It’s almost the end of the year and that means it’s time for roundups of all our favorite social media apps.

2022 was the year that social media newcomer BeReal stepped into the spotlight. So a summary of our moments in the app is a welcome addition.

BeReal users can now look back on their BeReal moments thanks to the Recap Video feature.

The app collects all your 2022 honest news from your BeReal memories in one video summary.

This year was a big one for the French social media app, which dominated social media conversations during major world events such as the Queen’s funeral.

If you’ve already noticed that your social feeds are filled with your friends’ BeReal collection videos, here’s how to get involved:

Last month, Spotify has begun releasing its annual Spotify Wrapped roundup feature, which allows users to view and share their top artists, tracks and genres from throughout the year.

This week, Instagram released a brand new Reels template called 2022 Recap that allows people to reflect on memories shared through the app this year.
