[Partnership] Add Sign-in with Google for Existing Spotify Users

Thanks, Spotify, for adding a Sign-in with Google button option. However, only new Spotify users creating a new account can currently use this feature. There is no current way to port over an existing Spotify account with all its great listening history and fine tuned song preferences into a new Spotify account. This leaves existing Spotify users with the only way to use this feature being to create a brand new Spotify account. Could you extend the Sign-in with Google feature to prior existing Spotify accounts, so that every Spotify user who wishes to can use it?

Connect to Google without password is now available but I have an older account and there is no option to use that feature.To use that feature I need to sign up new account.Add an option to connect to Google for older subscribers, just like there's a option to Connect to Facebook.

Google sign in was implemented because it was proposed as a community idea. Hence it is quite simple to understand that most people who requested that are already spotify members, and did not get the desired result from current implementation. 
And on the side note, it is already possible to link apple account to existing spotify one, so i cant imagine this being that hard.

I hope this feature gets implemented soon. Two-factor authentication for my Spotify account, yes please!

Let's get this rolling, very poor current implantation.  I would be embarrassed if I was the person that signed off on the currently implantation.

+1 for this. Plenty of other websites support linking and unlinking of accounts like Google, Facebook, Apple etc after sign-up, this should be an option in account settings. The only work around right now is to create a new account, cancel the old subscription and transfer everything over.
