Spotify Only You gives you an astrological reading and more.

  • Spotify’s new “Only You” feature shows how unique your listening tastes are, and gives you a musical astrology reading.
  • Only You compares your favorite artists and genres, and shows you which combinations stand out the most from Spotify’s user base.
  • You can find Only You in Spotify’s iPhone and Android apps, along with a hub of unique playlists.
  • Visit Insider’s Tech Reference library for more stories.

At the end of each year, Spotify releases a personalized playlist called “Spotify Wrapped” that shows you what your favorite songs of the year were. It’s always a fun way to see how your tastes changed, and rediscover songs you might have forgotten.

Every so often, Spotify will come out with a similar personalized feature – this time, they’ve unveiled the “Only You” page.

Only You compares all the songs and artists you have saved, and notes which ones are the most different from one another, and which combinations set you apart from other users. Spotify claims they’ve done this by analyzing every user’s music tastes, and picking out the songs or artists that you listen to together, but no one else does. For example, if you listen to both heavy metal and classical baroque pieces, that might show up.

You’ll also get a faux-astrology reading, and a page where you can find special playlists made just for you.

Here’s how to find and share your personalized Only You list.

It’s that time of year again – the now-familiar Spotify Wrapped roundups have come out, and everyone’s buzzing about what songs they listened to most, who their top artists were, and how they stacked up in terms of branching out in their taste during the unprecedented year of 2020, among many other things. 

If you haven’t heard of Spotify Wrapped, it’s a yearly tradition in which Spotify rounds up all of your listening data from January 1 to October 31 and compiles it into a detailed list of your stats in that time range. This year’s Wrapped 2020 tells you how many new artists you discovered, how many genres you listened to along with several top fives: your five most played songs, your top podcasts (a new feature), and your top artists. 

It also condenses this information into Story-sized bites that are easy to share on your social media, as you’ve probably been seeing already. Your Spotify Wrapped story can only be found on a smartphone for a limited time if you are a subscriber. Here’s how to find and share it. 

How to find your Spotify Wrapped story and playlists

1. To find your Wrapped landing page, you should be able to simply scroll down on Spotify’s homepage, until you see the pink icon that says “Your 2020 Wrapped” next to it. If you’re not logged in, simply enter your credentials.
