You need to know their numerical username, and then search for it using:

spotify:user:USERNAME

 

If you are in this situation, since you will need to ask them for that anyways, it is normally easier to just ask them to send you a link (Right click > Copy HTTP link) to one of their playlists, since you can easily follow the links to their own profile from that.

I think everyone would agree; If you don't have a Facebook account, than the solutions proposed by Spotify are only workarounds. Basically, Spotify didn't engineer their software for Spotify users. They engineered it for Facebook users. So us people who don't have Facebook have a considerably crappier experience. This is not a mistake. It's by design. And I obviously do not agree with the design, which I believe is quite subpar on this particular point.

Hey! Welcome to the community :) 

 

To my knowledge the spotify:user:USERNAME search only works on the desktop client (and maybe iPad? not sure!). 

Unfortunately, I'm not aware of an alternative search for usernames on mobile devices.

I have gotten friend requests from losts of other non premium users, so I'm fairly sure that me not being a premium user has nothing to do wt my ability wt sending out friend requests. How do you send out friend requests?
