We know that our interest and taste in music reflect our personality. Spotify had allowed us to customize music playlists according to our choices for a long time but now there is more to it. You can also customize your Spotify profile by adding a display photo and choosing a cool display name as well matching your personality.
The main point making Spotify unique is that it doesn’t sell music, but only gives access to stream it online. It also pays music artists on the basis of their number of get playlist followers and views etc. To get monetized many people want to change their name to something more professional or artistic from any cute, random name they chose in their teenage years abruptly.
In recent years, Spotify has changed its policy. Now, the display name is shown to your friends and followers. You can choose this display name yourself but your username is generated by Spotify. It doesn’t allow you to change your username anymore but what matters is the display name. If you want to know how to change your Spotify username and display name, we have an easy and simple guide for you.
There are two easy ways to change the display name:
1-Connect your Spotify with Facebook
By connecting your Spotify to your Facebook account, the user name on Facebook automatically replaces your existing username on Spotify. You can either directly sign up on Spotify using your Facebook account or you can connect an old and current account to Facebook.
- To connect using a desktop:
Open your Spotify account and go to the settings by clicking on the small arrow on the right side of your name and picture.
There you will see the section on social settings.
Now it will ask for the login password and details of your Facebook account. Log into it
Now that you are connected to Facebook, your name on Spotify will change automatically.
Connect using android/iOS
Open your Spotify app and go to “home”.
After opening settings you have to click on the “ connect with Facebook” button given under the social section.
Give your login details now and log into your Facebook account.
It will automatically connect to your Facebook account now and change your Spotify username to your Facebook name.
Sign up a new account with Facebook:
Open the Spotify website or app. It will bring out the options to log in or signup.
Click on the “sign up” and a page requiring your credentials will open.
There is the option of “ signup with Facebook” at the bottom. Click on it and give the login details of your Facebook account.
It will now create a new account on Spotify with the username of connected Facebook account.
Changing it on Spotify
Unlike your username which is only changed with the help of Facebook, changing the display name is easy.
Open the Spotify account and go to the little arrow on the right side of the screen with your name and display picture.
Click on it and you will see a menu drop down in front of you. Go to “profile” from this menu
You will now see your Spotify profile on the screen with your display name written at the top.
Click on the Display name to erase it and write your new name.
Click on save after writing. It’s just as simple as that.
Open the Spotify app and go to your “home” page.
There is a settings icon on the top of your Home Page. open the settings by clicking on it.
Go to “View Profile” which is written below your Display picture.
You will see “Edit Profile” written on the screen. By clicking on it you can update or edit your display picture and name.
Your name just like in this world also represents you in the digital world of social media so choose it wisely. You can change it anytime with the above-mentioned steps but if any of these don’t work, you can create a new account and request data transfer from Spotify. However, it may result in loss of your subscriptions and some playlists so we don’t recommend it.
