[Account] Change Username

I know this is probably out there somewhere already, but I find it quite frustrating that I was assigned a "username" of lots of numbers when my account was created.  It makes it hard for people to find me, as I can't remember my username, let alone try to get them to.  Can we please make it an option to change our username?  Even if there is a once-a-year change or something...that would be such a helpful thing!

Hey folks,


Thanks for coming to the Community, and adding your vote to this idea!


We're keeping this idea as 'Not Right Now', as this isn't something we have any immediate plans to implement. We appreciate you sharing your thoughts.


If we do have any new info to share, rest assured we'll check back in here with a new status.




It is too confusing to tell people apart with the computer generated ID.   Need to be able to tell friends apart especially if premium member.


Even the most basic of implementations such as this Spotify can't handle. What a joke.


There was an error when I set up account.  I requested a display name to the account.  However, the name was not saved.  There is no way to go back and recreate account without disabling the entire family.  That is crazy!!  There should be a way to correct the user name

It's been 5 years and it is still not implemented?? I hate seeing numbers as my name!! My friend see it too and it's also on my playlists. This is silly!!


This sucks! It's almost 2020 and you guys still struggling to create a feature where people could simple change their username!!!!!


There you go guys, lots of opportunities to create a better service. Build and people will come.


why is this not already possible?? stupid


Come on Spotify... get this implemented already...

What the heck?!

To me this looks like another middlefinger pointing to the efforts of this community.


In Deezer it's very easy to change the username, and I'm not paying for premium service there, as with Spotify. I notice a lot of diversity marketing and little real voice to users' desires, such as changing the name that no longer represents their current identity. This is about break users expectations with a boring restricted experience.


Being able to change my username from the initial long combination of random letters and numbers would be really amazing, please let us change our usernames!
