2020 has been a year for the books, but that hasn’t stopped anyone from streaming and listening to countless hours of music on Spotify. With the launch of Spotify Wrapped 2020, you can see which songs, artists, and podcasts you listened to most over the past year.
What is Spotify Wrapped 2020?
Spotify celebrates the end of each year by showcasing which music, genres, and more that you listened to over the past 12-ish months. Spotify Wrapped 2020 is now live for subscribers to dig through and share with their friends on social media.
If you don’t have a Spotify account, you can still experience 2020 Wrapped. Instead of jumping into your own streaming data, you can head over to the Spotify Wrapped website and scroll through the top podcasts, which decade’s music was listened to most, and more of 2020.
How to Find Your Spotify Wrapped 2020
You can only view your Wrapped 2020 results using the Spotify app for iPhone, iPad, and Android. With the app installed, head on over to Spotify’s Wrapped 2020 website using a browser on your phone or tablet such as Google Chrome. From there, tap the “Log in to see your 2020 Wrapped” link.
You will either be sent to a login screen or directed immediately into the Spotify app. If required, type in your credentials, and then you will be moved automatically to the mobile app.
Wrapped 2020 will be highlighted at the top of the “Home” tab. Tap on the card to view your end-of-year results.
You will be greeted with an Instagram Story-like interface that will automatically start playing music and a video. Tap on the right or left side of your screen to progress forward or backward through your Spotify Wrapped 2020.
If you’d like, you can share what you’ve listened to the most with your friends and family on social media. To do so, select the “Share This Story” link found under each card. Spotify will only share the section’s infographic seen at the end of the clip, not the entire video.
Select which social platform you would like to share your Spotify Wrapped 2020 results to. You can choose from Instagram Stories, Facebook, Snapchat, and more.
Spotify Wrapped for Artists
Wrapped 2020 is also for artists on Spotify. Instead of viewing metrics about how many hours you spent listening to your favorite artists, if you uploaded music to Spotify, you can see how many times it was streamed, countries where your hits were the biggest, and much more.
Plus, just like fans, you can export an infographic to your personal or band’s social media accounts and share the love with your followers and supporters. Head on over to Spotify for Artists to check out your Wrapped 2020.

Find out your most streamed songs and your artist of the year here.
It's time. Spotify just launched their 2020 Wrapped feature and it's about to reveal your music habits over the last 12 months.
Whether you spent your lockdowns and quarantines with the Hamilton soundtrack on repeat, drowning your sorrows with a glass of red wine while listening to Taylor Swift's Folklore, or somewhere in between, Wrapped 2020 is about to expose it all.
2020's Wrapped categories include: Top genres, Song of the Year, Top Podcasts, Top Decade and Top Artists. Here's how to find yours.
How to find your Spotify Wrapped 2020
As always, you can find your Spotify Wrapped stats on the Spotify website right here – or on the app.
The app will take you straight to the feature. The site will ask you to connect to your Spotify account from within the browser. Once connected, you'll be able to see your top 5 most listened to artists, your top 5 most listened to songs and a series of other categories that may have some very surprising results.
Spotify starts collecting your listening data from January 1st 2020 until October 31st 2020.
Spotify Wrapped 2020 categories include Top Artist, Top Songs and more. Picture: Spotify
How to find your personal top songs of 2020 on Spotify
Spotify's end-of-year wrap up even generates a playlist of your most played songs throughout the year.
On the Spotify app, you can find your Top Songs of 2020 playlist just under your 2020 Wrapped report.
WAP stands for “Wrapped As Playlist” and here’s how you can find your top songs for the year.
Your Spotify Wrapped playlist for The Tormented Year Of 2020 is ready!
If it wasn’t for Spotify Wrapped, I’d probably still believe it was March. But another year is coming to a close (praise be) and Music Streaming Christmas is upon us. The 2020 version of Spotify Wrapped is now live for most users and you can find your curated playlist on the Spotify App and online. This is quick wrap up to help guide you through the process.
Spotify Wrapped has become an annual institution that gives you a look back at exactly what you hooked up to your earholes over the last 12 months. Most of us have spent 10-12 months inside our homes and apparently, we’ve been listening to a lot of The Weeknd’s Blinding Lights. That one was streamed 1.6 billion times. I’d say that’s enough for a Grammy nomination?
It was all hands on deck for Spotify this year, too — they’ve pulled out podcast rankings showing recently acquired Joe Rogan Experience is Numero Uno on the podcasts list, followed closely by TED Talks Daily and New York Times The Daily. If you start a podcast called The Daily Experience I think you might be onto something. In all seriousness, it shows a subtle shift towards informative news podcasts in the face of the pandemic and another interesting little stat is the early morning hours was the most popular time to listen.
Me? I enjoy a little podcast by the fireside to end the day. It’s safe to say I am probably the biggest Protest The Hero fan this side of the Pacific Ocean, according to my own list. Alright, I’ve kept you waiting long enough. Everything you need is below.
How to find your Spotify Wrapped
If you want to get in on the Wrapped action, you just need to head to the Spotify Wrapped site and log in to your Spotify account. It’s that easy. Then you get a PowerPoint-type slide show which well tell you which music you feasted on this year, how many minutes you spent listening to certain artists and an infographic about your top songs.
My picks are GOOD. As yours will be. Unless you’ve been subject to thousands of hours of Baby Shark (is that still a thing in 2020?) or The Wiggles courtesy of your little ones.
Entertain your brain with the coolest news from streaming to superheroes, memes to video games.
Beyond just getting your stats, you’ll also find a curated playlist of your top 100 tracks of the year in Spotify. There’s a couple of ways to do it:
- Go to the Spotify Wrapped site online and punch in your login details. You’ll be able to open the playlist of your top songs (in order), your Missed Hits and “On Record” which is a mix of songs and artists and podcasts you might like. It really is that simple.
- If you access via browser from your mobile you’ll get the nice little visual rundown of the year. As of now, the desktop version just sends you straight to your playlists.
Your playlist on desktop.
- Or head to the Spotify mobile app, go to “Search” and you’ll find the “Wrapped 2020” card, ready to go under “uniquely yours.” Spotify is taking a little time to roll this one out, so if you don’t see your playlist in the mobile app right now, a little patience!
The best advice? Mobile browser — you can add the playlist to your library that way. Or just access the Spotify Wrapped site from desktop and “Save” the playlist by clicking on the heart. Then, you can jump into “Your Library” on the Spotify app and it will be there, under playlists.
Here's how to flaunt your exceptional taste this year, aside from just posting photos of your vinyl collection.
Updated on 12/4/2020 at 3:18 PM
The tradition of year-end lists and social media roundups come together every December for you to dip your toes into a quantified retrospective of your listening habits. Yes, Spotify Wrapped is back to help you see 2020 out the door. (Farewell!)
Spotify’s Wrapped site for 2020 highlights the most-listened-to songs, artists, albums, and podcasts of 2020 across the US and the globe. That’s in addition to a personalized year in review that lets you dig into the songs you’ve been listening to throughout the year with all the working from home and social distancing the year has required. Plus, you can get shareable images that let you let everyone else know about your awesome taste in music. Alternatively, it might alert you to exactly how much your children have taken over your listening with their repeated demands for “Let It Go” or whatever song they couldn’t get enough of this year.
Here’s what you need to know to dig up your personalized year in review whether you want to flaunt it or bury it.
What is Spotify Wrapped?
Every year, Spotify seems to take over discussions on social media as everyone shares their listening habits. It’s fun to look back at your listening, whether you want an excuse to revisit that great Fiona Apple album or want a reminder to buy albums from your favorite artists to make sure you’re supporting them.
This all happens because of Spotify Wrapped. It’s a site created by the streaming service that uses your listening history to churn out a little information about what you listened to the most over the last year. It also compiles your listening history into the history of everyone else using the service to show what has been trending in the US and around the globe over the last 11 to 12 months.

How to find your Spotify year in review
Head to the Spotify Wrapped site whether you want to get the mobile or desktop experience. The site will take you through the most-played artists, songs, and podcasts across Spotify, among a few other best of the year lists. You’ll also be prompted to sign in to see a personalized look back at 2020.
Inside the Spotify app, you’ll find a bunch of year-end playlists for you. The first one is “Your Top Songs of 2020.” Then you’re off down memory lane, looking at everything you loved (or your kids loved to the detriment of your Wrapped playlist) in 2020. The playlist will autofill with the 100 songs you listened to most. You’ll also see a “Missed Hits” playlist that collects the biggest songs of the year that you weren’t listening to. You’ll also get one called “On Record,” which Spotify explains as “a mixed media experience that highlights your top 2020 artists.” That last one is only available in the US, UK, Ireland, Australia, New Zealand, and Canada.
Though, Premium users will get badges like the Tastemaker badge (“X of your playlists gained X new followers”) or the Pioneer badge (“You listened to X song before it hit 50,000 streams”). There’s also going to be in-app quizzes and a feature called the “Story of Your 2020 with your Top Song,” which takes you through your listening habits on the song you listened to most.

How do you share Your Spotify Wrapped 2020?
You can, of course, take a screengrab of your playlist to make sure everyone knows about your impeccable taste in music.
However, you don’t have to just post a screengrab of a playlist. You can grab some ready-to-share images from Wrapped. This year’s images of your listening habits come in a sort of Instagram Stories-esque series of cards. You can share to your heart’s content. They’re well suited to posting on Instagram stories, but crop a little off when you share to Twitter.

It’s that time of year again — the now-familiar Spotify Wrapped roundups have come out, and everyone’s buzzing about what songs they listened to most, who their top artists were, and how they stacked up in terms of branching out in their taste during the unprecedented year of 2020, among many other things.
If you haven’t heard of Spotify Wrapped, it’s a yearly tradition in which Spotify rounds up all of your listening data from January 1 to October 31 and compiles it into a detailed list of your stats in that time range. This year’s Wrapped 2020 tells you how many new artists you discovered, how many genres you listened to along with several top fives: your five most played songs, your top podcasts (a new feature), and your top artists.
It also condenses this information into Story-sized bites that are easy to share on your social media, as you’ve probably been seeing already. Your Spotify Wrapped story can only be found on a smartphone for a limited time if you are a subscriber. Here’s how to find and share it.
How to find your Spotify Wrapped story and playlists
1. To find your Wrapped landing page, you should be able to simply scroll down on Spotify’s homepage, until you see the pink icon that says “Your 2020 Wrapped” next to it. If you’re not logged in, simply enter your credentials.
- If you can’t find it, go to the Search tab and scroll down to find the Wrapped icon, or type “2020 Wrapped” and it should be the first result. If you’re not a subscriber, you can find general Wrapped 2020 listening data by visiting https://2020.byspotify.com and hitting “Start” on the landing page.
2. Tapping “Your 2020 Wrapped” banner will take you to the Wrapped landing page on the app. Tap the banner at the top, reading “See how you listened in 2020,” to view your story and stats.
- You can also scroll down on this menu to find other cool year-end features, including a playlist of your top 100 songs of 2020, hit songs you haven’t listened to, and some of the most popular artists of the year in general.
3. To share a slide from your Wrapped story, hit “Share this story” under the individual story card to share it to your choice of social media.
If you want to find past Wrapped stories, you’re out of luck — they’re only available to view for a limited time. However, you can see your past Wrapped playlists by simply entering the year and “wrapped” into the search bar.
While the entire 2020 Wrapped breakdown won’t be available on the desktop version of Spotify, there are still some features that are available.
In the Spotify desktop app, if you navigate to the “Made for you” tab in the left hand sidebar, you can see not only your 2020 Wrapped playlist and your missed hits playlist, but also past Wrapped playlists and other playlists made especially for you, like a playlist of songs you’ve played frequently in the past called “Repeat Rewind,” and in the more recent past, “On Repeat.”
At the end of the year, Spotify publishes a retrospective of each user on the platform, called Spotify Wrapped, where you can find which artists and songs you listened to the most last year. In this article, you will know how to access your Spotify 2020 Wrapped.
How to view your Spotify 2020 Wrapped?
It is very simple to access your 2020 Spotify Wrapped. Open the application on your smartphone and touch the Search option (magnifying glass icon) on the bottom bar of the interface. In the sequence, scroll down the page until you find the Your 2020 Wrapped option. In the sequence, to access the platform usage data, go to See what you liked in 2020 and the display, in Instagram Stories format, will start automatically:
As you can see in the image above, Spotify still offers other options based on the music you heard throughout 2020. First, the platform automatically generates two customized playlists. The first one includes the 100 songs you listened to the most during the year. The second brings together releases from 2020 that you have not heard yet but that, from your tastes, Spotify thinks you will enjoy.
Finally, in the same section of 2020 Wrapped, you can also see playlists with the most listened to artist of the year by other Spotify users in your area and selections of the best hits by genre. In addition, there is a list of the most successful podcasts in 2020 and other themed playlists. This last selection of content, however, is the same for all users.
Think you know which song was your go-to as you tried your hand at making a sourdough starter or baked your 15th loaf of banana bread this year? Well, Spotify is here to help you remember all your favorite artists who helped (and are still helping) get you through quarantine. As unbelievable as it may be, 2020 is actually coming to end soon. But before you say goodbye, you’ll want to know how to find your Spotify 2020 Wrapped results, so you can close out the year listening to old standbys.
Following the release of its global 2020 Wrapped results on Tuesday, Dec. 1, Spotify gifted listeners with their own personalized Wrapped results. If you’re an avid Spotify user, you know the audio streaming service keeps track of what you play in order to put it all together in a fun little story you can browse at the end of the year. For 2020, some of the info you’ll get includes your top genres, your most-listened to song (and how many times you streamed it), your top songs (which you can add to your library as a playlist), your top podcasts, your top artist, your top decade, and how many total minutes you listened to Spotify during the year.
To make it even better, it all plays through in a colorful story, and you can even make some guesses about your results along the way.
Even though it’s all right there in your Spotify app, it can be tricky to find at first. Thankfully, there are a couple ways to get to it.
Find your Spotify 2020 Wrapped results in the app.
This first method is the easiest way to get to all the goods.
1. Open your Spotify app on your phone, and tap the search tab at the bottom.
2. Type "2020 Wrapped" into the search bar, and tap on the "2020 Wrapped" genre that shows up right below it.
3. Once you tap the 2020 Wrapped genre, "Your 2020 Wrapped" will be the first option at the top of the screen. Tap where it says, "See how you listened in 2020."
4. From there, watch the story that pops up, and let it play all the way through to see all your end-of-year results.
Find your Spotify 2020 Wrapped results from the Spotify website on your phone.
If for some reason you can’t find it in your app, you can try accessing it from the 2020 Wrapped Spotify website on your phone, and then tap where it says to log in, and put in your info. You can only access the Wrapped Story in the app, so you won’t be able to see it on your desktop. From there, watch the story and see what you’ve been listening to. You can share most of the results in neat little cards by tapping the share icon as you watch, and there will be a final card with your top five songs and artists that you can share as well.
Once you’ve found your 2020 Wrapped, you can save Your Top Songs 2020 playlist (add it when prompted during the story), and you can check your Missed Hits playlist, as well as a new mixed-media experience called On Record, which will have songs and podcasts from your fave artists. Once your playlists are saved, you can access them wherever you use Spotify.
Now that you know how to find it, go on and see if it was Ari, Tay, or Bey who got you through your post-Tiger King marathon haze.

Spotify Wrapped is back again for 2020, as you may have already guessed from the screenshots taking over social media. Here’s how to see your Spotify Wrapped results right now.
Spotify announced its annual Wrapped experience this week. The feature gives users an interactive breakdown into all of their most played tunes of 2020, offering some predictable results and some perhaps more surprising.
It includes stats from all of your most played songs, artists, genres and podcasts of the year, giving us all a much-needed opportunity to step back and reminisce over the songs that got us through the first 11 months of 2020.
How to get your Spotify Wrapped for 2020
All you need to do to see your Spotify Wrapped is open the Spotify app on your Android or iOS device and click on the “2020 Wrapped” banner at the top of the home tab.
If you can’t see the banner or you don’t use Spotify on your smartphone or tablet, you can also visit Spotify.com/wrapped on your desktop and log in to see your results.
Read our review of Spotify
After you view your Wrapped stats, you’ll be able to save a graphic with your top five artists, top five songs, minutes listened and favourite genre, perfect for sharing on your story (or not, depending on how embarrassed you are of your listening history).
Spotify also generates a playlist of all your most played songs at the end of every year, so you’ll have easy access to all your top tunes in one place.
For all you Wrapped veterans, Spotify has also added some new features this year to keep things interesting. These include in-app quizzes, the most binge-worthy podcast and notable dates for your top song, such as when you first heard it and when you hit 100 streams.
There are also new personalised playlists, such as ‘Missed Hits’ for similar music you didn’t hear in 2020, and ‘On Record’, a mixed media experience that shines a light on your favourite artists.
Even non-Spotify users can get in on the fun this year. Spotify has gathered all of this year’s global listening trends on its website for everyone to access.
Spotify has revealed that its most-streamed artist of 2020 is Bad Bunny, with more than 8.2 billion streams globally. He also had the top album of 2020. Video Elephant
Much as we would like it to be, 2020 is not an official wrap yet. But Spotify has already put a bow on the year with its 2020 Wrapped lists of the most streamed artists, songs and other content on the subscription service.
The most streamed artist of 2020 by Spotify’s more than 320 million listeners worldwide was Bad Bunny, who had 8.3 billion streams and the most streamed album, “YHLQMDLG,” which collected more than 3.3 billion streams. The Latin music superstar recently skipped the American Music Awards after testing positive for COVID-19.
After Bad Bunny, the most streamed artists were Drake, J Balvin, the late rapper Juice WRLD, and The Weeknd, who had the most played song with about 1.6 billion streams, “Blinding Lights.”
Your personalized Wrapped experience is here—and it’s more *you* than ever. Check out the cool new features to help you dig even deeper into your 🎧 habits. #2020Wrappedhttps://t.co/99HpjLaFVx
— Spotify News (@SpotifyNews) December 2, 2020
For the second year in a row, Billie Eilish was the most-streamed female artist, followed by Taylor Swift, Ariana Grande, Dua Lipa and Halsey.
As more people stayed at home during the coronavirus pandemic, listeners streamed more songs on work-from-home-themed playlists and more listeners streamed on video game consoles, Spotify says.
More than 65,000 playlists entitled “BLM” or “Black Lives Matter,” were created and there were 64 million streams of Spotify’s own “Black Lives Matter” playlist. Top songs streamed about the movement: “This is America” by Childish Gambino, “I Need You To (Breonna Taylor)” by Tobe Nwigwe, “Black Parade” by Beyonce, “Alright” by Kendrick Lamar and “The Bigger Picture” by Lil Baby.
Swiping through your phone's camera roll is undeniably an efficient way to look back on what you did over the last year, but music never fails to make people feel incredibly nostalgic. Sometimes, music almost acts as a time capsule, transporting listeners back to what they were doing or feeling when they first tuned in. And that's precisely why we love when Spotify unleashes its end-of-year feature, Spotify Wrapped.
If you've never used Spotify Wrapped, it enables users to peruse their favorite playlists, artists, and tunes from the last year. So if you're looking to experience a serious blast from the past, here's how you'll be able to find Spotify Wrapped 2020, to look back on the year in music.
Here's how to find Spotify Wrapped for 2020:
Your personalized Spotify Wrapped information will show the artists, tracks, and albums you listened to most, as well as how many minutes of music you listened to, top podcast genres, and how many songs you "liked." You'll be able to access all of your personal Spotify Wrapped information as early as Dec. 1. And when it's officially available, accessing it will be incredibly easy.
You'll be able to get in on the fun by logging into Spotify in the app on mobile and tablet, and via the Spotify Wrapped website. Make sure you're logged into your Spotify account via online web player, and once you're in, you'll be able to see all of your music data from the last year. We won't be surprised when Beyoncé is our most-listened-to artist for the fifth year in a row, but it's exciting nonetheless.
Spotify Wrapped has unveiled the most popular music from 2020.
2020 Wrapped lists the top-streamed artists, albums, songs, playlists, and podcasts from the last year, nationally and internationally. The most-streamed artists globally this year included: Bad Bunny (in the No. 1 spot). Drake, J Balvin, Juice WRLD, The Weeknd, Billie Eilish, Taylor Swift, Ariana Grande, Dua Lipa, and Halsey.
The Weeknd took the top spot for the most-streamed song of the year with "Blinding Lights," (and he's been donning face bandages to promote it since March).
This year, Spotify also included the top self-care playlists of the year — because after the dumpster fire that was 2020, it's no surprise we all needed some self-love tunes. This included the Confidence Boost, Your Favorite Coffeehouse, Songs to Sing in the Shower, and Just Smile playlists.
We also threw it back a lot — no, not like the TikTok dances, but with our music! The 1980s were the most popular throwback era for songs in 2020.
Podcasts were also a way many still passed the time in 2020. The top podcasts of the year included The Joe Rogan Experience, TED Talks Daily, and The Daily (from The New York Times).
Music is a great way to look back on the year, so get ready to experience
through your headphones. We're about to bid the year farewell with the best jam sesh imaginable.
