My 2017 Wrapped from Spotify names your favourite songs of the year

By Jack Rear

From a small digital disruptor, Spotify has grown to become one of the largest music platforms in the world.

One of the hallmarks of Spotify’s success is its focus not just music but also personalisation. From personalised playlists based on listeners’ habits to recommendations – personalised content is king at Spotify.

One of the most eagerly anticipated personal features in Spotify’s calendar is Spotify Wrapped.

At the end of each year, Spotify presents its users with ‘My YEAR Wrapped’. Obviously, this year it’s My 2017 Wrapped.

What is My 2017 Wrapped?

This feature shows users interesting stats about their own personal listening habits. Listeners will find how many minutes they listened to, how many different songs, how many different artists, and how many genres they heard. The stats also suggest findings about users’ personalities. For example, it might define one person as an ‘explorer’ while another might prefer to stick to the classics.

Before users get into all this though, they face a quiz about themselves. Do you know yourself better than Spotify’s algorithms do? Will you be able to guess your most listened-to song, artist, and also album of year?

Once the truth is revealed, listeners will also be given a personalized playlist of their favourite songs, artists, and albums of the year.

How to find My 2017 Wrapped on Spotify:

Finding your own personal 2017 Wrapped couldn’t be easier. Spotify have made a handy website that presents all the information to you in addition to some neat little graphics. The website also gives you goals to try in 2017 in order to expand your musical horizons.
