How does this work with the new web player? The solution you provided doesn't yield any results when I try it and there's no other option to find people you follow.

I don't get an error message, it just doesn't have any search results when I type my friend's username

I can't find friends who have spaces in their user name

That's not helpful though. I have their name but not their user name. All that shows up is that they added a song to a play list under their real name. Not their user name.

Hello!

The following solution works for the Web Player.

If you know your friend's username, you can follow these steps: 

1. Go to the url bar 

2. Type spotify.com/user/username

This worked for me: https://open.spotify.com/user/[username] - where you replace [username] with username.  I can't believe finding people is so hard!!!

Hey folks,

 

Here are a few suggestions made by members of the Community:

 

@Jude /@JayLB suggest asking your friend to send you a link to one of their playlists. When you open the link to the playlist, you will find a link to their profile.

 

@David suggests typing 'spotify:user:[username]' into the search bar on the desktop or mobile app.

 

Note: if your friend doesn't know their username, they can easily find it by doing the following:

  • go to your profile page in the app
  • click on the three-dot menu below your display name (note: this is not the same as your username) and click Share > Copy Spotify URI
  • paste the URI - you will see your username in the format spotify:user:[username] (your username is what appears between the square brackets)

If you want to change your username, make sure to check out this thread to find out how.

 

Hope that helps!
