That’s a wrap



With the end of the year comes a time for reflection and looking back on 2021. Spotify Wrapped came out today, in order to help users reflect on the songs, artists, and podcasts listeners have been obsessed with over the past year.

It is that time of year again where everyone is looking back, and reflecting on the past year. Some are looking back through all the memories and new friends that were made, while others are reflecting on all they did (or did not do) to accomplish the year’s resolution. 

Today, Spotify gave us another way to look back on 2021 with the Spotify Wrapped feature. Spotify Wrapped gives users a collection of their top songs, artists, and podcasts from the year.  

In addition to showing each individual user’s top songs and artists, the feature also shares highlights from around the world.
