My profile picture keeps disappearing

My Question or Issue

I try to change the photo of my profile, but every time I upload a new photo, it shows that everything is in order, but when I restart the Spotify app, I see nothing.

I reinstalled Spotify several times (also deleted everything in appdata) and my account is not connected to Facebook.

My Question or Issue

I've been trying to change my profile picture for earlier and it was working fine beforehand, I changed my profile picture to a new image but when I refresh it doesn't save. I've tried multiple different pictures and they upload but don't save. I've tried reinstalling Spotify and it seems my Spotify profile may be glitched for its showing playlists that are private as "public". Any help please?

Operating System

Windows 10,



I wanted to change my profile picture and I did but it wouldn't save? Everytime I logged in and out the profile picture would be gone? It doesn't appear on my phone app or web player either. Is there anything I can do or should I just wait it out?


Thank you in advance !




Hey @joyfuljww 


The changes should appear within a day, usually a few hours.

I would recommend reinstalling the desktop client, maybe there is an issue preventing profile picture from being updated.


Let me know how it goes!



the default picture still remains when I change my profile picture

also it doesnt change when i restart the spotify

I tried reinstall but it's same
