How to Find and View Your YouTube Music Recap 2023

We have reached the end of the year, and it is time for music streaming services to celebrate the music you listened to the entire year with a recap. Spotify released Wrapped 2023 a couple of days ago, and now YouTube Music has also given the fans something to celebrate with YouTube Music Recap 2023.

What is YouTube Music Recap?

YouTube Music Recap provides personalized statistics of top artists, songs, genres, playlists, and more. These recaps are based on your music listening history of 2023 and are fetched from both YouTube and YouTube Music. Please note that for this feature to work, you should not delete your YouTube and YouTube Music watch history.

YouTube Music has also introduced some new features this year, including analyzing the type of music you hear and then blending it into a custom album art for a personalized touch. You can also customize your highlights by adding images from Google Photos and sharing the cards on social media. Additionally, YouTube Music will group your music based on the mood, like Fun, Chill, Feel good, etc.
