Spotify Wrapped: How to play your top songs for 2019, and the decade

  Spotify Wrapped: How to play your top songs for 2019, and the decade I took the Spotify Wrapped test, turns out I'm 100% still into screamo.Yes, like your drunk-but-actually-kind-of-cool uncle, Spotify turns up at the end of every year to remind you of the most embarrassing (musical) moments from the preceding 12 months.

This best time of the year is upon us. Thanksgiving is done, Black Friday is over and now the most important event of the year begins: Spotify Wrapped.

Last week, Spotify, the streaming music giant, released its Best Of lists for 2019, which showed the world was listening to a whole lot of Post Malone and Billie Eilish in 2019. But Spotify also sifts through the treasure trove of data we willingly hand to it to make personal recounts for every single user.

Yes, like your drunk-but-actually-kind-of-cool uncle, Spotify turns up at the end of every year to remind you of the most embarrassing (musical) moments from the preceding 12 months. Did you pump Lizzo bangers all year? Did you dive deep on Mozart? Or did you go through My Chemical Romance's back catalog start-to-finish in a foolish attempt to regain your youth?

OK, maybe that's just me.

Spotify Wrapped has become an annual institution and gives you a look back at exactly where you spent most of your musical minutes through the year. But because we are ticking over into 2020 in just a few weeks time, Spotify has also included your picks of the decade.

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 account.

My picks are grim and I don't want to talk about them. But you might!

Spotify beats Apple at its own game with its Wrapped year in review feature

  Spotify beats Apple at its own game with its Wrapped year in review feature An exclusive for Spotify users, not Apple Music fansSpotify users can revisit their top artists of the year, top songs, and, because 2019 also marks the end of a decade, their most consumed music over the past 10 years. Conveniently, the roundup is already formatted like an Instagram Story on the Spotify mobile app, and users can tap to share their recaps directly to their stories from Spotify. The Wrapped recaps have gone mildly viral with seemingly everyone sharing theirs. It’s even a Twitter Moment.

If you want to find your personalized playlist -- which will show you your top 100 tracks of 2019 then:

  • Go to the Spotify Wrapped site and punch in your login details. You'll be able to open the playlist during the slideshow. It really is that simple.
  • Or head to the Spotify mobile app, go to "Search" and you'll find the "Wrapped 2019" card in pretty pink, ready to go.

Sadly, you don't get your own "Best of the Decade" playlist, but one that is shared with a lot of other users. A kind of "curated selection" of the best cuts that will suit you, it appears.

If you happen to be a recording artist and want to know where Spotify took your music this year then, there's also a handy page detailing how you can do just that.

Users across the world are slowly discovering Wrapped and, of course, people are gearing up to discuss their top artists (or not).

Spotify's Magic Leap app lets you virtually pin music on the wall .
By this point, most people have used Spotify on almost every platform where it's available and there's not a lot about the experience that's surprising. So it's interesting then to see how, with the help of augmented reality startup Magic Leap, Spotify has managed to think of a new way to organize your music library. With the company's new Magic Leap app, you can pin albums, artists and tracks to specific locations in your home. In this way, you can create a different soundscape for each room.
