This year, music lovers and podcast listeners have had more time to stream than ever before.
While it has been a year unlike any other, one thing remains the same: We all love to see our year “wrapped” in a nice little bow.
This year is full of insights on artists, songs, genres and podcasts that defined your listening in 2020 — all created just for you.
If you’re keen to get yours, eligible users can access their personalised Wrapped experience exclusively in the Spotify mobile app (iOS and Android).
In addition to what fans love most about the previous versions, they’ve also added a few new features to look out for.
Here’s what’s new:
— In-app quizzes allow listeners to test their skills at predicting the top podcasts, artists and even top decade they streamed most.
— Follow your top song’s journey through the year with Story of Your 2020.
— New personalised playlists to help you make the most of what you listened to this year including Your Top Songs, which are the songs you loved most this year in one convenient place, as well as Missed Hits, the Wrapped discovery playlist where Spotify recommends 2020 releases that you didn’t listen to but that you might like.
— Listeners in Australia and New Zealand can dig deeper into some of their top artists of 2020 in On Record, a mixed-media experience that highlights your top 2020 artists.
So, what did we as a nation listen to this year?
