One of Spotify’s best features is Spotify stats. Spotify stats provide details on your listening habits. It shows your favorite artists, tracks, and your favorite music genres.
Spotify stats also show you the time periods you spent listening to tracks, artists, and genres.
You can check your Spotify stats on Spotify itself or by using a third-party app. And this article will show you how.
Spotify Wrapped is an end-of-the-year release by Spotify that shows you detailed stats on your Spotify listening habits for the past year.
