One of the most popular services for streaming music is Spotify. Whether you are using your desktop, Android or IOS, all devices support Spotify.

Since everyone has easy access to Spotify, you can change your username on Spotify to have an identity that people can easily find. You can also give yourself a creative nickname to sound interesting on Spotify.

Podcasts are another option for listening to audio. Additionally, you can also make the songs and podcasts you listened to public on Spotify so that everyone can see them.

So, it is important to have a strong profile on Spotify if you want to give your playlist public access. This article from Around The Social will show you how to change your username on Spotify.

It is very easy to change your username on Spotify. Updating your entire profile is an easy experience if you follow the guidelines provided by Spotify.

These two options serve different purposes and can be used depending on your needs.

Change the Displayed Name

When you sign up for Spotify, you give yourself a name that will be displayed in your profile. If at any point you’re tired of your name, you can change your display name using Spotify on your PC and mobile app.

How to Change the Display Name on PC?

To change your Spotify username on your desktop computer, you must have an existing Spotify account. To proceed, launch the Spotify desktop app and sign in to your account:

  • Select your profile by clicking the drop-down menu.
  • Click “Profile” and then select your username.
  • Enter a new name and click “Save”.
  • Your profile will now read “Your New Name.”

This is how to use a desktop app on Spotify to change your username.

How to Change the Display Name on Mobile?

First of all, you must have Spotify installed on your Android and IOS devices. Once the installation is complete, log in to your existing account and follow the steps below:

  • Navigate to “View Profile” by clicking on the settings button.
  • Select “Edit Profile”.
  • Enter a new name and click “Save”.
  • The new name will now appear on your profile.

This way you can change Spotify username using your mobile app.

Log in to Facebook

If you don’t want to spend your time searching for a unique name, you can connect your Spotify account to your Facebook account and have the Facebook name as your Spotify username.

This is a fairly simple process that can be done using PC and mobile apps. Open Spotify on your computer and follow the steps below to change your username on Spotify by connecting it to Facebook.

  • Next to your profile, there is a drop-down option. Click it.
  • Go to “Settings”.
  • Under ‘Social’, click ‘Connect with Facebook’.
  • There will be a redirect to a different browser.
  • Enter your username and password and click “Login”.

Your name will show as the account name and your Spotify will be linked to your Facebook account as soon as you log in. 

Similarly, for mobile, you can click on the settings icon and scroll down to see the “Connect with Facebook” option under “Social”. Log in to your Facebook account to have the same username.

On the other hand, if you’re new to Spotify and don’t have an account yet, you can establish one by visiting Spotify and selecting “Log in with Facebook” to use your Facebook credentials.

This way, you won’t need to change your username on Spotify.


Spotify offers a free option and a premium option for using the account. The good thing is that you won’t need to upgrade your account unless you want an additional feature like downloading music.

With the free version, you can easily listen to music with mobile data as much as you want. Here we learned about one of the ways to update your profile: change your username on Spotify.
