What to Do If Spotify Wrapped Isn’t 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.
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.
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:
- Open the Spotify app on your mobile, tap on your profile icon, and click Settings and privacy.
- Go to the Storage section.
- Tap on the Clear cache button.
