Hey @noideaaa

Spotify Customer Support are super nice and friendly and can move your music etc over to your new account. You can get in touch with them through the online form or if you have a Twitter account, feel free to tweet @SpotifyCares at anytime 🙂

Wow. This is surprising that Spotify doesn't have the simple option of changing a username like many others do within the account settings. Spotify reps should at least be able to change your username if you contact them via Twitter or online form. Sadly, they have some unspecified reason why they choose not to give us a more convenient and user friendly experience.

I find this so annoying. I hope Spotify provides a better solution. Im a premium user and I've convinced a lot of my friends to subscribe to spotify but I can't get a simple solution to changing my username.

Your website said if I just wanted to change the username that appears in public to just connect my account to Facebook. I did, and it still shows my old username except now I have my fb photo with it. What am I supposed to do to make this work?

Hey guys, so i've been dealing with this for a while now. The way I was able to do it is that the username used for the spotify community board can be used in the event that you do not log in with facebook. So I went to the My Settings page and the Personal Profile tab, and the username tab underneath that. There is an option to change username. I did that, logged in with that username and my facebook password and it worked like a charm.

 

Let me know if that works out for anybody else.

I don't want to create a new account and lose my followers/playlist/radio

Please Spotify team, make us change easily our username, we can accept even just ONE change, that's good enough.

I also join this petition. I created my account years ago with a nickname I used before, and now I want to change it to something more similar to my real name. This cannot really be that difficult, since I suppose the primary key of your database are e-mail addresses.

The primary key is the username, you can change your email.

My suggestion would be for you to create a new account with different email address from the one you use for facebook (past or present). That will give you a Spotify username of your choice.

 

Once you have this new account, contact customer support and they'll help you migrate your Premium privileges (if you have them), library, playlists, friends, etc. to this new account.
