YouTube has rolled out a Spotify Wrapped-style annual recap at the end of last yearbut now YouTube owner Google is taking the concept further with seasonal previews.

The publication of Spotify’s annual recaps usually marks a few pleasant days on the internet each year – it’s always fun to judge carefully observe what music people listen to the most. It looks like YouTube is trying to make this shared experience a more frequent tradition, though I’ve yet to see any YouTube Music recaps cross my Twitter timeline.

If you have a recap available, please share it. I’d return the favor, but scanning my own YouTube Music page, the recap doesn’t seem to show up. I recently re-subscribed to Apple Music and would gift my 2022 Apple Music Replay playlist, but the service tells me I haven’t listened to enough music yet to generate one. Ouch.
