How to Change Your Spotify Username and Profile Picture

We show you how to change Spotify username and profile picture without leaving the desktop app, while explaining the difference between the service's different names.


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 , the web's most popular 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.

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:

  1. 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.

  2. 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”.
