Spotify’spersonal listings, which we look forward to at the end of each year, were published yesterday. Sharing information with us, from the songs we listen to the most to the artists and podcasts we listen to the most, Spotify also allowed us to share these lists via social media. Yesterday, it was possible to come across many Spotify users’ personal end-of-year lists on platforms such as Twitter and Instagram.
However, Apple Music users are a little upset about this. Apple Music offers a similar feature to Spotify, but it fails in design, making its users unhappy. This year’s summaries of Spotify included not only personalized music listening statistics for each user for 2019, but also a review of listening choices from the last decade. So Spotify allows you to see who you’ve listened to more in the last decade, like the total number of music you’ve listened to. In addition, Spotify created custom playlists for each user and presented all slides of the annual summary in the form of shareable graphics. All these facilities made it easier for users to share on social media.
Replay in Apple Music offers less data than Spotify’s, and doesn’t show its users listening statistics like Spotify does. Some users of the Apple service described it as disappointing that they were unable to share their year-end list, as Spotify users did. As such, both globally and in our country, Apple Music users began to revolt mixed with humor on Twitter. Funny shares like the ones that came out.
If you’re a Spotify user, you can access your 2019 Summary here, and if you’re an Apple Music user, you can find Apple Music Replay here.
