As summer draws to a close, YouTube Music shows users exactly which songs, artists, and albums they’ve been listening to in recent months.
youtube music has now added a summer recap for users to view. This isn’t the first time the music app has done a seasonal recap like this. Earlier this year, a spring recap of YouTube Music was released. At the time, Google confirmed that it would start making recaps available for each season in the future.
Apart from its now seasonal recaps, YouTube Music also provides users with insight into their music habits through an annual recap. Of course, YouTube Music isn’t the only music service to do so, with the whole “year in review” widely kicked off by Spotify and its annual Spotify Wrapped campaign. Be it Spofity or YouTube Music, these music streaming services make it super easy for users to share their recaps with others.
