This doesn't seem to really change it though? I cannot log into the account with the username I "changed" into, I still need to use the old one.

How long before it reflected on your account? It does on this page but not when I access my account from other pages/locations.

That will only change your username for the Spotify Community, it won't affect your main account you use to log in.

 

I can't believe there's still no way to do this and the solution provided is to delete the account and create a new one.

No way to change preference if you used fb as you log in details...

If I already have a premium account, would I have to cancel the membership to create a new account to have my username changed?

Hey @thebjq,

 

No, create your new account with a different email address from the one you use for Facebook, and choose your new Spotify username of your choice.

 

Once you have this new account, fill out the contact form, and someone from Spotify will be happy to help you migrate your Premium privileges, library, playlists, friends, etc. to this new account.

 

Hope it helps. 🙂

Yes that's the only solution and it really works. It may be a little inconvenient but it works. I thought that it would be difficult but it's easy. After 2 emails to Spotify Support, I'm enjoying my Spotify like nothing happened. Just follow these, instead of complaining. You know what I mean... 🙂

1. Create a new account using a different email address and the username you want to use.
2. Email their Support Team (support@spotify.com) with the information on the old and new account like your email address and Facebook name.
3. You'll receive a reply email that will ask you information about the old account to verify it for security of the account.
4. Supply the information asked by replying on the email.
5. Wait for the confirmation of the transfer.
6. Once confirmation is received, check your Spotify and tada!!!

They also give you free time for you Premium subscription on the old account so that you can use it on thd new account.

Hope this helps.

You do realize the OP wanted to change his Spotify username? Not his Spotify community username, right? There's a big difference.

Yes, I know that OP want to change username on Sportify, NOT on Spotify Community.
