When is Spotify Wrapped 2022 coming out? Plus how to find it
(Pocket-lint) – You may have seen this thing popularly called Spotify Wrapped. In fact, it happens every holiday season.

If you want to find Spotify Wrapped for 2022, do it here – plus everything you need to know about Spotify Wrapped.
What is Spotify Wrapped?
Spotify Wrapped started in 2016. Released annually during the holidays for free, it’s basically a fun way for Spotify users to showcase their music tastes on social media as well as learn more about their listening habits. It’s a visual representation of the songs, artists, genres and podcasts they listened to the most from January 1st to October 31st. Users usually share their Spotify Wrapped results on Twitter, Instagram and other sites.
As part of Spotify Wrapped, Spotify also reveals the most popular artists, songs, albums and podcasts globally and regionally over the past year.
What does Spotify Wrapped show you?
Spotify Wrapped has evolved over the past six years. For 2022, Wrapped includes cards (aka “stories”) for the following:
- My top genres
- Sound day
- Music listened to during My Mornings, My Afternoons and My Nights
- My minutes listened
- My top song
- My best songs
- My best artist
- My best artists
- Your listening personality
Audio Day is new, and Spotify describes it as an interactive story that “gives you an insight into how your music tastes evolved throughout the day, Audio Day shows niche moods and aesthetic descriptions of the music you listened to during the morning, midday and evening periods”.
From productivity apps to apps for travel, reading, listening to music, and more, these are the absolute best iPhone apps available right now.
There is also a new card/story available for avid listeners called Your Listening Personality. Spotify said that with this new card, it showcases “16 different listening personality types” that showcase your listening personality based on how you listened to music throughout the year.
You can also access a wrap-up story at the end that combines results from all the other cards. At the end of the Spotify Wrapped slideshow, Spotify compiles the most important parts of Spotify Wrapped – such as the best songs of the year, minutes listened to and top artists – into a playlist.
