How to find your YouTube Music Year in Review for 2022

YouTube Music has begin rolling out its Recap feature, for the second year in a row. It’s a feature that competitors like Spotify have rolled out for quite a few years, around December. And now YouTube Music has gotten into the game. But how can you find your YouTube Music Recap and its playlists? That’s what we’re here to show you how to do. In this article, we’ll show you how you can access your Recap and see how you listened to music in 2022.

What is YouTube Music Recap?

YouTube Music’s recap feature is exactly what it sounds like. It’s a recap of the music, artists and genres that you listened to over the past year. Technically, it’s just January through November. Since the recap does come out right at the beginning of December. So obviously, December is not included in the Recap.

New in 2022, YouTube Music Recap is available in the YouTube Music app as well as the regular YouTube app. You can just search for “recap” on YouTube to find it. YouTube Music is also introducing some new personalized stats. These include Top Trends, Identity and Hard to Find Content. Finally, Google is also integrating Google Photos (only in the YouTube Music app). So you’ll see shareable cards highlighting your top songs from each season. You can also choose to personalize them by adding your own images from Google Photos.

Otherwise, your Recap will show you how much time you spent listening to your most popular artists, genres and playlists. And even create a playlist of your most listened to songs for the year. Which is one of my favorite features.

How to find your Year in Review Recap on YouTube Music

In the YouTube Music app. You can find the YouTube Music Recap pretty easily. Here’s how to do it:

  • Tap on your profile picture in the upper-right corner.
  • Next, tap on “Your Recap”.
    • Or you can search “2022 Recap”
  • From here, you should see your 2022 Recap. If you see “Nothing to hear here”, then it’s not yet available for your account.
  • And that’s it. You can check out your Recap as many times as you’d like and even add these playlists to your library.
