Whether its from an old alias or due to a literal name change, everyone needs to change their username at one point or another. Today we’ll be showing you how to change your username and profile picture in Spotify, the web’s most popular music streaming service.
Before we start, though, you should be aware that Spotify has two “user names” associated with your account. The first is the one that you use to log in to your account, and the second is the one that shows across the app – to yourself and others.
You can’t change your login username, so it’s the latter that we’ll be focusing on today. If you do need to change the username you login with, Spotify’s support team is your best bet.
With that said, here’s how to change Spotify username and picture in the desktop app:
How to Change Your Spotify Username and Profile Picture
Performing a Spotify username change is actually quite easy. You can do it straight from your desktop app without having to open your browser. Here’s how:
- Click on your Spotify profile picture in the top-right corner
It should be next to the friend activity pane in the top right, or directly next to the window buttons if you have that minimized.
- Open your Spotify Profile
This step is important. Though it feels natural to press “Account”, this will take you to the Spotify webpage, where you’ll be unable to change username or profile picture. Instead, you need to click “Profile”.
- Click on your current username
- Change your Spotify username and profile picture
To change name on Spotify, simply click on the “Name” field and type whatever you’d like. To change your profile picture, press the pencil icon over your Spotify image, browse to one on your PC, and click “Open”.
Finally, hit the white “Save” button to instantly apply the changes for you and your freinds.
