When it comes to social media, you can use your Stories to take a look back at what’s happened on Instagram for you over the last 12 months. In December, you should see a big Playback banner appear in the app when you open it, and you can tap View Playback to see it. Otherwise, you can find it by viewing someone else’s year in review and tapping on the 2021 sticker.
Playback will show you 10 highlights from your Stories over the past year, but Instagram doesn’t share how they’re picked. You can, however, edit the picks—either tap and hold on a Story and then select the trash can icon to remove an image or video, or tap the plus button to add one. You can also share the Playback reel with your Instagram contacts, if you’d like to.
Not every app has a year in review feature: After showing personal recaps in 2020, TikTok settled for a general overview this year, for example. It’s also worth bearing in mind that some of these highlights packages can only be viewed for a limited amount of time, so if you can’t find yours, it might be too late.
But plenty of apps let you look back at your viewing or listening history even if they don’t do year-end roundups. In the YouTube app, for example, tap Library and History to see what you’ve been watching; in the Netflix app, tap your profile picture (top right), then Account, your account name, and View (next to Viewing activity). There are also many ways to manually record the content you’re consuming.
