Following last year’s first annual recap and subsequent seasonal recaps, YouTube Music begins rolling out the 2022 recap today.
Update 12/2:Be on the lookout for an email from YouTube Music — “2022 Recap: Relive Your Year in Music” — with a handful of additional stats not available in Stories.
This includes the number of artists and songs you’ve listened to, as well as your top three albums. You will also notice that the minutes statistic is more up-to-date.
Google also explains how “you will need to have at least 10 hours of music listening time on YouTube platforms from January 1, 2022 through November 15, 2022” to be eligible. Also, the ability to “check your top genres” is only available to Premium members.
Update 11/30: The updated ‘Your Summary’ page – which is available on YouTube for Android/iOS by tapping on your profile avatar – for 2022 starts with a ‘Watch Now’ button that launches the story viewer. There is greater availability today. You can save stats pages to your device or share them directly at the bottom.
They include: this year’s music minutes, top artist, top 0.1% of [artist] listeners, top 5 artists, top track (with count), main YouTube “liked” live performances, top 5 tracks, top 5 genres, On Trend vs. Deep Cuts, On Repeat vs. Exploring, Chill vs. Amped, Music Personality, and Final Recap (with Personality, Top Artists, and Tracks).
Next comes the integration of Google Photos to create a musical photo album. Start by tapping the Connect card above the carousel to enable it in privacy and location settings. You can then save and share a card that rates your favorite song for Winter, Spring, Summer, and Fall that features three library images from that time period.
Finally, you have past recaps, including a new Fall ’22 recap, in addition to the 2022 recap, which is organized by your stream count. Be sure to save both to your library for posterity.
There’s also a hit YouTube Music playlist carousel for 2022: [all] Hits, Hip Hot, Indie, Alternative, Pop, Dance & Electronic, Rock, Metal, R&B, Country, K-Pop, Música Mexicana, Música Tropical, Rock Latino, Latino.
Original 11/29: As before, you can access it by opening YouTube Music for Android or iOS and tapping your profile avatar in the top right corner. The Recap page hosts a feed “highlighting your best songs from each season” and other key highlights, including top artists, tracks, music videos and playlists. When sharing, a new Google Photos integration will let you combine “music and memories for a nostalgic look back at your year”.
Meanwhile, the YouTube Music 2022 Recap features new custom stats. Main trends will show “which artist you discovered before most other users”, while Identify creates a “Musical Personality” that “captures your musical vibe, based on your listening habits”.
Finally, this page will also show remixes, live performances, and other “unique to YouTube content” you’ve been listening to this year. This Content hard to find will allow YouTube to showcase its library advantage when users share their summaries.
Similarly, Google is bringing this experience to the core YouTube app to let “even more users connect with their personalized playlists, stats, and stories to share.” Similar to the memories at the top of Google Photos or any other social media story format, these cards are heavily geared toward sharing with an included yt.be/music/Recap URL.
Easily share your 2022 summary stories and stats with apps such as Instagram, Twitter or Facebook by simply tapping the arrow at the bottom of each story.
To access it, open YouTube for Android or iOS and search for “2022 Recap” to get your playlist and stories.
