Spotify Wrapped is like the YouTube Rewind of music but directed only toward you. It’s your personal compilation of music that you have been listening to for the past year. It is one of Spotify’s most anticipated features. It is released at the end of every year to recap your music taste from the past 12 months. Have you ever wondered if it really takes all 12 months of a year? If so, when do they take the time to compile the data and process it? Let us learn about if and when Spotify Wrapped stops tracking!

What is Spotify Wrapped?

Spotify Wrapped is a campaign that allows Spotify users to view a compilation of data about their activity on the platform over the past year and invites them to share it on social media. Millions of people look forward to checking their Spotify rewind which is why it has such hype around it. 

Spotify Wrapped Tracking Duration

Spotify Wrapped only tracks users from 1st January to 31st October. The music that you listen to during the months of November and December does not affect your Spotify Wrapped stats whatsoever. Although Spotify says that Spotify Wrapped is advertised to track the listening data of its users for a whole year, it does not, in fact, track users for a full year. This gives them time to organize, process, and distribute Spotify Wrapped to hundreds of millions of users. 

Features of Spotify Wrapped

Spotify Wrapped describes your music year in a detailed manner. It includes various information that you wouldn’t know you wanted to know. From who your top artists were to what your favorite music decade was, Spotify Wrapped covers everything about your listening journey. It includes:

  • Top artists,
  • Top songs,
  • Top genres,
  • Top 100 songs in a playlist,
  • Top 1% feature,
  • An astrological birth chart,
  • Your favorite sub-genres and many more!

Spotify Wrapped Date

Another popular question we often ask is “when does Spotify Wrapped come out?”. Ever since it initially came out in 2015, we have seen it come out at the end of each year. You can expect to see it make an annual comeback in early December this year.
