How has the year of 2015 reflected on your music tastes and listening? Find out with Spotify’s personalised ‘Year in Music’.
Year in Music is Spotify’s new browser feature that shows how the past year of music went for you on Spotify. Year in Music shows your favourites and habits from around the year and gives you a rundown of your top artists, tracks, albums and genres.
Once you have logged in to the webpage you can scroll down through the various sections of your Year, starting with the first song you listened to this year on Spotify. You also get to see your aggregated statistics, such as total time listening to music, total artists, total tracks and you get the idea. If you’re happy enough with the results or want to proudly show off your Year in Music you can share various sections on social media.
