YouTube Music’s 2022 recap starts rolling out today

“Tis the season for music apps” “year in review” rewinds so you can relive the songs and artists you’ve streamed from the past 12 months. Just a few hours after the revamp arrived, YouTube Music’s 2022 Recap, which begins rolling out today for iOS and Android.

It’s only the second year Alphabet’s music service has offered its personal retrospective, and this time you’ll find it in both the YouTube app and the main app. Unfortunately, it’s not yet live on our devices, but when it’s fully available, you’ll find it by visiting the Recap landing page in YouTube Music or searching for “2022 recap” on YouTube.

Like last year’s edition, the 2022 Recap shows your most streamed artists, songs, music videos and playlists. Additionally, this year’s version adds a few new stats. These include Top Trends (highlighting artists you listened to before most others), Identity (assigning you a “music personality” based on your musical choices), and Hard-to-Find Content (which notices YouTube-exclusive streams like remixes and live performances).

Like other companies’ annual rewinds, YouTube Music uses a story format with cards you can swipe through or share. You can share your personal recap by tapping the arrow at the bottom of each story. Exclusive to the YouTube Music app, you’ll also find shareable cards that show your most streamed songs from each season. And if you want to personalize it further, you can add a slideshow of Google Photos images from each corresponding season.

With Apple and YouTube’s music rewind now available, it’s likely not far behind. It is typically launched at the beginning of December, so we could see it already this week.
