How deep does the iceberg of your music taste go?
That’s the question everyone on my Instagram and Twitter appears to be trying to answer with a new way Spotify listeners can analyze their music. Icebergify is a tool that shows all of your favorite artists on Spotify in a chart that looks a lot like — you guessed it — an iceberg. It’s the latest viral Spotify tool following closely behind the Spotify Pie chart that picked up a lot of attention earlier this month.
What is the Spotify Icebergify?
Icebergify collects data from your top 50 artists in your short-term, medium-term, and long-term listening trends, according to Icebergify. So the artists on your chart might be musicians you haven’t listened to in a few months, or maybe are bands you’ve only just started listening to now.
It looks at those top artists and organizes them by their popularity or obscurity, and then pops them into an iceberg category. For instance, if you listen to a lot of Ed Sheeran, he’ll go into the top iceberg level because he’s one of the most popular artists out there. But if you listen to a lot of Antichrist Siege Machine, they’ll be closer to the bottom. If you don’t listen to any artists in a certain level of popularity, the level will just show up blank — so you might want to work on diversifying your music taste before you share.
How to get your Spotify Icebergify
Like most Spotify music analyzing tools, all you have to do is go to a website, give them some permissions to check out your Spotify account, and you’ve got an iceberg-shaped chart to share with your friends and enemies.
Go to Icebergify.com for this tool, but be warned — it took a few of us at Mashable a couple of tries before it worked. Just keep refreshing the site and it’ll eventually work. You might have to clear your cookies and site data and try a few more times. To save the image, screenshot it, hold down it on your phone, or right-click it on your laptop or PC.
By using this tool you will give the folks behind Icebergify your data, so if your streaming data is something you’d rather keep private for whatever reason, you may want to sit this out.
Who created Icebergify?
According to the Icebergify site, it was created by Akshay Raj in 2022. His name is linked out to a private Instagram.
