Adding Picture to Profile

It seems like I should be able to add my picture to the profile but I can't.  Is this feature only available if you link it to your facebook?

 

If there's a way to add profile pictures WITHOUT linking to Facebook please let me know.

 

THANKS!!

Re: Adding Picture to Profile

Hey!

 

At the minute, the picture in a Spotify profile is a copy of your Facebook profile picture. You cannot currently add a photo through Spotify.

 

If you'd like to make it an 'Idea' (I think you should, a separate picture function could be pretty cool), just head to the 'Spotify Ideas and Feedback' section of the Community. Post it here, then you'll then be able to see who agrees with you.

Thanks!! For those of us that had Spotify BEFORE it was part of Facebook we like not having to integrate it.  I shall post the suggestion as you stated.

 

Have a great day!

Re: Adding Picture to Profile

Spotify wants me to sign up for their service, but I can only have a profile photo if I link to a facebook account which I refuse to sign up for? No thank you.

Re: Adding Picture to Profile

If you are a new user, you can't sign up for Spotify at all without a Facebook account.

 

Which makes me wonder how you're posting here.

The bad part is it doesnt even show your facebook photo even when you log in to facebook and spotify.

Jckinnick - For your Facebook photo to pop up, you'll need to connect your Spotify and Facebook accounts from inside your Spotify. After this, you'll see your nice little picture in the corner of Spotify.

Re: Adding Picture to Profile

Jckinnick - According to your account, you're not linked up. Log onto Spotify using your username 'jckinnick', then head to 'Preferences' (under 'Edit'), and scroll down to 'Connect to Facebook'. Input your details here and you'll be on your way.
