Wynk Music, India’s number 1 music streaming app by downloads and daily active users, today, unveiled its Wynk Rewind 2023 – announcing the top artists, albums and songs to have ruled the Indian music scene this year. 

Wynk Rewind 2023 collates the top artists, albums, songs and playlists played on Wynk music over the course of a particular year. Powered by an Artificial Intelligence (AI) algorithm it draws out the music consumption patterns of users and offers Wynk users a personalised user experience on the app, delivering trends that offer a detailed view into listening patterns across total minutes streamed, favourite songs and artists, all of which can be shared across social media platforms. 

This year’s Rewind carries special features such as the musical zodiac, a receive activity badge based on fan consumption that helps fans get to know who they are superfans of. Additionally, it will also present Wynk listeners with a special playlist featuring all their top songs along with a special message video featuring their favorite artist.
