I tried creating an account with my email address and was not given the opportunity to select my username in the signup process. I thought that I would be able to choose a username after signing up, but once I logged in I saw that my username was automatically assigned as a bunch of random letters and numbers.
I googled how to change the username and found that it was not possible, so I figured I would make a new account and googled 'how to choose Spotify username' and came across this thread from your forum: https://community.spotify.com/t5/Accounts/Changing-Username/td-p/1405367
It indicates that if I were to create a new account I would be given the option to select my own username which is not the case (see attached image). Is there something I am missing? Where in the signup process do I have the option to choose a username?
