Apple Music users moan after missing out on Spotify Wrapped 2020 playlist showing their top tracks

SPOTIFY released its annual roundup of people's listening habits today, and music fans who don't use the app are fuming at missing out.

The Spotify Wrapped feature crunches how much you've streamed your favourite tracks and artists and presents them in a slick slideshow.

However, music fans who use other streaming services instead are (obviously) excluded.

Feeling a little left out, a number of those unlucky souls took to social media this morning to have a moan.

One Twitter user wrote: "Y’all i moved to apple music bc it was free for me but now that i’m seeing everyone’s spotify wrapped…."

And a smug Spotify user gloated: "My heart goes out to the apple music users seeing everyone’s spotify wrapped.

"Hopefully the day comes soon when u turn ur life around."

The thing is, Apple does in fact have its own version of Spotify Wrapped, which it calls Replay.

But while some Apple Music fans took solace in this, others blasted the copycat feature for looking a little bare bones.

"I cant believe spotify has wrapped and apple music users get a text list on a grey background where half of the artists images dont load," one Twitter user wrote.

Spotify released its annual Wrapped playlists worldwide on December 2, 2020.

As well as showing users their personal favourite tracks and musicians, the feature provides a roundup of what the world listened to most this year.

The most-popular song on Spotify in 2020 was Canadian singer The Weeknd's Blinding Lights.

It's been streamed almost 1.6billion times.

This was closely followed by the infamous track Dance Monkey by Australian artist Tones and I.

And the world's favourite musician was Puerto Rican rapper Bad Bunny, who netted more than 8.3billion streams this year.

To try out Wrapped, head to the "Home" section on the Spotify app and tap the Spotify Wrapped banner at the top.
