While a few have already released annual nostalgia tracks, Spotify’s 2022 episode Wrapped has debuted.
The company likes to breathe new life into its personalized best of lists every year, and this year’s got a lot of likes. A new feature called Your Listening Personality offers some insight into what the music you listen to says about your taste. Wrapped determines which of the 16 Audience Personality types suits you best, including The Replayer, The Specialist, The Adventurer, and The Fanclubber.
Of course, Wrapped will also record your top artists, genres, songs, podcasts and count the total minutes you’ve listened to. The Sound Day feature can also tell you how your musical preferences change throughout the day in an interactive story format. Artist Messages bounces back from 2021 with over 40,000 performances recording thank-you videos for top listeners. These clips are followed by the most listened song by each artist this year. Spotify has also added the ability to purchase items and view upcoming events through its Wrapped hub.
This year, the company added the ability to share cards via Instagram DMs, Facebook Messenger, WhatsApp and Line. Moreover, there is a Snapchat lens for sharing Listening Personality, Wrapped Bitmoji, and themed GIFs on GIPHY.
