Spotify Wrapped has become an annual institution that gives you a look back at exactly what you’ve attached to your ears over the last 12 months. Most of us have spent 10-12 months in our homes and we have obviously listened to a lot of The Blind Blind Lights. This one was broadcast 1.6 billion times. Would I say that’s enough for a Grammy nomination?
Everything was at hand for Spotify this year as well – they pulled out podcast charts showing the recently acquired Joe Rogan Experience’s Numero Uno in the podcast list, followed by TED Talks Daily and the New York Times The Daily. If you’re running a podcast called The Daily Experience, I think you might be on to something. Seriously, this shows a slight shift to informative news podcasts in the face of the pandemic, and another interesting little article is that the early hours of the morning were the most popular time to listen.
I enjoy a little podcast by the fire to end the day. I can say for sure that I am probably the biggest fan of Protest Hero on this side of the Pacific, according to my own list. Okay, I’ve been waiting for you long enough. Everything you need is below.
How to Find Your Spotify Wrapped
If you want to log in to the Wrapped action, you just need to go to the Spotify Wrapped site and log in to your Spotify account. It’s that easy. Then you get a PowerPoint slideshow that tells you well what music you’ve been feasting on this year, how many minutes you’ve spent listening to certain artists, and infographics about your best songs.
My photos are GOOD. As will yours. Unless you’ve been the subject of thousands of hours of Baby Shark (is that still something in 2020?) Or The Wiggles with the kind assistance of your little ones.
In addition to just getting your stats, you’ll also find a curatorial playlist of the top 100 songs of the year on Spotify. There are several ways to do this:
- Go to the Spotify Wrapped website online and enter your login details. You will be able to open the playlist with your best songs (in order), your missed hits and “On Record”, which is a combination of songs and artists and podcasts that you may like. It’s really that simple.
- If you access through the browser from your mobile phone, you will get a nice little visual presentation of the year. At the moment, the desktop version simply sends you directly to your playlists.
- Or head to the Spotify mobile app, go to “Search” and you’ll find the “Wrapped 2020” card ready to go under “uniquely yours.” Spotify takes a while to release, so if you don’t currently see your playlist in the mobile app, be patient!
The best advice? Mobile browser – you can add the playlist to your library this way. Or just open the Spotify Wrapped site from the desktop and “Save” the playlist by clicking on the heart. You can then go to “Your Library” on the Spotify app and it will be there, under playlists.
Too easy, happy listening, Merry Christmas, good deliverance 2020!
