My Question or Issue

My issue is that there's no option to change my display name. I followed the steps to change it but there is no "Edit Profile" which is replaced with "Find Friends" I've tried on my phone and PC but I can't find a way to actually change the display name.

Hi there @Alloux,

thanks for reaching out to the community !


As this option was recently added, i recommend you perform a clean reinstall of your app following the steps provided on this Spotify answer.


This will insure that you're using the latest version of the app with all changes made on it.


Then, follow the steps provided here and change your display name.


Hope this'll help.

Let me know how it goes 🙂

I followed the clean reinstall and did as told but it still doesn't give me the option of changing the display name.

Hi @Alloux,


There a few more things we can try for better indication : 


- Try logging in with your account on a friend's/ family member's device to see if you get the option there

- Logging out > restarting their device > logging back in


Please also kindly share your Spotify version.


Waiting on your update 🙂
