Spotify constantly collects data about how you use and listen to music on the app. Thanks to the popular website ‘Stats for Spotify,’ you can easily see what all of that data looks like. This is something Spotify already does really well with Spotify Wrapped. Each December, Spotify Wrapped looks at users’ streaming data, finds the most interesting tidbits, and turns it into a fun, interactive experience.
But Wrapped isn’t the only way you can see what your Spotify listening looks like. There are also third-party websites that offer their own insight into your Spotify profile. Obscurify, for example, highlights users’ most obscure artists and tracks. It also shows your favorite genres, top all-time artists, and more. If you don’t feel like waiting for Spotify Wrapped each year, Obscurify is a fun way to get a quick overview of your tastes/preferences.

Another website that does this is ‘Stats for Spotify.’ Stats for Spotify does exactly what the name implies. Once users link their Spotify account with the website, Stats for Spotify shows a bunch of stats for your Spotify account — including your most played tracks, favorite artists, how your music tastes change over time, and more. It’s free, easy to use, and takes just a couple of seconds to set up.
How To Use Stats For Spotify
To get started, all you need to do is visit ‘statsforspotify.com’ on a phone, tablet, or computer. Click/tap the green ‘Login with Spotify’ button at the top of the screen, enter your Spotify credentials if you aren’t already logged in, and click the green ‘Agree’ button towards the bottom of the screen. This lets Stats for Spotify view your Spotify account data, view your Spotify activity, and take certain actions on your behalf (such as creating playlists and following artists). After selecting the ‘Agree’ button, you should be back on the Stats for Spotify website — this time with three new buttons at the top of the screen. You can choose Top Tracks, Top Artists, or Top Genres. Each section shows your stats for the last four weeks, the last six months, and your all-time listening history.
The Top Tracks page shows up to 50 of your favorite songs, organizing them by most to least popular. It shows the name of the song, the artist, and its respective album artwork. If you scroll to the bottom of the page, clicking ‘Create playlist’ automatically creates a playlist of those songs. Next, clicking ‘View playlist’ lets you immediately start listening to the new playlist on Spotify. The Top Artists page is very similar. It shows up to 50 of your most played artists in numerical order. There’s no playlist shortcut here, but clicking an artist takes you directly to their Spotify profile page. Lastly, the Top Genres page shows a graph of your favorite music genres.
If you like Stats for Spotify, the website will stay updated with all of your Spotify activity so you can watch your style change and grow over time. But if you’d rather the site no longer have access to your account, revoking its permissions is easy. Click the ‘Account’ button at the top of the Stats for Spotify website, click ‘Manage,’ click ‘Data,’ click ‘Delete account,’ and click ‘Delete account’ again on the pop-up. Just like that, your Stats for Spotify account is deleted.
