Spotify has unleashed its Wrapped 2023 edition, offering users a glimpse into their music preferences.
This year’s Spotify Wrapped unveils details about your beloved songs, artists, and albums. A new feature, “Me,” crafts a listening character based on your unique Spotify habits.
Spotify introduces exciting features like Sound Town, connecting you to a city based on your musical tastes, and the Top 5 Genres, showcasing your main music genres in a playful sandwich-themed layout. Discover when your music peaked for each of your Top 5 Artists, providing a comprehensive overview of your Spotify journey.
Behind the scenes, Spotify Wrapped collects data throughout the year, spanning from January to a few weeks before launch. To be counted, a song or podcast must be listened to for 30 minutes or more. Top albums, songs, and artists are determined by aggregated stream counts, while top podcasts consider the number of unique listeners.
Here’s a quick guide on how to access Spotify Wrapped:
- Ensure you’re subscribed to Spotify.
- Open the latest app version for a direct link to Spotify Wrapped.
- Alternatively, type “Wrapped” in the search bar or find the Wrapped button on the homepage for both desktop and mobile users.
To explore your 2023 Wrapped on Spotify, ensure your app is up-to-date. Look for the “Your 2023 Wrapped” banner within the app, or conveniently access it on the web by logging into your account from any browser.
The journey of Spotify Wrapped
The journey of Spotify Wrapped began in 2013 with the “Year in Review.” Over the years, it evolved into the quirky and shareable experience we know today. Features like “Me in 2033” and “Sound Town” add a personalized touch to the data presentation, making Spotify Wrapped a widely anticipated and celebrated event.
Creators, including artists like Dionne Warwick and John Mayer, actively contribute to the excitement, recording special messages for their listeners. In an interview in 2021, Spotify’s Alex Bodman revealed that the initial goal was a loyalty play, never anticipating the widespread sharing and enthusiasm it would generate.
