If you’re an avid Spotify user, you might have noticed that there’s no option to change your username in the app. This can be frustrating if you’re looking to update your username to something more relevant or catchy. However, there is still a way to change your username on Spotify, and in this article, we’ll guide you through the steps.
Firstly, open the Spotify app and make sure you’re on the homepage. Then, tap on the settings icon (gear icon) located at the top of the app. From there, tap on “View Profile” and then “Edit Profile.” Here, you can see that you can only edit your display name, which is different from your username.
To change your username, you’ll need to go back to the settings area, and then tap on “Account.” You’ll see that there’s an option for the username, but sadly there’s no edit option available. Instead, tap on the “spotify.com” link under “Manage Account.” This will take you to the website version of the app.
Once on the website version, tap on the hamburger icon (three horizontal lines) located at the top left corner of the page. From there, tap on “Account” and scroll down to the bottom of the page. You’ll see different options, including “Support.” Tap on it, and it will take you to a page with quick links.
Under “Account Help,” tap on “Profile Help.” Here, you’ll see the “Username and Display Name” option, but sadly, it will inform you that the username cannot be changed. Don’t worry; there’s still a way to change it.
Scroll down to the bottom of the page and tap on “Contact Spotify.” You’ll be taken to a page where Spotify shows you the different ways you can contact them. Scroll through them and choose the most appropriate one. You can also choose to message them directly by tapping on the message option.
Type a simple message explaining that you want to change your username and a Spotify representative will get in touch with you immediately.
In conclusion, while it may seem like there’s no option to change your username on Spotify, there’s still a way to do it. Follow the steps we’ve outlined above, and you’ll be able to change your username in no time!
