If you’re an Apple Music subscriber and feel left out by the plethora of Spotify Wrapped ‘year in review’ posts, there’s a workaround for you.
Unlike Wrapped, which compiles your top 100 Spotify songs of the year in a playlist, calculates how many total minutes you streamed, and collates the number of new artists you discovered, the Apple Music workaround is undeniably simpler.
Using Music Year In Review, you can generate a card showing how long you’ve spent listening to your favourite artist, your top genre/artist/song, and your top five songs and artists on Apple’s streaming service.
That’s about it, but you can share these stats in a social media-friendly image direct to Instagram or Twitter.
If the data doesn’t go deep enough for you, there are alternative apps in snd.wave and Play Time, which offers up more detail about your listening habits, albeit without the pretty card format that Music Year In Review offers.
All these points to Apple Music needing its very own native ‘year in review’ feature, which, given how widely shared Spotify’s Wrapped has been, seems like a no-brainer.
