Sharing a personalised Spotify Wrapped on social media has become a cultural event in recent years. People compare their music tastes as well as discover their own and their friends' music trends. It's a fun way to reflect on your music listening habits and discover new music based on your preferences. When you can share it this year, you wonder? And if you still have time to tamper with the final report? We're about to find out.
What is Spotify Wrapped?
Spotify Wrapped is an annual feature, which typically becomes available toward the end of the year and provides Spotify users with a personalised summary of their listening habits over the past year. Spotify includes your top songs, top artists, total listening time, top genres, podcasts, new music discoveries, and creates a wrapped playlist.

Apart from that, Spotify Wrapped is a social media event. Bet you'll see lots of people sharing their Wrapped charts on Instagram Stories and X (formerly Twitter) feed with the hashtag #SpotifyWrapped.
How does Spotify Wrapped work?
Spotify has not provided a detailed breakdown of how exactly it converts streaming data into Wrapped reports. As per Billboard, Spotify considers the total number of streams, where a stream is counted by Spotify if a track is played for a minimum of 30 seconds, to pinpoint a user's favorite artists, songs, and albums.
The streaming platform amasses all this data until a certain date and then customises a kind of annual top-hits playlist for each user, taking into account their individual listening habits.
What date does Spotify Wrapped come out?
Spotify has not yet announced the cut-off date, but last year, Spotify released the 2022 Wrapped on November 30.
When does Spotify stop tracking your music for Wrapped?
There's speculation on social media and Reddit that Spotify starts tracking your listening habits on January 1 and stops tracking them on October 31, so if you wanted to 'fix your music taste,' the chance might be already blown.
How do I see my Spotify Wrapped 2023?
If you're using the Spotify app iOS or Android app on your phone, you can find your Spotify Wrapped statistics by opening the app and going to "Your Library." Then, tap on "Playlist" and then scroll down to "Your top songs of 2023."
To make sure you get your Wrapped, all you need is an account and a few hours with the songs and podcasts you love.
Is Spotify Wrapped for premium only?
Spotify Wrapped is available to free and premium users alike. However, premium users get additional data to add into reports.
