AS 2021 comes to a close, it’s time to look back on the better moments of the past 12 months.
With an almost normal summer to enjoy, ending of restrictions – before they came back with a vengeance – there were lots of happier moments to share on social media again.Instagram’s Year In Review takes inspiration from Spotify’s own feature[/caption]
Many users are reliving some of the good times of 2021 using Instagram’s Year In Review feature.
It’s a bit like Spotify’s popular music in review, which shows your most listened tunes.
But it’s only around for a limited time.
Playback, as it’s officially called, curates ten of your Instagram Stories of the year.
Even though it’s put together automatically, you can remove the bits you don’t like and add others instead.
A message should have started to appear on the Instagram feed from around December 10.

If you don’t see it – or accidentally cleared it – there is a workaround but it might require some work, and luck.
How do I add Instagram’s Playback Year In Review?
If any friends have posted their Playback Year In Review then you can tap a special 2021 sticker that should appear.
This will allow you to build your own.
If none of your mates have posted one, then your luck is running out.
You could try and find someone else who has posted it on their story but you may end up searching forever and find nothing.
Given how basic the feature is, it might just be worth building your own Instagram Story of highlights.
All your stories are stored in the Archive part of the app, so you can do it all yourself instead.
