Spotify Wrapped is back, giving users of the popular music streaming service the chance to find out their top tracks and podcasts of the last 12 months.
From today, Spotify users will be able to see their personalised insights on iOS or Android apps.
To get your personalised wrapped, simply open your app and give it a second to refresh. A large 2020 wrapped button will appear in the middle of your screen.
Alongside the usual stats on your most listened to artists, songs, genres and podcasts, the steaming service has added some facts to help you dig deeper into your listening habits.
This year you can see the Story of Your 2020 for your top track, including when it was first streamed, its 100th stream and other key moments in its history.
There’s also a look at your podcast listening habits, and new in-app quizzes to test your skills at picking your top podcasts artists and which decade you listened to most.
For Premium Spotify users, new badges for achievements such as listening to a song before it was cool (50,000 streams) and if one of your playlists gained a large following.
New personalised playlists have also been launched including one for your top songs, and another for those hits you might have missed this year.
For users in the UK a new “mixed-media” experience will allow you to dig deeper into some of your top artists from the year.
For the first time, global listening trends are also being made available to non-users. So even if you’re not subscribed to Spotify, you can check out the top globals tracks and podcasts here

2020 streaming trends
Unsurprisingly as people across the world moved to working from home, Spotify’s playlist geared towards this was one of the most popular for the year. Nostalgia-themed playlists, as well as wellness podcasts, also increased in popularity.
The number of people streaming from home – rather than on the move – as well as those streaming from game consoles both increased this year. There was a 430% rise in garden-themed playlists and a boost of 40% in cleaning-themed collections.
