It’s December, the most wonderful time of the year for YouTube Music Exclusive 2021. With the holidays fast approaching and holiday lists about to take over the internet, it is surely time to reflect on what we have been up to over the past year.
Spotify Wrapped is a great way to see all the music you have been listening to in 2021, even if it’s been mercilessly mocked for its cringe use of language this year. If you’re using YouTube Music instead, you’ll be happy to know that it has a similar feature, although its release is as slow as molasses.
YouTube Music Exclusive 2021
It does appear to be a little more impressive than last year’s version, but why YouTube is so slow to roll it out more widely is a mystery. It’s only available in the mobile app, so if you try to access it from the web (using this link https://music.youtube.com/recap — via u/JoshSpires), you’ll be greeted with a notice telling you to use the app.
To see if you have it, tap on your profile photo and it should be in the list between History and Paid memberships. As pointed out by TeamYouTube on Twitter, you need to have at least 10 hours of listening time under your belt to get the Recap, which might explain why I don’t see it as I use Spotify mostly.
Being on the latest version of the YouTube Music app should help your chances you can grab v4.55.55 from APK Mirror if it’s not arrived via the Play Store yet. Some users say they didn’t get the 2020 Recap until some time in January this year, so this slow rollout is no surprise. As evidenced by the many complaints on Reddit, users aren’t happy about seeing their Spotify-using friends have all the fun.
My YouTube is all about you owning a YouTube channel. You can watch and like videos and subscribe to channels with a Google Account.
But without a YouTube channel, you have no public presence on YouTube. Even if you have a Google Account, you need to create a YouTube channel to upload videos, comment, or make playlists. You can create your own channel on either the YouTube website or the YouTube mobile site.
