Having reached the third edition, Spotify returns this year as well with the annual Spotify Wrapped 2021. Now the obvious question is: how do I access my 2021 Spotify Wrapped? Easy, just open your Spotify app for Android or iOS and a pop-up will appear showing it to you.

Why Spotify Wrapped?

If 2020 was the year that turned the world upside down, 2021 was the one in which our eyes got used to this change of perspective. Set aside the concept of “normality”, we have embraced the unknown and valued everything that makes us unique. Wrapped 2021 is here to celebrate the uniqueness of each of us, the millions of strange and wonderful ways of listening and living in a world that never ceases to surprise us.

Today Spotify unveils the artists, albums, songs, playlists, and podcasts that marked 2021 and that the platform’s 381 million users listened to the most during the year. At the same time, a personalized in-app experience is available with which to proudly discover and showcase the music and podcasts that have inspired us throughout the year.

What is included in this year’s Wrapped?

Starting today, users can access their personalized Wrapped experience exclusively on the Spotify mobile app (iOS and Android), which also contains several new features:

  • New Data Stories – In addition to your artists, genres, songs, podcasts, and minutes listened to throughout the year, the personalized Wrapped experience includes several new features to discover, including 2021: The Movie, Your Audio Aura, Playing Cards and 2021 Wrapped Blend. Visit the Spotify For the Record blog to find out all the details on these new features.
    • 2021: The Movie – In this feature, your favorite songs are paired with classic scenes from a film about you.
    • Your Audio Aura – Based on your top two music moods, we collaborated with an aura expert to visualize your audio aura. (You can learn more about this by clicking here.)
    • Playing Cards – This is an interactive, data-based game that you can play with your friends and then share with them. This year, we’ll present you with several statements about your listening skills, and you’ll have to guess which ones are correct.
    • 2021 Wrapped Blend – Using Spotify’s new Blend feature, users can see how their 2021 music tastes compare to friends’, stream their blended playlist, and share their findings on social media.
  • Expanded sharing options – sharing your Wrapped cards is one of the most popular social activities at the end of the year. In addition to Instagram, Facebook, Snapchat and Twitter, from this year it will be possible to share the Wrapped cards also on TikTok.
  • Exclusive experiences for the most passionate listeners – we also added a special surprise: videos from more than 170 artists and creators who thank fans for including them in their Wrapped. These thank-you videos will appear if fans have a song by one of the participating artists in their “Your Favorite Songs of 2021” playlist.
