Spotify looks back on your Year in Music

Spotify has launched a slick new web tool that reflects on your own personal ‘Year in Music.’

It’s that time of year where the ‘best of’ lists begin to come thick and fast, as we all reflect on the previous 12 months of rampant tech use.

Top music streaming service Spotify is no different, and it’s just launched a new feature called Year in Music. It offers a look back at what subscribers have been listening to at various points in 2015.

The Year in Music tool also provides a breakdown of how much time you spent listening to music, how many tracks you listened to, and wider trends like the top artists of the year.

Selecting ‘Share’ will generate a snapshot of your listening year, which you can then post to a social network of your choice.

Spotify will also provide a personalised playlist of tracks you might enjoy moving into the New Year, based on your 2015 listening habits. All you need to do is select select ‘Play It Forward’ for your custom playlist.

It’s easy to see why Spotify might be in something of a celebratory mood, having seen off the threat of Apple Music and Tidal with nary a dent (or so it seems) to its subscriber numbers this calendar year.
