It's December, which means your friends, family and everyone in between will begin sharing their end-of-the-year music recap on social media, thanks to Spotify Wrapped. If you use other streaming services, though, you can still share your music listening history for the year. That includes top songs, artists and albums in a series of colorful visuals specifically designed for social media.
If you're subscribed to Apple Music, YouTube Music or Tidal, we'll show you how to find your platform's version of Wrapped 2021.

How to get Apple Music 2021 Replay
Similar to Spotify Wrapped, Apple Music has a feature called 2021 Replay that lets you see your most-played songs, artists and albums, and get a playlist of your top songs of the year. Technically, you can access your Replay at any point during the year, not just in December. Here's how to find it:
- Go to replay.music.apple.com, and sign in with the same Apple ID you use with your Apple Music subscription.
- Click Get Your Replay Mix.
Alternatively, you can open your Apple Music app and scroll to the bottom of the Listen Now page. You'll find your 2021 Replay along with one for every other year you've used the service.
It should be noted that if you open the Replay link on your iPhone, you'll be redirected to your 2021 Replay playlist in the Music app, which features your 100 most-streamed songs. If you want to view more information, like how long you listened to music for the entire year, you'll have to visit the 2021 Replay website on your desktop.
See your 2021 Recap on YouTube Music
YouTube Music's version of Spotify Wrapped is called 2021 Recap, which shows your top artists, songs, music videos and playlists from this year.
The Recap landing page appears on the YouTube Music app, where you can scroll to see personalized stats. You'll have the option to listen to your favorite picks of the year in a playlist, and you can also share that playlist by tapping the arrow at the bottom of the stats card.
The YouTube 2021 Recap launched on Dec. 6. In previous years, YouTube Music has rolled out a Year in Review playlist highlighting users' most-streamed songs and artists, but it wasn't available to everyone.

Tidal 2021 Rewind: What to do
Tidal's version of Spotify Wrapped is called My 2021 Rewind. It highlights your mos- listened-to songs and artists of the year and of each month through a playlist and shareable graphic for social media. Last year the 2020 Rewind feature appeared on Dec. 1, so you should expect to see 2021 Rewind very soon. Once it does arrive, open the Tidal app or go to the homepage on desktop and you should see My 2021 Rewind.
