Currently, the internet is full of speculation about the Spotify Wrapped 2022 release date. Some users even claim that Spotify support confirmed a date: November 30 (today):
The screenshot above looks a bit sketchy, plus it’s unlikely team support will reveal that information as it hasn’t happened before. The annual Spotify Wrapped usually comes ‘as a surprise’.
However, the dates of the Wrapped rollout have typically been within the first 6 days of December every year.
For reference, these have been the release dates for Spotify Wrapped since 2017:
2021 – December 1 2020 – December 2 2019 – December 5 2018 – December 6 2017 – December 6
Multiple Spotify users are also aware of this trend. So, their predictions suggest that it will be available during the first week of December, with some leaning towards December 1 as the safest bet.
Based on the launch trends that the company has followed, it is quite likely that, if all goes well, users will start getting the Spotify Wrapped 2022 notification during the first days of December.
Update 1 (December 1, 2022)
04:24 pm (IST): Spotify has announced on its official website that they have released the Spotify Wrapped listening personality and Audio day. More on that here.
Update 2 (December 2, 2022)
12:24 pm (IST): Some Spotify users are wondering whether December month’s stats will be counted or not (1,2,3,4).
Well according to SpotifyCares, Wrapped only covers the 1st of January until the 31st of October for any given year.
Hey Stephen! We’re afraid that listening to a bunch of stuff right now won’t make any difference to this year’s or next year’s Wrapped. This is because Wrapped only covers the 1st of January until the 31st of October for any given year. Hope this clears things up /GK
Furthermore, several Spotify users are receiving an email that says ‘You were in the top 0.005 percent’ of an artist’s listeners (1,2,3,4).
This stirred up their interest since it signified that they had spent 99.95% more time streaming that artist than the wider fanbase.
