Spotify Home Page Made for You Section Title Shows "Made For (Username)"

Solved!

Spotify Home Page Made for You Section Title Shows "Made For (Username)"

On my Spotify home page's "Made For You" section, the title shows "Made For (My Username)". I saw other people's Spotify home page, and it seems that it should instead be "Made For (My Created Profile Display Name)", since this is how it is shown everywhere else in the app, including the Browse. I want to know if this is simply the case for everyone, that on home page it shows "Made For "Username (instead of display name)", or is it a bug I have? Because I prefer it showing my display name, or even just simply "Made For You", instead of username, which was something randomly created years ago that cannot be changed.

 

I have attached a photo to show where I am referring to on home page.

Hey, @a1dang1bb1e 
Welcome to Spotify Community, and thanks for reaching out to us!

It should display your "display name", instead of your username. Let's make a test and check if it solves the question...

  1. On your Spotify for Desktop, tap your profile photo on the top of your screen (right-side);
  2. Now, go to your Profile;
  3. When you open your profile, tap on your name. You will be able to change it...
  4. Choose your display name and save it
  5. Wait a few minutes and check your Home screen again to see if the bug was solved.

Keep me posted and stay awesome!

If you have further questions or if you need anything else, let me know!

Hi @Luan ,

Thank you so much for your reply! I just tried that and you are right, it worked! However, interestingly, once I tried changing the display name a second time once again back to my initial display name, it reverted back to showing the "username" in that section. I wonder if this is because for that specific display name, I have numbers in the name?

Whereas, when I change it to any other display names without a number included, it successfully shows Made For "Display Name".

 

Kind regards,

Aidan

To follow up,

Hi @Luan, I just did more testing, and I found out that I can change display name to anything including symbols like "#" within the name and it still works. However, whenever I have any single "number" included, then the Made For You reverts to showing Made For "Username". So, the conclusion seems to be that either this is the way the system algorithm works, or perhaps my Spotify just has a bug which has problems showing names with numbers included.

Hey, @a1dang1bb1e 

Happy to know that my answer was helpful to you. Thanks for sharing this additional information. I'll double-check with Spotify folks and once I have an answer, I return here. Super sorry for the delay in replying back to you, tho.

And remember that you can count on us, always, when necessary!
