As we approach the end of 2022, music fans want to know when does Spotify Wrapped come out and how can you see the playlist.

Spotify has a great way of showing us all the songs we've streamed the most over the last 12 months - and if you can't wait to see which tracks you've been obsessed with, the wait is almost over. For the last few years, Spotify Wrapped has been telling users the number of artists they listened to, their most played song of the year, and much more with its personalised throwback trip down memory lane and music listening journey.

And while recent days have seen the Spotify festival app go viral as a way of people seeing their favourite artists all together - from Lewis Capaldi to Harry Styles - now attention has turned to Spotify Wrapped.

When does Spotify Wrapped 2022 come out?

Spotify Wrapped was released on Wednesday 30 November, and as well as allowing listeners to discover their own most streamed artists, it also shares the top songs and talent globally.

It comes after Spotify teased the release on their Instagram on 22 November with a post that read "Your Spotify Wrapped is coming soon". While eager fans commented wanting more information, the official Spotify Podcasts Instagram added "We're so ready."

This year, Spotify has also launched Your Listening Personality feature, which is based on how you listen to music. There's 16 possible Listening Personalities you can be awarded, from 'The Adventurer' and 'The Early Adopter' to 'The Replayer' and 'The Time Traveller'.

Spotify says: "2022 Wrapped is a celebration of the year gone by and an invitation to join in on the fun. It’s all about the two-way connections that bring millions of creators and fans together through audio every day. We know that no two listeners are alike, so 2022 Wrapped encourages you to gaze into your vibrant audio kaleidoscope and show it off to the world."

How to view your Spotify Wrapped

  1. Open the Spotify mobile app
  2. Tap on the 'Your 2022 Wrapped' banner on the home screen to access your playlist. If you can't see it, type "wrapped" in the search bar and you should be able to view the banner.
  3.  Click on the banner. This will direct to your personalised Spotify Wrapped "story", where you can view your customised statistics.
  4. And if you're not too embarrassed, you can share the data to social media platforms by clicking on the "share this story" button.

And that's not all, there are some other Spotify Wrapped features, including customised playlists of your top songs and popular tracks that you might have missed over the course of the year. All of these these can be accessed through the Spotify Wrapped banner.

Can you get Spotify Wrapped without a Premium subscription?

Yes, Spotify Wrapped is available to both paying and non-paying users. However, subscribers will have access to more detailed information about their listening habits.

For example, Premium users can get a "Pioneer" badge if they listened to a song before it reached 50,000 streams.
