YouTube Music is one of the leading music streaming platforms and comes with a YouTube Premium subscription; this makes this a wise purchase if you use both services. Like Spotify, it works across platforms and devices, including smartphones, tablets, computers, and Chromebooks. The service also provides a seasonal and annual Summary of your top songs and artists.

Each Summary is individual and based on your preferences and the songs you’ve listened to during that season or year. For nostalgia’s sake, it’s fun to browse through these and rediscover your favorite songs from the past season or year. Let’s see how it’s done.

What are YouTube Music Recaps?

YouTube Music Highlights are the most popular songs and artists you’ve listened to for a season and a year. Summaries are specific to your YouTube Music profile and account. These are based on your music listening history on both YouTube Music and YouTube. Because summaries are based on the music you’re listening to, a few prerequisites are required for the feature to work properly.

First of all, you should not delete your YouTube Music and YouTube viewing history manually or automatically. Similarly, to compile Recaps, you need to listen to a sufficient amount of music, at least four hours per season. Finally, if you mostly listen to kids’ music, this feature may not work.

Access your YouTube Music Feed

Now that you know what Summaries are, let’s see how you can access them.

  1. Open the YouTube Music app on your smartphone  .
  2. Tap your profile picture in the upper right corner  .
  3. Tap Your summaries .
  4. Here you can see your Summary stories and playlists. Stories summarize the best artists, genres and music you listen to. Playlists are the top 50 songs you listened to during a particular season or year.
  5. And if you use Google Photos and YouTube Music, you can see highlights of your favorite songs linked to photos and videos you’ve taken throughout the season or year.

Sharing Your Music Summary

Sharing your summaries is easy and a fun way to highlight last season’s best songs. You can share your recap stories as a roundup of your favorite songs, albums, and genres, useful on social media or when texting someone, or share a full playlist of the season’s top 50 songs.
