Spotify Wrapped 2022 is here: What’s your ‘listening personality’?

The much-anticipated 2022 edition of Spotify Wrapped is here, with a detailed, data dive into all the most listened-to music, podcasts, artists, albums, and more for the year, as well as offering you a look at your own listening data from 2022. It’s always a fun way to discover some of your own listening stats (like how many hours you logged, or the songs you played on repeat), all presented in a cool slideshow-style presentation on your phone or tablet. Apple Music has its own version of it, as does YouTube Music, but Spotify’s is easily the standard. And this year, as usual, they’ve added a few new tricks.

Spotify Wrapped 2022's new Music Personality feature.

Spotify Wrapped is a shareable social media goldmine for the company, and this year the music streamer has added a couple of new features, including “Your Listening Personality,” which uses your listening habits throughout the year to slot you into one of 16 personality types, including The Specialist, The Adventurer, The Fanclubber, and The Replayer. The feature uses metrics to look at how you tend to listen to music — do you listen to the same tracks or artists on repeat, are you the first to jump on new releases, or are you a wanderer of the Spotify catalog looking for something new?

Audio Day is another new feature this year that looks at how what you listen to changes throughout the day — from the morning to midday, to the evening. My own Audio Day included “Good Vibes” in the morning and “Soothing Zen Healing” in the night (I listen to white-nose to help me sleep).

In addition to all the personalized information about your listening habits, Spotify has released the platform’s biggest hitmakers, with Bad Bunny, Taylor Swift, and Drake ranking as the most streamed artist around the world (respectively). In the U.S., it’s just a little rearranged with Drake in the most streamed artist top spot, followed by Swift and Bad Bunny in the top three. Harry Styles’ As it Was took the most streamed song title in the U.S. and Bad Bunny’s Un Verano Sin Ti was the most streamed album in the U.S. On the podcast front, it’s probably no surprise that The Joe Rogan Experience reigned supreme again, globally and in the U.S.

To check out your own Spotify Wrapped 2022, just launch the app on your smartphone or tablet (the slideshow isn’t available on desktop or browser, unfortunately), or check out our explainer on Wrapped for how to do it. And while you’re at it, if you ever wondered what kind of music festival would be created from your unique Spotify listening habits, check out our article on the Instafest app.

Spotify takes the pain out of road trip playlists with Soundtrack Your Ride
spotify video rolling out soon app

Spotify and playlists go together like chocolate and peanut butter (or whatever awesome combo doesn't trigger your allergies), but it's not always easy finding just the right playlist for a particular event. Take the classic Thanksgiving road trip: Depending on where you and your family members live, you could be looking at anywhere from one hour to 48 hours of highway haulin'. Do you really want to painstakingly assemble that much music? Of course you don't. So Spotify has created a new tool called Soundtrack Your Ride, which will create a custom playlist of virtually any length, based on your road trip parameters.

The tool, which works for both Premium and free Spotify tiers, takes the form of a quiz. First, you enter your location and your destination on a giant map of the U.S. Unfortunately for family living in Canada, you can't enter Canadian locations even though they're quite prominently displayed on the map itself. You'll just have to listen to the CBC until you're south of the border.

Spotify’s secret Social Listening feature could create global listening parties
spotify social listening shared playlists song queues small

Though it's still only available to company employees, Spotify appears to be working on a new feature called Social Listening, which lets friends collaborate on music queues and possibly listen to them together in real time. Spotted by app researcher Jane Manchung Wong, who detailed some of the feature's inner workings on Twitter, Social Listening looks like Spotify's existing Collaborative Playlists on steroids.

As the name implies, there's a real social aspect to the feature. Those who choose to join in on your Social Listening invite will see your Spotify profile info, and you'll be able to see theirs. Sending invites to join in can be done by sharing a dedicated URL via all of the usual means (texting, Facebook, etc.) but Spotify appears to have made in-person collaboration the main thrust of Social Listening, through the use of scannable QR-like codes.
