YouTube Music launches summer recap [U]
Following the inaugural Seasonal Recap in June, YouTube Music begins rolling out the Summer Edition today.
Update 8/26: Since Friday, more YouTube Music subscribers are seeing the summer recap. It will appear as a card in the home feed or by tapping the profile avatar in the top right and “Your Summary”. The stats are unchanged from before.
As a reminder, be sure to add the Summer Recap ’22 playlist to your library for “listening all year round” all year long. Otherwise, you cannot recover it, like the cards. (Creating a Google Photos album is a good storage solution.)
Update 8/23: After starting to roll out over the weekend, YouTube Music released the summer recap official:
Starting today, you can take a look at the songs that defined your summer with Summer Recap, the latest installment of our personalized experience that gives you a rundown of your top artists, songs, albums, and lists. of reading last season.
It is not yet widely rolled out to the accounts we have verified. Meanwhile, Google released a pair of top ten YouTube charts today:
Methodology: Songs are ranked by global views from May 30, 2022 through August 17, 2022. Totals include all official releases of a song, including the official music video, user-generated content that uses the official song, and videos with lyrics.
Original 8/21: This happens with one month of summer left (in the northern hemisphere), which ends on Thursday, September 22. it now appears for early members.
As before, you might first encounter it as a “Summer Recap is here” card in the welcome stream to “Replay your best summer music and stats.” That said, the first users only receive a “Your Recap” playlist, which last time had 50 songs. Yellow is the predominant color in the clutch compared to purple for spring.
The carousel of stat cards that can be easily shared and saved does not appear yet. You will eventually get the top five songs, artists, playlists, albums, and genres (only three).
Another way to check for your summer recap, tap the profile avatar in the top-right corner, then tap “Your Recap” under “History.” The Spring Summary is still showing for the vast majority of people, who had the following eligibility requirements:
To view your 2022 Season Recap, you must have at least two hours of music listening time on YouTube and/or YouTube Music between March 1, 2022 and May 20, 2022.
Starting with the former, YouTube Music could make the Summer Recap widely available by mid-September.
