I recently signed up, and set my display name to my first name, not realizing this field would not be editable. I'd like to add my last name.
I understand that my username is unchangeable, and is a random string - that's fine. I'm just looking to edit my Display Name, which is shown to my friends on Spotify. Is there any way to do this?
I don't have a Facebook account, so connecting to Facebook to change my name isn't an option.
Solved! Go to Solution.
After chatting with Support I got an answer, so I'm answering my own question in case anyone else has the same question and finds this.
It is not possible to change a username or a display name at this time, which is pretty unfortunate. I understand the limitations on changing a username, but a non-unique display name should be editable. That being said, the support staff were super helpful and were able to copy all my information (including Premium status, playlists, etc.) over to a new account, where I was able to choose a new display name.
I think it should be made more obvious during sign up that the field is unchangeable - "What should we call you?" feels like field that can be edited. A note that it is permanant would be nice.
