Re: Change username?

There isn't a way to change your username I'm afraid. You may to have create a new account (though in that case your username would be your Facebook email address)

Re: Change username?

Hi,

I would like to change my username as well, and my subscription to Spotify lapsed a while ago when I got a new credit card and didn't change the numbers... I had intended to start a new account with a new username, but I don't have a Facebook account, and do not want one, not even a fake one. Does one have to open a Facebook account to have an account with Spotify now? It wasn't the case when I first subscribed. This obligation doesn't seem right to me. Have other people felt the same?

Thank you for any help...

Re: Change username?

Is there still no way to change your username and profile picture?

 

My Username is a bunch of numbers. 

I have no profile picture.

There are very few "people" under "everyone". 

The friends that are shows only have numbers and no profile pictures.

 

I have Spotify on 2 laptops (one with proxy, one without), 1 iPhone and 1 iPad. It is the same for all devices. 

 

Please advise.

Re: Change username?

Have had no reply on here and no reply to my support ticket... not happy (I'm paying £9.99 a month and they can't reply to my ticket?!)

UPDATE: Spotify seemed to have vanished from my laptop so have had to redownload it... 

 

My name and profile image have updated on one laptop :)

 

However, I just completly closed the Spoitfy App on my iPad, reopened it and it has come up with the message "Offline Playlists - You have offline playlists on more than three devices. To use offline playlists on this device please quit and restart Spotify."

 

^ Is this normal? I had offline playlists fine before, will it effect anything?

 

EDIT: Having to resync everything on the iPad (and probably the iPhone when I check it)... very annoying.

As far as I am aware it is not currently possible to change your Spotify username.
