How to Change Spotify Display Name


By default, your Spotify display name is the same as your Spotify username, which is a random combination of letters and numbers. Thankfully, Spotify lets you change your display name to something more personal, which will make it easier for other users to find you on the platform. However, it’s only possible to change your Spotify display name using the Spotify mobile app. Please note that this will only change your Spotify display name and not your Spotify username, which is a unique identifier that Spotify doesn’t let you change.
