'Spotify Wrapped' 2021 has arrived and these are the global music results.
Spotify Wrapped takes its users' listening data and turns it into games and an "audio aura" reading.
MORE IN THIS SECTION
On Dec. 1, Spotify launched its highly anticipated Wrapped experience for the third year in a row, revealing the artists and albums most listened to by each user during 2021.
This year, it adds even more social media features that help users share their favorite music with a personalized movie, aura and letters. Naturally, they can share Spotify's self-created images on their timelines and, for the first time, directly on TikTok.
As usual, the Wrapped experience also summarizes top artists, genres, songs and podcasts, plus total minutes listened on Spotify.
Personal Wrapped experiences this year include:
Audio Aura: Spotify has tapped an "aura reader" to visualize users' top two musical moods of the year.
"Two Truths and a Lie" cards: a data-driven interactive game that displays three facts about what users listened to in the year. They must guess which one is false about themselves.
2021 The Movie: Spotify combed through users' data to create the soundtrack of their life for the year, figuring out the songs that fit one's opening credits, fight scenes, epic workout montages and other cinematic moments.
2021 Wrapped Blend: Leveraging the Blend playlists feature Spotify launched earlier this year, users can compare their top 2021 music trends with their friends.
