How to view your Spotify stats
As a Spotify user, you’ve probably wondered about your listening habits. How many times did you play that song last month? What genres or musical tastes do you prefer? While Spotify Wrapped gives you an annual rundown, you might be curious about your yearly stats. This guide will show you how to see Spotify stats, whether you’re using the app, the web player, or third-party tools.
Here’s how to check Spotify stats, depending on your device. On the Spotify web player, go to Profile. You’ll see your top artists and tracks for the month. On the Spotify mobile app, go to Settings and enable the Recently played artists feature. Then, go to Profile to see the list.

How to see your stats in the Spotify app
Besides Wrapped, Spotify doesn’t provide detailed statistics like listening time in minutes, but it offers a curated list of your top artists and tracks. You won’t see the exact duration you’ve spent listening to each, but these lists are ordered based on your listening time.
Before viewing the basic stats on your Spotify mobile app, you must enable the ‘Recently Played Artists’ list. This feature allows you to show your recently played artists on your public profile using the following steps:
- From your Spotify mobile app’s home screen, tap on the Settings icon at the top right of the screen.
- Scroll down and enable the Recently played artists option.
After enabling the list, you can see your Spotify stats on your mobile app by following these steps:
- Scroll up and tap on View Profile.
- On your profile page, you can see your recently played artist.
On your profile page, you can only see the top three of your recently played artists, but you can view the list of all the artists you recently listened to, numbering up to 50. Spotify curates the artists on this list based on your recently played songs. You can view your song history by tapping on the History icon from the home screen. [Screenshot]
How to see your stats in the Spotify web player
For how to see Spotify stats on your web player, follow these steps:
- Go to open.spotify.com.
- After logging in, click the User icon on the top-right corner of the webpage and select Profile.
- On your profile page, you can see your top artists and tracks for the month.
Unlike the recently played artists you can view on Spotify’s mobile app, the top artists and tracks list are based on how frequently you listen to them. Click on Show All to see the complete list, showing up to 10 of your top artists and 50 of your top songs.

Frequently asked questions about Spotify stats
Stats for Spotify is a popular third-party tool for viewing your Spotify statistics, but be careful when granting permissions. Ensure you read the agreement page before proceeding with using the tool. It doesn’t use personal data, just your listening metrics.
