Wrapping Up Spotify’s Data Collection Season


Lauren Benton

It’s that time of year again: Spotify will finish the collection of your listening data for their annual Spotify Wrapped next week on Monday, October 31st.

Spotify has provided these analyses of their user’s listening habits since 2017, and since then, it has become an annual seasonal craze for listeners to share their results on social media and with their peers.

Though it is typically ready in the first week of December, Spotify Wrapped has been released a day or two earlier each year. This year, it is predicted to be released on December 1st.

For those concerned about tailoring their playlists and songs to make their Spotify Wrapped as good as it can get, it is important to note that Spotify only uses data from January 1st to October 31st. Whatever you listen to on repeat after Halloween will not count for your analysis.
