YouTube Music publishes comprehensive 2021 recap and playlist
In 2020, Google’s streaming service offered a “Year in Review” playlist, while a handful of users received an email with top stats. The YouTube Music 2021 recap seems to be much more comprehensive and finally on par with other apps.
This has not yet become widely available, but some users see a “2021 recap” that lets them “Relive your year in music with your favorite songs.” There are 100 tracks with this playlist that can be shared via link. It is unclear if they are sorted by game count.
In the meantime, if you have this playlist, by tapping your profile avatar in the upper right corner, you will discover a “2021Recap” displayed between “History” and “Paid Memberships.” The aforementioned playlist appears first, while YouTube Music then highlights important listening statistics.
This names your top artist and playlist with how many minutes you listened, as well as your top song with the number of plays. You are able to quickly download and share this graphic. There is then a more detailed division of the top track with the option to save and share.
Google then lists a song and artists you “discovered” in 2021, while noting your “Topmix” and video at the very end.
As December soon approaches, YouTube Music is likely to increase the availability of 2021 recap in the coming days. In terms of year-end assignments, YTM also still lacks its new Material You widget. Meanwhile, after several years, Google’s service looks set to finally compete with Spotify Wrapped and Apple Music Replay.
