How to change your Spotify username

Save yourself the horror from your childhood mistakes.

Sweden audio streaming platform Spotify has been a preference of over 113 million users due to its sheer features. It has over 50 million songs, 450,000 podcasts, and 3 billion playlists in its repository. You can find songs of prolific singers like Justin Bieber, Billie Eilish, Sia, Taylor Swift, etc.

Even though Spotify has some impressive features, it lacks basic functions. For instance, there’s just one toggle for an offline mode which means that in order to download new songs, you’ll have to manually toggle the feature. Shouldn’t this be automatic? The second one is the reason why you are here.
