Spotify Wrapped 2020

All your listening habits laid out in a Instagram-story style way


My personal Spotify Wrapped.

Lauren McCloy, Staff Writer

After sharing the most-streamed artists, albums, songs and podcasts earlier this week, Spotify just released the best part of 2020. The company’s year-in-review summarizes 11ish months of music and podcast activity. But there are some big changes this year, with the biggest being the personalized version of Wrapped is now mobile-only, available inside the company’s apps on Android and iOS, rather than only on Safari/Google etc.


Spotify’s stories-style format for Wrapped this time around is alike to what you see on your Instagram feed every single day. Spotify doesn’t yet have stories as a regular function of its mobile apps, but the company has been testing them for months now. Stories-like format showed also on Spotify’s Christmas Hits playlist, featuring videos from several artists featured in the album.

And although it remains a test as of right now, who knows what’s in store.


While the medium may be different, Wrapped is still mostly the same. The whole feature is your year’s worth of listening on the service — from top songs and artists to podcasts and genres. Like playlist builders Spotify has created in the past, this year’s edition of Wrapped includes quizzes so you can see how well you know yourself as you relive the soundtrack for 2020. The app will even tell you how many minutes you spent listening to both music and podcasts, along with what your “most binge-worthy” show was. You’ll also discover the exact day you listened the most, and on which date you heard your 100th song of the year. it’s very precise.


Spotify Wrapped is always the highlight of the end of the year for me and others alike. It’s a rundown of your personalized music and says a lot about a person, so hopefully you are on Spotify this holiday season!
