I have some friends who are not on facebook but who have premium spotify accounts.

 

Is there way to add them to my friends toolbar?

 

Thanks!

Yes. Here are a couple of ways to view a Spotify user’s public profile:

  • If you know their username, type spotify:user:username in the search box. (Note that the username must be written in lower-case)
  • You can simply click on a username wherever it appears. For instance, if you are viewing a playlist created by another Spotify user, their username appears at the top of the page.

Once you are viewing a user’s public profile you can add the user to your People list by clicking the “Add ..” button at the top of the page.

Just want to make another note after sending some of you direct emails. 

 

Usernames are just one word or a series of numbers. You won't be able to search for just 'John Doe'. If your friend goes to his/her Overview Page he/she can find the right username.

 

Then search 'spotify:user:(his username)'. You'll then find the profile. https://www.spotify.com/account/overview/

When I add a person to my people list, are they notified? Am I automatically added to their people list? Can other spotify users see my people list?

Hi there echoecho!

 

Your people list is for your own use only--your friends aren't notified and you aren't automatically added to their list. 

 

Your Spotify profile will only display your Top Artists and Top Tracks (you can opt out of this in your Preferences) and your published playlists.

It's easy for you. Type spotify:user:username (with your friend's username) on the search bar to find your friend. At the top it should say "Make it easier to access username's music by adding them to your people list" with a button to add them.

 

 

However, it's a bit harder for your friend to add you. You need to give your "username" which is a string of numbers to your friend. Then your friend does the same as you, using your user number. You can find your number from your profile page: click here
