An easy guide to help you access your Spotify Wrapped 2022, along with quick fixes for when you can’t find it.

Spotify Wrapped 2022 is finally here, offering a personalized review of users’ music and podcast experience for the last year! Whether you’re curious about your listening habits or want to share interesting stats on social media, Spotify Wrapped has something for everyone.

However, some people may have problems viewing their Spotify Wrapped and potentially miss out on sharing their year in music with their friends and followers.

To make matters worse, if you don’t check out your Spotify Wrapped soon, you could lose your 2022 music review forever. What a shame!

Luckily, you don’t have to miss out on the fun. We will show you exactly how to access your Spotify Wrapped 2022, plus your older Wrapped playlists, so you can get in on the action. Let’s dive right in!

How to See Your Spotify Wrapped 2022

Spotify launched the feature in December 2016. Since then, Spotify Wrapped would usually come out sometime during the first week of December every year. Therefore, it was a welcome surprise when Spotify Wrapped 2022 came out earlier than expected on November 30th.

Fun fact: Spotify launched a predecessor to Wrapped in 2015 called “Year in Music.”

Usually, Spotify users receive a notification about their Wrapped when they launch the app and get an email alert from the company.

However, if you missed the notification, open your Spotify mobile app and tap the Your 2022 Wrapped is ready box. Doing so will open up your Wrapped 2022 in a slideshow or story format.

Spotify Wrapped 2022 is only available on the iOS and Android versions of the app. You cannot view your story on the desktop app or the Spotify website.

How to See Your Past Wrapped Playlists

During the Spotify Wrapped period, you have access to your Wrapped stories and personalized Wrapped playlists. The playlist contains your top 100 songs of the year and is usually accompanied by another playlist of similar songs that you missed out on during the year.

Unlike regular Spotify playlists, your Wrapped playlist only becomes available during the Wrapped period. More importantly, it consists of your listening habits from the previous year.

Historically, Spotify Wrapped stories are only available until the end of December or the following January. After this, you won’t be able to access your personalized Wrapped stories and cards.

We recommend downloading your story-style Spotify Wrapped 2022 stats soon if you want to retain the remembrance.

The good news is you can still access your past Wrapped playlist anytime.

Spotify will not automatically create a Wrapped playlist if you do not go through the Wrapped story for that year.

Follow these steps to access your past years’ Wrapped playlists:

  1. Open a web browser and head over to the Spotify Web Player.

How to Share Spotify Wrapped

Like previous editions, Spotify Wrapped 2022, by design, is for sharing with family, friends, and followers. Apart from your top artists and podcasts, it allows you to share unique stats.

Can’t Access Spotify Wrapped? Here’s What You Can Do

Some users may face trouble accessing their Spotify Wrapped stats. Last year, there were complaints of the app crashing when attempting to view their Wrapped 2021. Some may even find their Wrapped 2022 is not showing up.

Here are some of the most common reasons why you may face trouble accessing Spotify Wrapped:

  • Update not released yet: Spotify Wrapped does not appear for all users simultaneously. It may take longer for the stats to appear in your account. So, ensure your Spotify app is running on the latest version by checking the App Store or Play Store (depending on your device).
  • Not using the Spotify app: Spotify Wrapped 2022 is only available on the iOS and Android app versions. Therefore, you cannot access the feature on the web player, desktop app, or if you’re using a modded Spotify app.
  • Checking at the wrong time: You won’t find your Spotify Wrapped 2022 if you last checked for it before November 30th. That said, ensure you update your app and check again. Also, do not wait too long, or you may miss out on your Wrapped 2022 entirely.
    If Spotify Wrapped still isn’t working for you, you might want to check out The Pudding’s ‘Judge My Music’ in the meantime. It offers a fun, no-holds-barred look at your Spotify listening habits that you’re sure to enjoy.

If you’re unable to access your Spotify Wrapped 2022, there are a few quick fixes you could try out:
