How to see your Spotify Wrapped

If you’ve been eagerly awaiting your Spotify Wrapped 2022 results (and let’s be real, who isn’t?), they should have appeared on your home page within the Spotify app. Make sure you’ve downloaded the app and it’s updated to version 8.7.78 to access it.

Once you’ve done that, you can also turn your top artists into a dream festival lineup with Instafest.

What’s new this year?

Things look pretty familiar in Spotify Wrapped in 2022. As always, you’ll be given a round-up of your top songs, artists and genres.

New this year is your Listening Personality. Kind of like a Meyers-Briggs test, Spotify has condensed your music taste and listening habits into personality with defining features.

Audio Day will also analyse what music genres you listen to at different times to see how your taste evolves throughout the day.

If you’re seeing some strange results in your Wrapped that you don’t entirely agree with, there could be a few reasons for that.
