How to get YouTube Music Recap 2023?

November 8, 2023

For those who love nothing more than seeing their music recap at the end of the year – but wish they didn’t have to wait so long – FreeYourMusic has something for you!

With FreeYourMusic, you can see your YouTube Music listening stats any time of the year – you don’t need to wait until December to see what you’ve been obsessed with in 2023!


What is the YouTube Music Recap?

The yearly music recap has been a big trend across multiple streaming platforms for the last few years, Spotify Wrapped was one of the most popular of the bunch. But YouTube Music has their own version, and while it is newer there are a lot of cool features on it.

Listeners can get some insight into what they have been obsessed with, how many hours of listening they have done – and who their favorite artist really is (are you a secret Swifty?)!

How can I see my YouTube Music Recap for 2023?

When your YouTube Music recap is ready, you’ll get a notification when you open the app – but if you’re not seeing that – what can you do?

To the overview!

  • Open the YouTube Music app and make sure you are logged in.
  • Tap on your profile picture, then look for Your Recap
  • You should be able to see Playlists and Recap stories.


For those who use both Google Photos and YouTube Music, you’ll be able to see a cool feature that links your videos and photos to the music you’ve listened to throughout the year.


Are you more interested in your YouTube recaps instead of the YouTube Music one? Head to the YouTube app on your mobile or tablet and search for the 2023 Recap, although not everyone can get it to work, so check out the YouTube blog for help.

What is included in the YouTube Music Recap?

The YouTube Music wrapped has a whole heap of great stats for you to check out, so you can really get to know how you listen to music.

Here are some of the things you’ll find:

  • The artist that you loved the most for the year.
  • Your top five artists
  • How many hours of music you enjoyed.
  • The songs that you had on repeat for the year.
  • What genre you listened to the most.
  • Cool facts about the artists that you loved the most.
  • How many of the songs you listened to were popular (big hits).
  • Your true music personality – using all of the stats from the recap.

You can share your YouTube Music Recap by heading to the recap screen. You’ll see a 100-track playlist!

Last year, it didn’t automatically save the playlist, so you’ll need to do that manually.

Look for the three dots on the Recap screen, click them, and then tap Add to playlist, find New Playlist, tap it, name your playlist, and then tap Create – and you’re done!

Just like with Spotify Wrapped, you can share your playlist with people. When you are on the Recap screen, tap Watch Now, and then you’ll see a Share button.
