Swiping through your phone's camera roll is undeniably an efficient way to look back on what you did over the last year, but music never fails to make me feel incredibly nostalgic. Sometimes, music almost acts as a time capsule, transporting listeners back to what they were doing or feeling when they first tuned in. And that's precisely why I love when Spotify unleashes its end-of-year feature, Spotify Wrapped.
If you've never used Spotify Wrapped, it enables users to peruse their favorite playlists, artists, and tunes from the last year. So if you're looking to experience a serious blast from the past, here's how you'll be able to find Spotify Wrapped 2019, to look back on the year in music.
Here's how to find Spotify wrapped:
Your personalized Spotify Wrapped information will show the artists, tracks, and albums you listened to most, as well as how many minutes of music you listened to, top podcast genres, and how many songs you "liked." You'll be able to access all of your personal Spotify Wrapped information as of Friday, Dec. 6, according to the music streaming service. And when it's officially available, accessing it will be incredibly easy.
You'll be able to get in on the fun by logging into Spotify in the app on mobile and tablet, and via the Spotify Wrapped website. Make sure you're logged into your Spotify account via online web player, and once you're in, you'll be able to see all of your music data from the last year. It's seriously cool, if you ask me. I mean, I won't be surprised when Beyoncé is my most-listened to artist for the fifth year in a row, but it's exciting nonetheless.
While your personal Spotify Wrapped data isn't available yet, they've unveiled the most popular music from the last year.
