Spotify, one of the world’s leading music streaming app, is now available in 79 countries and boasts of a 207 million-strong active user base, including 96 million subscribers. The service was launched in India for INR 119 per month after a 30-day trial. It’s also available on prepaid plans starting from INR 13 for a day to INR 1189 for a year (available at a discounted price of INR 699 till June 30, 2020).

With Spotify Premium, users can stream over 40 million songs without any ads and play music offline without an internet connection, among other things. You can get the student version of Spotify Premium, which also costs half and comes with as many benefits.

While you can create a custom username while signing up for the service if you didn’t pay heed or just have had a change of heart and wish to change your Spotify username, here is how that can be done in a few simple steps.
