You Can Change Your Spotify Display Name

Spotify has plenty of worthwhile features, from downloading your library to listen offline to transferring music between Apple Music and Spotify. The streaming app has certainly improved since its 2008 launch, and if you’ve kept the same display name all these years, you might be looking for a change. While you can’t change your username (that one is permanent), you can edit your display name—that’s the one that appears publicly when people go to your profile or check out your playlists.

If you’ve become disenchanted with your original choice of display names in Spotify, you can change it on the mobile app and the desktop by following four easy steps.
