It can be not easy to find friends on Spotify if you don't know their username. Unlike many other social media platforms, Spotify uses a text string as a username rather than a display name.

This means that unless you know the other person's username, you won't be able to find them. The good news is that your Spotify username is usually easy to find. It is listed in your profile, which can be accessed by clicking on the profile icon in the top right corner of the Spotify homepage. Once you've found your username, you can start adding friends and listening to music together.


Add friends on your desktop:

If you're using Spotify on a desktop app, there are two ways to add friends.

  • The first way is to find your friend's username and type it into the search bar. Once you've found your friend's gear icon, click the “Add Friend” button.
