What to Do If Spotify Wrapped Isn’t Showing Up

Some users may have trouble accessing their Spotify Wrapped stats due to the app crashing or Wrapped not showing up.

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

Search for Spotify Wrapped manually

If you can’t see your Spotify Wrapped banner in the app, you can search for it manually by clicking the search button and typing: ‘spotify:datastories:wrapped’ or ‘2023 Wrapped‘.

Typing ‘spotify:datastories:wrapped’ brings you directly to the Wrapped stories, while searching for ‘2023 Wrapped’ will direct you to your 2023 wrapped playlists.

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.

Update your Spotify app

The app needs to be the latest version for Wrapped to appear. So, if Spotify Wrapped has dropped but still isn’t showing up for you, it’s worth ensuring the app is updated.

Check for updates in the App Store (for iOS users) or the Play Store (for Android users), and ensure you have at least version 8.8.92 on iOS or on Android for the Wrapped feature.

If updating doesn’t resolve the issue, consider a more drastic step: uninstall and reinstall the app. Don’t worry; your Spotify music and playlists linked to your account will reappear once you log in again.

Clear the Spotify cache

The stored cache data on the Spotify app may be causing an issue with loading your Spotify Wrapped. Follow these steps to clear the cache:

How to See Your Past Wrapped Playlists

During the Spotify Wrapped period, you get your personalized Wrapped stories and playlists, including your top 100 songs artist messages, etc. However, Wrapped stories are only viewable until late December or early January. After this, only your Wrapped playlist remains, which you can access anytime.

To access these playlists, simply log-in to Spotify and click on the links below, depending on the year you’re looking for:

You’ll find the 2016 Wrapped playlist under Wrapped 2019. The same link will also present you with Your Decade Wrapped. This contains your top songs and podcasts from the 2010s.

You can also save the playlists to your Spotify library for easier future access. To do so, simply follow these steps:

  1. Click on the links above to go to your Wrapped year of choice.
  2. Double-click on the playlist to open it.
  3. Once open, tap the heart button to save it to your library.
