Adding Picture to Profile

It seems like I should be able to add my picture to the profile but I can't.  Is this feature only available if you link it to your facebook?

 

If there's a way to add profile pictures WITHOUT linking to Facebook please let me know.

 

THANKS!!

Since the new Desktop update my pic is gone. How do i get it back? I dont want to be linked to Facebook. 



If you mean your profile picture in spotify, only the picture from facebook profiles is currently displayed and only if your account is linked to facebook. Some background here.

 

If you mean your avatar in the community, you can change that from your community account settings here.

Re: Adding Picture to Profile

It would appear that with 406 people wanting to be able to place a photo on their spotify account with out linking to FB that it might become possible to have this feature (it seems like we used to have it before FB).  People have been asking for it for 3 years. Many many changes have occured in spotify during this time period yet this has not been incorporated. PLEASE would someone from Spotify read the community topics and reply? Thanks

Too bloody right.

You can't keep ignoring the people.

This isn't a place where the leaders make all the decisions. This isn't North Korea.

The majority of people who use this service are from coutnires where you have a say and the listen.

Spotify needs to improve.

I might just move over to another streaming service.

I just can't believe that they've ignored a simple request for so long.

Re: Adding Picture to Profile

Hey!

 

At the minute, the picture in a Spotify profile is a copy of your Facebook profile picture. You cannot currently add a photo through Spotify.

 

If you'd like to make it an 'Idea' (I think you should, a separate picture function could be pretty cool), just head to the 'Spotify Ideas and Feedback' section of the Community. Post it here, then you'll then be able to see who agrees with you.

Re: Adding Picture to Profile

Thanks!! For those of us that had Spotify BEFORE it was part of Facebook we like not having to integrate it.  I shall post the suggestion as you stated.

 

Have a great day!

Re: Adding Picture to Profile

Spotify wants me to sign up for their service, but I can only have a profile photo if I link to a facebook account which I refuse to sign up for? No thank you.

Re: Adding Picture to Profile

If you are a new user, you can't sign up for Spotify at all without a Facebook account.

 

Which makes me wonder how you're posting here.

The bad part is it doesnt even show your facebook photo even when you log in to facebook and spotify.

Jckinnick - For your Facebook photo to pop up, you'll need to connect your Spotify and Facebook accounts from inside your Spotify. After this, you'll see your nice little picture in the corner of Spotify.

Re: Adding Picture to Profile

Jckinnick - According to your account, you're not linked up. Log onto Spotify using your username 'jckinnick', then head to 'Preferences' (under 'Edit'), and scroll down to 'Connect to Facebook'. Input your details here and you'll be on your way.
