Issue: Profile display name can't be searched after updating it

Issue: Profile display name can't be searched after updating it

Yesterday I changed my profile display name and it is not being shown in search results, but oddly enough if I search the old display name the new one shows up.

To test if this was an isolated issue I created a brand new Spotify account/profile. That one can't be found in search results under profiles either.

Reported this to support and they aren't aware of this bug.

Hi there @xyrena,

 

Thanks for reaching out. It can take some time after updating a display name for it to properly appear everywhere in the search. The same goes for a newly created account, which may only appear under the randomly generated username for the first few days. So give it some time and try again, it should all work as expected in due time.

 

Hope this helps.
