Social media is designed for oversharing. Whether it's fabulous pictures of your vacations or your thoughts on the current political administration, social media is tailor-made to get people to express their thoughts at the touch of a virtual button. And because everyone secretly thinks that their personal taste is so wonderful, Spotify makes it easy for folks to post their "Wrapped" year-end music review.

But many users of the popular app are asking: Why doesn't Spotify Wrapped work for me?

Why does my Spotify Wrapped not work?

Now that it's confirmed that Spotify Wrapped 2023 has officially launched, there are some folks claiming that the feature is not working. And unfortunately, it may be that the latest version of the app is not installed on your device.

Per RobotPoweredHome, the easiest way to update your Spotify app is for Apple users to open the App Store, enter Spotify in the search bar, and select the update button. Android users should open the PlayStore app and proceed to search for Spotify (and select update if available).

Remember, it's often best to set up your phone to auto-update to avoid the process of manually updating.

But there's big news for Spotify Wrapped fans, as this year you can also view the feature on your desktop in addition to mobile.

Whether you're on your computer, tablet, or phone, just make sure that you're logged into your Spotify profile and aren't just using the application as a guest. After all, you want the correct information so you can flex your list on social media.

If you're still encountering issues, simply bring it back to the basics. Try logging out of the application and logging back in, clear the data cache, or uninstall the application and re-install it. From there, you should be all set.

Finally, another possible reason your Spotify Wrapped is not working is if you haven't streamed much music this past year. Per ViWizard, unless you have streamed at least 30 tracks for more than 30 seconds each, from at least five unique artists, your data won't be sufficient to create the master list you are looking to share.

How do you get your Spotify Wrapped 2023?

To get your Spotify Wrapped 2023, start by opening Spotify and look for the #SpotifyWrapped display. There, you'll see your audio day, how many minutes you spent streaming, your top song, and more via a super-cool graphic story.
