experiences for artists and podcasters on the service, which are individualized microsites delving into how their fans listened over the year. 

All the ways to share your Wrapped on social networks are back, plus new social cards to share on WhatsApp and Line this year. Snapchat also has a personalized lens that reflects your assigned Listening Personality. 

How to watch (and rewatch) your Wrapped recap

Wrapped experiences are available only in Spotify's mobile app, for Android devices and Apple iPhones or iPads. Just make sure you have the latest version of the Spotify app downloaded, which is version 8.7.78.

The app will have multiple entry points to your Wrapped experience, including banners on the Home, Search and Library tabs, as well as a full "Your 2022 in Review" shelf on Home. 

If you aren't seeing prompts in the app to find it again, you can open your personal Wrapped by visiting this web page on your mobile device; the page should automatically open your Spotify app to the Wrapped experience. And you can simply search the Spotify mobile app for "2022 Wrapped" to find it again. 

If you still can't find your Wrapped at all, it's possible you haven't used Spotify enough to generate sufficient data to create a personalized recap. 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, sometime between Jan. 1 and early November. 

For those who did get a personalized Wrapped recap, it'll be available until Jan. 13.
