There is no doubt that Spotify provides a great service. However, there is one little problem that users find annoying. Most of them are confused about how can they change Spotify username? Like with many other digital services, after creating an account you receive a username. The same holds true for Spotify too. Unfortunately, the username is just a random sequence of letters and numbers. And until recently, there was no way to change it.
Spotify is the largest audio streaming service in the world. When it comes to music streaming, there are only a handful of other apps, that provide the same level of services that Spotify offers to its users. Some users have been using Spotify since it first launched in 2008. You’ll probably find any music you’re looking for in this app. Add to that, the widest selection of podcasts from anywhere around the world and you’re in for countless hours of entertainment.
How To Change Spotify Username
Once you register with Spotify, you end up with a gibberish user name such as sdfa7x8. This is supposed to be your unique identifier on Spotify’s database. So theoretically there is no way you can change Spotify username once you register. However, you don’t need to remember this gibberish username. Furthermore, .it doesn’t even have to show up in your account either. And the way to do it is to use a display name.
A display name can be added to your account directly from Spotify or you can connect your Facebook account with Spotify and use your FB username instead. I’ll guide you through both the ways in this article.
